    So George was back for his second check up. The vet is delighted with his progress and the wound has healed up very well. He removed the small bits of scab that were left and I think that has helped George as regards how he's feeling as he has been a little more sociable since we got home. I did mention that the dog seemed to be feeling down and he was concerned and he did blood tests for animea and some other probable causes but they came back perfect. So I'm thinking it was the scabs on the wound that were annoying him and he must have thought they were something stuck on him or something.
    So it onwards and upwards for him now I hope and we are starting some training classes next week so that should help with his socialisation and maybe his small bit of aggression then we will have Mr. Perfect 😜 Either way we love him.

    Thanks again to everyone for all your thoughts and prayers they seem to be working as George is very nearly back to normal spending a lot more time out of his crate when we are home now. He still defaults to his crate (which he never did) when he feels a bit off but that is probably a good thing and he seems to have learned that when he needs time out that's where he gets it and I've been hoping he would do that all along so maybe every cloud has a silver lining ��-image-jpeg

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    He was happy thank you, needless to say the sausages are no longer linked and there is only one remaining sausage ��

    Yes they are gone he's quite good though he doesn't really swallow much he just chomps it up and spits it out. I usually manage to pick it all up.

    he is looking good! I actually love that he goes to his crate for downtime.... my first two did this and we called it 'safe zone'. Whenever they placed themselves in the crate we did not touch or bother them.

    I'm going to tag Henny and Cheryl for there insight on how their babies recovered too
    It's possible he has some phantom feelings. This is common in amputee patients and could be spurring his activity. Give him time like BullyMama shared.

    Thank you he has come back to life again now thankfully.
    I wasn't ruling out phantom pain or feelings he might be having, and I did mention it to the vet and he explained how they test for nerve pain and assured me that animals don't suffer from it, he gave quite a detailed explination so I'm fairly convinced he wasn't fobbing me off, but then they are animals so we will probably never really know for sure.
