Poco Update

Poco had his surgery yesterday and all went well.  I was a little surprised when I saw him.  I'm not sure what I thought he was going to look like but I wasn't expecting what I saw.  He looked just pitiful.

This is a picture of us when we got home.  The stitches and being shaved around his eye just looked painful and I thought he wasn't going to be himself for quite some time... boy was I wrong.  He laid with me until after dinner and then all of a sudden he had a burst of energy.  I took him and Nube outside thinking we would just hang out in the yard... nope he wanted a walk.

We walked all the way to the lake... just a couple days ago we tried and we didn't make it all the way to the lake and I still had to carry him over half way on our short walk.  He was so excited and took the lead of the pack position like he always does.  He is always about 5 feet in front of me and Nube is always about 5 feet behind me.  This evening if felt like the world was back in order as Poco and Nube took their spots back.

I had to take a picture to show his accomplishment.  His favorite thing to do by the lake is to roll in the grass but I had to tell him that was a no go until his eye healed a bit... I surely don't need the stitches to fall out before their time.

The day turned out to be a great day and I am happy with the vet we went to.  Not only did they do the eye surgery but they clipped his toenails, gave him a bath and cleaned his teeth.  It was quite the spa day.  Hopefully we will have many more healthy days ahead of us.  For now I will be thankful Poco is back to himself.


  1. He probably thinks he looks cool.

  2. Glad to hear he is doing well and glad your back on the road....please be safe in your travels....Mucho luv from Colorado, the Smith Boyz
