    Thank goodness my lovely boy seems to be getting better at last.

    He had an op for a luxating patella in February but unfortunately (and even though he was confined at the time) the bone became detached.

    He had a further op on Monday last week and came home two days later. I have to say, he's been so well behaved in confinement although he's wanted to go out in the garden as the weather's been so nice.

    Also, every day his leg is better and now he is putting almost the usual weight on it (except when he's been laying down and needs to stretch it out first!) The stitches are coming out on Monday so at least the 'cone of shame' can come off then.

    I'm really looking forward to being able to go for walks with him again and I know he misses his friends (basically any dog or human he meets!!) :thumbup1:
