Welcome home Big Dog!!!! Mesa got home from MU on Saturday. He was SOOO happy to see us and to get home! His knee seems to be feeling better already. His incisions look really good. The entire MU vet school was great to work with. Dr. Cook was great. Mesa's vet student, Kayla, was great too. She called everyday with updates and endured two days of his whining!!

Can you believe the shaved drumstick??!!

Truman has been spending the last few days with cousin Oscar. It's been nice to give Mesa a chance to get settled in. Tru Tru will probably come home tomorrow. Mesa's biggest obstacle is going to be resting. So far, he's doing ok, but he's bored already. He's napping a lot (how is that different from his "normal" life??) but having trouble staying comfortable. He's also having to wear the e-collar quite a bit because he keeps licking his incision and I am NOT going to let that thing get infected!

Thanks to everyone who has been calling, texting and stopping by. Mesa's got lots of great people that care about him. We appreciate all of it!!!

Off to bed for now. More to report tomorrow!
