dog surgery...poor duke

This is Duke when we picked him up from the vet yesterday.

He has only a small sliver of ear left.

Plus he had a tumor removed from his foot..and, he was neutered. I thought he was too old to go through that surgery, after having all the presurgery testing done way back when Suri was spayed, we decided not to do it. After all, Duke was already so old. But since he was going under anesthesia anyway...we decided to just do it.

So poor guy, he has been really through a lot. The Cone of Shame, as Joe calls the big plastic collar he came home with...isn't working out. Suri is afraid of it, and when Duke follows her while wearing it, she hides under the kitchen table, and when he tries to get under there, it crashes into everything, and was almost worse for his ear...

Just a little bit of Suri spam, she's so cute.

Jon, Char, and Cam at the playground...we went there after we dropped Duke off at the vet...


This fantastic state park has a splash park! It was great fun, I had my suit on too, and got soaked.

It was great did weigh heavily on me though, the fact that the minivan was making strange noises...that got louder as we adventured further from home...when we left the park, that van sounded like a choo-choo train, and when an actual train nearby let out a loud whistle, Jon thought it was hilarious.

So today Duke is recovering at home, and the minivan is in the shop, again.

I took some girls to the library today, and swam in the pool with Mali....ah, summertime....

Poor old Duke :-( The cone of shame is the worst. When we had our girl spayed she didn't have to wear one as she couldn't reach the wound, our boy had to have one and HATED it.
