3 weeks post op

Poko got his staples out on Monday, and is doing well!  He went back to doggie daycare on Tuesday – without any troubles.  I was a little nervous, but wanted/needed to get back to our routine.  Poko of course was looking forward to going back, and was excited to see Frank again (owner, that greats us each morning).  Poko also got to hang out with his friend, Jax, and came home happy 😉

I’ve noticed that Poko sleeps a little more, and isn’t as perky in the mornings.  Once I get him up, get the paper, feed him, he’s fine….but then he curls up and sleeps again.  He’s happy while he’s up and about, but likes his ortho bed!

We’ve started going on walks again.  Starting with about 7-8 minutes (around the block) and now going about 15 minutes.  It feels great to be on the walks again.  Poko and I, both, grin from ear to ear.  It’s always been our bonding time.

I’m thinking of going to the dog park this weekend.  I’m going to keep it short, and make sure there’s not too much running.  Any advise on the dog park?  When is a good time to go back?  Is 3 weeks too soon?

    wow, sounds like poko is doing great! we don’t have any thoughts on the dog park – they kinda scare me with too many ‘bully’ dogs loose.. but if poko is used to going, he probably will be ok. we’re glad to hear he is availing himself of ‘medicinal naps’….something every tripawd learns to enjoy.

    Oh that’s terrific news, it’s great getting that groove back isn’t it?

    Those naps may be a sign that he still needs more time to recuperate. Three weeks really isn’t that long.

    Dog parks….well, take ’em slow. Usually dogs don’t even notice that a Tripawd has a missing leg. But how things play out really depends on the Tripawd and who’s there at the time. For our own Wyatt Ray tripawd, we aren’t big fans, he’s too much of a neurotic freak to have a good time there. Just play it by ear and see how it goes. Then let us know!
