It was over 11 weeks and a lifetime ago that Turk became a chew toy for a moment. After two major surgeries, lots of scheduled and emergency vet appointments,

and a minor surgery two weeks ago that resulted in this latest set of stitches, it looks like we have him all closed up. There are some issues that are likely permanent, but the incision is healed for which we are very thankful.

Today was the day to get the stitches out.

The shirt is gone, and he's happy to be chasing the ground squirrel in the wood pile. He has a speed bump because the skin behind the incision doesn't slide like it should, but it doesn't seem to bother him. We're just glad to have our buddy enjoying life with us.


  1. I know you're as happy as he is. Glad the ordeal is over for you. Have fun on your upcoming river trip.

    1. Really glad to be done with the dog challenges and really looking forward to time on the river!

  2. I am so happy that little Turk is over the infection! What great news that he's back to chasing ground squirrels!

    1. Pretty sure he's going to be even more cautious around other animals. BTW I'm glad to see you're planning additions to your herd!

  4. Happy for the three of you....he is such a precious little fellow!

    Hope he gets to play and play...making up for all the lost time.

    Have fun on the river!

  5. I think Turk is glad to be done with all the poking and prodding! I'm really looking forward to the river!
