Well, it's been quite a while since I last posted about Remy. Just this past week we finally neutered him now that we have his Addision's under control. While being neutered, the vet recommended stomach and intestinal biopsies as well as a gastropexy. The gastropexy is a procedure where the stomach is sewed to the abdomen to prevent torsion during a possible bloat episode.
Remy has a pretty nice incision which is held together with some painful looking staples. He was really out of if (as expected) after I picked him up from surgery due to the morphine they injected him with. He couldn't walk straight, it was so sad, but I couldn't help to chuckle a bit. His brain knew what he wanted to do, but his body just wouldn't cooperate. The next morning he was still wobbly, but doing better. As of today, he is feeling pretty darn good, he is wanting to play, which is a concern to me because I don't want him ripping those staples out.
His staples come out next week, so hopefully we will make it through without incident. He is a tough spirit to contain. I am continually amazed by his ability to bounce back with everything he has been through.
Remy loves eating blackberries, he is obsessed! If we let him, he would sit outside and pick off all the rip berries and enjoy them all himself. I've never seen a dog actually pick out the best berries, maybe I'm just sheltered.
This is a fun video of Remy and Bella playing. Bella is a Belgian Malinois, which is a type of Belgian Shepherd. She is about 10 years old in this video, and she still acts like a 4 year old!
...big dog? This isn't always an accurate predictor of how big the dog will be. It can be used to judge in general, based on the ankle bone size, but many times, the puppy's overall bone structure will indicate the same thing the feet do.
Remy had huge goofy paws as a puppy, and big fat ankles that he flopped around everywhere. My favorite thing about puppy feet are the soft pads, although, I don't miss those razor sharp nails!
I'll put up a video of his goofy running in the next post!
Remy's ears are up....with some help! I love his face in this photo, it's like he is saying "Eh, you talkin' to me? Are you. Talkin' to me?" Sorry, movie quote diversion. Speaking of, what movie is that from anyway? Well this post just went to hell in a handbasket, I think I'll call this one complete!
Well, we weren't quite dancing in the rain, more like walking. It started off a hot and humid spring (I remember it being more like summer) day but quickly turned into a massive rain storm. It had basically rained everyday since we had gotten Remy so it wasn't anything new to him. At first he ran around happy as could be but as the rain continued he went from normal Remy to...
Sad water logged Remy!! He was so cute, but so sad!
