Bigly Bestest Big Day

@thebiglybestestdoggie: Today’s the day I get my leg fixed. Surgery is this morning, and I’m kind of scared. But Momma and Daddy will take good care of me while I recover, and those crazy kids are here all the time now, so I know they’ll help out too. I suppose it would be nice to not have to hop around on three legs anymore…

Please wish me lots of luck!

~Hey friends, hope you are doing well during these challenging times. Wishing you all good health and better days ahead. πŸ’œ~

  1. Aww Jett, I’d hoped you wouldn’t need the surgery but you’ll be in good hands. You’re a brave boy.
    I’m sorry I’m a little late commenting but how did it go? Really hoping it went as smoothly as possible, sending love xxxx

    • Thank you, Caz ❀ We really, really wanted to avoid surgery… unfortunately, it ended up being a complete ACL tear that just wouldn’t heal on its own. The procedure went well, but those first couple of days were a challenge. But each day has held improvement… and yesterday evening, he finally smiled again for the first time since his surgery, so that was truly wonderful progress 😊❀

      • Aww poor little guy. It’s awful when dogs are poorly or have surgery, they can’t tell you how they feel & you can’t explain what’s going on to them. So glad he’s cracked a little smile – onwards and upwards from here hopefully, and he’s in the best hands with you there for cuddles. I bet he’ll be loving all the attention as star of the show πŸ˜‰
        Feel better soon, Jett xx

    • Thanks, Joan! Augh, the dreadful cone… we struggled beyond belief trying to get it on Jett. I seriously thought we might become his next meal before he willingly had any part of that injustice. We ended up having to go back to the animal hospital to get a more flexible fabric ‘cone’. Fortunately, that is working well enough for the time being. πŸ™‚

      Did Tailor have a torn ACL too?

      • No, he had a congenital defect, a floating kneecap, that eventually caused pain and a limp. He was only 4 when he had the surgery, spunky enough to crack his “indestructible” cone 3 times before his follow-up. Thank God for duck tape. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Kathy. I agree; this was definitely not ideal timing. With the way things are right now, we couldn’t even go inside and be with him before or after the procedure. 😫 But there is a silver lining in this, too… the kids are home all the time right now, so he’s got constant companionship and lots of love and attention as he works toward recovery πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œ
