    Great update! Yeayyy to no more cone!

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Ok so Abbott had to get a shot to calm him some and alittle gas so they could remove his stitches.He still has the cone for a few more days because it's tender and he was pawing at them.The vet said his left eye may not be where it's suppose to..Sigh..so we take him back in 2 weeks for a follow up.He is eating and doing well and wants lots of attention Him and Wheezie were resting at the vets.. -uploadfromtaptalk1450205680771-jpeg-uploadfromtaptalk1450205718561-jpeg
