Gus Post Surgery

It's been awhile since I posted any news about Gus & Dutchess, so here's an update. These pics were taken the evening of December 16th, just a couple hours after Gus came home from his surgery. As you can see, he is not usual, full of vim and vinegar self.

When I called the vets office in the afternoon to check how he was doing, the vet's assistent told me he was just "wonderful"...she went on to tell me that "we would need to keep him very quiet for the next few days and limit his play and activity"....HA, are you kidding me???


I explained to her how hard this would be as he was "a holy terror" and she was truly shocked, her comments were, "but he's such a sweetie" "I just love him" "I can't imagine that" "he's just been a pleasure here"...so then I asked her what kind of drugs they had him on and could I get a prescription for home use? (I thought this was a very reasonable request), she didn't seem to think so.

His lethargy lasted for that evening only, by the next morning he was going full tilt, doing his best to engage Dutchess in a wrestling match and in general making it very difficult to "keep him quiet". I have to say that Gus is a "moaner" in his sleep, he doesn't do the whole running and wolfing in his sleep as most dogs seem to do, he will do a lot of whole body stretching and moaning as if he is just completely wore out and it just feels so good to lay down, and he has done this since we brought him home at 7 weeks of age. So the night of his surgery, he did much more moaning in his sleep (it sounded like he was in misery) and we did feel really sorry for the poor little guy, right up until the next morning when he tried to hurdle the couch and then started running circles around the family room. If we yelled "GUS, stop it!" once, we yelled it a thousand times.


You can also see by the pics that even Dutchess felt sorry for him and shared her bed, she has since regretted this as he has chewed a hole in it, tries to bury his toys in it by balling it up and has confiscated it as his own (she now has her own new bed). Can't you just see the orneriness written all over his face in the last pic?!
