Rooster update...

It will be atleast 10 days before Rooster can do this...
my poor guy is having a rough time of it...
the surgery went well...but he is not handling it well...
they put a cone on his head right before we left the vets office...
when we got in the truck he went bezerk...
thrashing his head around...
I was afraid he was going to knock himself or me out...
he managed to get it off...
he settled down a bit...
but when we took off to drive home...
he went nuts again...
it was a tough drive home...
we had to wait in the truck for 30 minutes...
with me holding him close...
his face stuck to the a/c vent...
till my hubby got him...
when he saw his Daddy he was happier...
but the minute he got outside...
he was scared again...
once we got him in his kennel...he settled down...
he gets really nervous when we take him out to do his business..
we think maybe he's just sore....he's on pain meds...
he doesn't bother the bandage when he's in the kennel...
but the minute you take him out...he tries to attack it...
it's going to be a long few days for us all...
thank you all for all the sweet comments and prayers...
I can't wait till my boy is swimming and chasing his ball again...
I put his tennis ball in the kennel with him...
seemed to make him happier...

Poor sweet Rooster. We bet when he can get off the pain meds he will do better. We have found sometimes they cause behavior that would not present itself without them. But we know he probably needs them right now. We are thinking of all of you and keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. We hope it get much better for you all very soon. Hugs and nose kisses
