  • Shark surgery today

    I just dropped off my Shark to get tacked. I don't remember being nearly this big of a wreck when I took Ferg. I should have about 3-4 hours of waiting before he's done and they call me with updates, so if y'all would say a prayer or send happy thoughts or whatever is your thing for my Shark AND my sanity, I would surely appreciate it.

        Sending good vibes for Shark and you! I'm sure he will be fine! Is he being neutered now too or doing that later?

            He is out of surgery and awake, and everything went fine. And now I can breathe again.

            No, just tacked today. We'll neuter later. My vet is hesitant to do more than 1 procedure at a time on the big guys these days. She lost one (in his line) not too long ago due to complications after surgery, and it was possibly (I don't remember exact details) related to doing everything they did at once, so she wanted to keep it one at a time. Personally, I wouldn't mind Shark keeping his boys awhile longer to see if the extra testosterone will help him put on some weight. Not like he's gonna knock up Ferg...

                Slug Ferg is the most horrendous instigator in the history of the world. They're gonna need to be separated for a week, at least.

                  He's home and doing great. Snoozing quietly in his crate, and everything went well.

                    That's great. Hope he recovers quickly.

                      FML. He wanted to go for a run when I took him out to potty tonight.

                          Hahaha there's a reason I call him my "bad Shark!" Not sure if he was wound up and still not feeling it, or if he just REALLY had to pee.

                              My trainer has this black Lab she shows in rally and OB. He is SUPER high drive (like 10x more than her other Lab) and when she gets him out to work, he dances in place. Reminds of the Lipizzaner stallions lol. I've always thought it was cool. After 2 solid days of crate rest, I discovered that Shark can dance even better than her Lab- he just looks more like a Lipizzaner! Anyway, he's doing wonderful. No issues with eating, other than being displeased with the tiny amounts of food he gets at once. I'm going chicken & rice for another day or two. Six meals a day, 1 cup of chicken with a little rice, and some broth over the top because he's not interested in water otherwise. Vet says that's fine as long as he's eating and getting some liquid for now. Tramadol has slowed down the digestive process, so while food is going in very little is coming out. He's up to every 12 hours between doses of tramadol instead of the 8 hours he was at yesterday, so she will probably have me cut that off soon. I'm planning to make him a snuffle mat today so when he gets back to kibble in a day or two he'll have something stationary to keep him busy. We've also been working a lot on his heeling, since everywhere he goes he is on leash right now. We are entered in our first trial next month, so every little bit of practice helps. His recall needs it most, but he loves to RUN to me, so of course we can't touch that for another 12 days!
