Three Weeks

It’s now 3 weeks to the day since Diesel had his leg amputated. He still has 4 stitches in, but they hopefully won’t be around long. His fur is growing back, he now manages stairs with aplomb, and even comes to the kitchen BEFORE Larky to start begging for breakfast/dinner (they have biscuits down all day with wet food at 7am/pm). He’s started playing a bit again, and yesterday sat up against the back door until I opened it. He went out, into the snow, followed by Larky. A few minutes later I went to check on them and found him standing in a flowerpot, eating snow… things are starting to return to normal, but he’s still a bit stand-offish when it comes to coming to us. We have to approach him a bit more carefully, and gain his trust before he lets us stroke him, but we’re getting there.

And, it’s SO much better than watching him limp and fearing he may be in pain.
