Friday, Day 8

I was half asleep at 5am this morning when I needed to go to the bathroom. I walked like a zombie into the bathroom and was attacked by 2 crazy puppies. They were jumping all over me and wagging their tails so hard that their rear was wagging also. I guess they are feeling better. Chance has been doing the cough, cough, cough/gag thing a lot more - maybe 20 times last night. I think he is finally clearing the congestion out of his chest.

Once I woke up, I took the dogs outside and fed them. I started with some chicken. I usually have to bring the chicken to them and tell them to eat it. This time they were both jumping at me and fighting with each other to get the chicken. I also gave them food in 2 bowls. They each ate about 1/2 the food and I have seen them come back for more. Needless to say, I am very happy about their recovery.

They play with toys a little. When they are outside they play fight with each other. They will both follow me around the yard a bit if I tell them to......

I gave them a bath today. I waited 10 days past surgery as suggested by the animal shelter.

I fed them again and they are eating like crazy. I put them on a leash to take outside in the backyard to do their business since we are having a party and the gate keeps opening and closing. We need to work on walking with a leash. All they did was wrap themselves in it. As my dad says, all knots were created by dogs.

I gave them a can of dog food to split and they ate it all in about 10 minutes. Their appetite is definitely back.
