Trying to cheer myself up!
My avatar chewbacca had eye surgery for skin tags and hip xrays the week after I had my SCS surgery.

He has done so much better than I am :D the tags under his eyes are GONE and he looks so much better! The fur is growing in and he does not have goop in the corners of his eyes anymore! YAY! so glad we had this done for him!

He has one worn out arthritic hip and the opposite knee is worn out. But he is now taking Metformin daily and able to get around a bit better! the vet said he has several more treatment options before we have to consider the inevitable.

He will celebrate his 11 birthday on June 20th! So everyone wish chewy happy birthday!

He will be getting lots of treats I suspect! Maybe a trip to the Dairy queen for a vanilla icecream cone! he loves those! Eats them just like a kid! he licks the ice cream of while we hold the cone, then munches down the cone, one bite at a time!


  • Chewy is a beautiful dog! Glad to hear he is feeling better and looks good too! Don't you feel better every time you look at your little buddy? He's there by your side feeling better, thanks to you! I hope his meds continue to work too.

    I think you should take him to DQ for his favorite treat for his BD and as often as you can because he's your buddy and that's what buddy's do....enjoy time and treats together!

  • Glad to hear he's doing better! Sounds like he's going to have a great birthday!!! Hope he has many more!
