River Recovers

We got to bring River home at 3:00 pm yesterday. He was so groggy and out of it, with goop all around his eyes. When he saw us he started crying a little; all my mommy instincts kicked in and I wanted to make the pain go away for him.

When we got home, Turtle and I cuddled up on the couch with him. He started crying even more, he was so pathetic. River would fall asleep and they wake up whimpering and whining. Poor guy! But even with all that, he still went to the front door when he had to go potty--it gives me hope in the house-training department.

By this morning he was back to his usual friskiness. (And still humping Boy!) We're supposed to somehow limit his activity to just his normal walks--yeah right, tell that to a 4 month old puppy that wants to chase his big brother around!

He will be on pain medication for the next three days, which makes him a bit mellower then typical, which will hopefully aide in the healing process.

He was such a brave boy yesterday!
