|GsdLoverr729||Minimum two weeks for recovery. So it's a fairly long road. But I have high hopes right now, considering the progress he's already made. And he never stopped responding to me. The little bugger gets so excited when I talk to/pet/hold him.|

|TrickyShepherd||It'll definitely take some time to recover, but at least he's responding well to you! Glad to hear he's doing ok.|

|GsdLoverr729||Lol! I don't think his pride is hurt at all. He still thinks he's a stud.|

`Glad to hear he has some puppy pep back in his step!
I'm sure it'll all be distant memory for him in a few days even! I know what you mean about the nervous energy we must put out. River is Leash Reactive/nervous around other dogs, so of course when I see other dogs, I start to tense up. Probably mostly my fault!
Arch is still too dang cute! Even if he has a battle wound, it'll be his with pride!

Gayle- Thank you. As upset as we all are that it happened, we were EXTREMELY lucky. The bite came very close to the eyes, his brain... And his jaw could have been severely damaged. We were lucky...
Apple- Thank you!
Shanna- Not sure... But worth checking into.
Buckeye- Thank you... He'll be stuck in the cone of shame AT LEAST 10 days. He can't have it off until the staples are removed.
Krystal- It's crazy you said that! I called him Frankenpuppy at work this morning and my coworker said, "NO. Frankie. He is FRANKIEpuppy." LOL!!
Gwen- Thank you! It's nice to hear a story where everything worked out well! I know part of it will be ME getting over it. I can't put out the energy telling him I'm nervous when he's with other dogs. Today he did end up wandering over to my boss's dog in her office (I only allowed him in there because it is a very laidback, elderly dog). He gave her some kisses when she sniffed his nose and they cuddled the whole shift.
Oisin- Thank you! I am trying to be level-headed, particularly since it WAS an accident. And thinking of how much worse it could be. Everyone on here is helping a ton as well, the good thoughts are keeping me from losing it even worse lol!
Tricky- Thank you for checking in on him! It means a lot. He is very fussy today, his face was VERY swollen when he woke up this morning. Sleeping most of the time rather than playing with me, but he has been "talking." He was also able to take his meds in some cheese, which is a definite improvement. And we got some wet food into him. Now he's contently napping beside me.
Amy- Thank you. My boss is amazing. I actually JUST started working at this animal hospital last week and everyone is so kind! And understanding!!! I'm a lucky young woman.
Fly- Thank you! He did bounce a bit when he saw the cheese I got for him.
Berleen- Oh yes. He played up to all my coworker's phone cameras during his short periods of being awake today.

Scary! That has always been my worst fear... one of my dogs getting attacked. I hope he bounces back from this like it never happened.
Cones of shame are sad, but they sure make for some cute pictures!

|FlyAway||Poor baby! I hope he heals soon and is bouncing around like a happy baby.|
|08-27-2013 03:28 PM|
Poor little guy! Feel better soon Acheron
Hopefully all will heal with minimal scarring. You're not a bad mom. Things happen, and you can't beat yourself up. That's nice your boss is letting you bring him in, though.

|TrickyShepherd||Hey Kymmey, how's the little guy doing today? Just wanted to stop by quickly and check on him. Hope he's recovering well!|
|08-27-2013 01:05 PM|
Aww , poor little boo! He is beautiful <3 Brought tears to my eyes to see him with his cone on .
Just want to say you have a great attitude both about your dogs and how you are handling this incident
