LEROY UPDATE: This dog is serious a CHAMP! He is shocking dr’s left and right and defying all odds! We went to our local vet today and she said everything looked amazing! He is healing really far faster than she thought he would with it being such and intense surgery, and that it was one of the best amputation incisions she has ever seen! We were lucky that all of our stitches were internal and we only added a few precautionary staples. Also, he did not need a drain. He uses his back leg like a little pogo stick and hopping all over the place! It’s a full time job to keep him still ha! We’ve been sleeping on the couches downstairs to be with him and while we were sleeping last night the little booger snuck upstairs to sleep in the master! He had’t even done a stair yet so we were obviously shocked! Kudos to Leroy but we will be blocking the stairs from now on! We have been having better BMs which is good! the only issues we faced today is that he keeps peeing on his bed. Not a little dribble, but like a stand up and pee. It’s only happened twice and both times were when I gave him his anti-anxiety optional pill (gave it to him day one of coming home and today for the vet). Not a big deal, just wondering if anyone has experienced this as well. Our appetite is still strong and our spirits are still high! So proud of this big guy! Thanks for everyone’s support and comments!

    This dog ABSOLUTELY amazes me! 🙂 And obviously he is amazing all the Vets too!
    Guessing the pee is related to that anxiety pill. But check with your Vet next time you go in if it continues. Glad he doesn’t need a drain and glad his poop is back to normal. Surely this little guy thas SUPERHERO stamped somewhere on his butt!:-):-)
    Keep these great updates coming WITH PICTURES! 🙂
    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

    Oh, Leroy, 😳 Sneaking up the stairs! Bailey had accidents in her bed while sleeping when she was on Tramadol. I think she was so relaxed she didn’t know what she was doing, or care! Even with only 60% of her bladder left, the only accidents she had was when she was on strong meds. I put the pee pads between the foam and cover, so the foam would not ruin, and just washed the cover.
    They know how to do an amputation at A&M. Bailey’s is really good, too.

    Leroy, you brilliant little sneak you! I laughed when I pictured you snoring upstairs all snug as a bug in the big conference bed and your poor pawrents scrunched up on the couch!!! 😂 Good one Leroy! Can’t wait to hear more adventures!
    I give Stewie 2 x 100mg of Trazadone, for his vet visits. He is 50kg and although he gets dopey and very relaxed he hasn’t had any accidents. Stewie can also hold his bladder forever and a day, if I let him!
    Sloppy kisses from Stewie👅🐾
    & hugs from his adoring pack,
    Petra, Paul, & his feline siblings, Mr. Spike, Chester Molester & Miss Lily 🐾🐾🐾❤️.
