Hello, there! We are now four weeks post surgery and it seems Wally is doing beautifully, but the surgery vet will be the one to judge when Wally has his radiograph and exam at eight weeks. In the photo below, Wally and LuLu are getting ready to go for a walk. No, Wally is not being impolite. That's his security spot. I think he associates putting his harness on with going to the vet. He hates going to the vet. LuLu loves her harness and all that's associated with it, including going to the vet. Here she's being sympathetic with Wally's feelings.
Wally is supposed to go for three to five 10 minute leash walks per day. We judge how many walks he takes by how much time he's spent that day walking around the yard. When we're outside, Wally and LuLu are outside following us everywhere.
Once we're out walking, Wally is perfectly happy with it. We could tell they were getting bored with the same old walk, though, so now at least once a day we drive to a different spot for our walk. New smells, new excitement. Even though the walks are only 10 minutes, it sometimes seems like we're constantly out walking the dogs.
Just thought I'd share this photo, too. We don't see a praying mantis here very often. He/she would be a marvel of camouflage on a leafy plant, but here on the back of the house... not so much.
