Today was Nell's first day back on the job since having surgery. It has been a long three weeks and three days since the operation to remove a tumor from her right rear leg. The first set back was when she opened up the incision and had to be put back under to have it restitched. From that time, until the stitches were removed, she wore a cone-shaped collar so she couldn't lick or bite the incision. For a young thirteen year old, I think she is doing wonderfully!
Every day, when I go walking, Nell has pleaded, with all of her doggy charms, to be allowed to go too. So, because today was much cooler, and much to her delight and to mine, I allowed her to go.
