Dickson is finally . . .

Hi everyone. It's been a very, very long time since I've posted. Been very busy with things, and don't have that much time to check in. I see there are lots of new people here.

Well, we finally did it. Our Dickson got neutered on Wednesday, along with having surgery on both eyes for cherry eye. In a way it was a good thing we waited this long for the cherry eye, because two weeks ago only one eye had it. It wasn't until a week ago that his other eye showed signs of it. The poor thing is soooo miserable, especially since he has to wear a cone for 10 days. He so desperately wants to scratch, scratch, scratch. I'll help by scratching behind his ears and his neck. He'll give me kisses on my hand. He's doing much better today. Yesterday he stayed very close to me, even taking a nap with me in the afternoon. Today he has a bit more energy, and is fighting with me when I try to put his ointment on his eyes. Next Saturday he will be able to get the cone off. I feel so bad for him, bumping into things and not being able to go for his training next week. He loves going to his training classes. Luna, in the meantime, misses playing with him. I'm trying to keep her a bit subdued for a few days, telling her to take it easy with him. She definitely knew he wasn't himself yesterday. Today, they did begin playing with each other a little bit. I'll tell them to take it easy. Hmmmm, I wonder if they really understand me. I know that Luna is wondering what that plastic thing is around his neck.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Aw, poor baby. He must be miserable. I hope his healing is swift and relatively painless for him and you both.

Poor little guy, the cones must drive them crazy. At least he'll only have to wear it once since he got everything taken care of. Hope he recovers quickly!

It is amazing how similar their markings are.
