Bio: We got him from a breeder at 6 weeks. He was born on Christmas day 1999 and was a great comfort to us after losing my Mother to cancer that same year at Thanksgiving. He is our first baby! His cousin was Maxy, a 13 year old Yellow Lab who passed away on 7/13/06. He also had a friend named Bear(RIP), a 9 year old Chocolate Lab that my sister rescued from www.petfinders.org. He loves to swim in the lake and used to love to antagonize Maxy.
Forums Motto: Whatever falls from the table is mine!
Had my 12 week post-op x rays and the doctor says I'm 80% healed! That's supposedly great news. 1 more month of restricted activity and if all goes well I'll be free to do whatever I want again. Wish me luck!
I'm finally home from that hospital-2 weeks away is a long time! It's taken me 1 whole week to adjust but I'm feeling a little better now. My Mom is glad that my appetite is finally back. We go back to see the Vet today for our post-op check. God-I hate that place! Wish me luck!!
