I would skip going anywhere and no walks for at least a week, maybe two.
Even if he does feel better, he could get infected...do not chance it, IMHO.
Rumble says thank you for the kisses! He loves kisses...both receiving and giving. Well probably more giving than receiving! He is just such a lover some times. We are trying to keep him calm but he is just such a handful. We had never met the vet before his neuter and when Zach went to pick Rumble up they said Rumble acted like he was on crack when I brought him in that morning! Both Zach and I said "nope....that is just Rumble!" I always laugh when the local rescue uses an advertisement that says to adopt a couch potato. I think I may sue them for false advertising!
When I first saw the picture it broke my heart...then I looked again and I thought exactly what you said and that payback was going to be trouble. Luckily, he has been pretty good and except for one accident Friday night in his kennel we have not had any problems.
I am trying to keep him calm but that is easier said than done. Although we have noticed that in the mornings he tends to be sleepier this week than in the past. We will see how long that lasts before he is wide awake wanting to play at 6 A.M. every day.
When we took Tubby back for his recheck I was tempted to lie and say he was in pain to get some meds to calm him down!!! It's probably the hardest job ever to keep them calm! Hang in there it will be over soon
