Blackjack is home and resting comfortably. Our other greyhound, Zoom, was whimpering in excitement at seeing him come up the stairs with us. He really missed him!
Thank you so much for all your support. When we were afraid that he might not make it, you were such a comfort to us. I definitely didn’t know much about aftercare and what to expect, but you have all been a Godsend.
We’ll keep you posted on how things progress!

Nancy & Blackjack,
Yayyyy!!!! Morgan (Calamity’s litter-mate "twin") was sooo excited to see her when I brought her home too. He hates to be without her even though there are 3 others when she is away! They are so close.
I’m so glad Blackjack is home & doing well. I fashioned a shirt for Calamity from an old t-short of mine, cutting off the sleeves, sewing closed (very crudely!) the sleeve hole that she didn’t need, and making a cut up the back so I could tie it on her for fit.
My best advise is to take it a day at a time and realize you may have ups & downs and meltdowns, but keep in mind it’ll be a short heal and you will get through it & so will Blackjack.
Feel free to check out Calamity’s ups & downs if you ever wonder if he is progressing right: http://www.trix…..gspot.com/
