Sweetheart is thrilled to be home.  She is doing fabulous with not licking the wound.  It is still closed and appears to be healing just fine.  There is no swelling or puffiness around the area, whew!

The best part of this to Sweetheart is that she has to take antibiotics for another 10 days or so and that means CHEESE!  Twice a day, morning and night.  She knows the drill and has it down pat!  I am glad she is greedy for cheese, makes giving her two pills twice a day a snap.

Hopefully she will be fully healed in a few weeks and since everyone is being muzzled now there shouldn't be any additional 'tooth' trauma.

Eve goes in for her spay this Friday.  I am interested to know how much she weighs now.  She has become a very happy and exhuberant girl.  Her puppy nature is starting to come through too. This is a good thing and sometimes a bad thing.  :)  She has chewed a few things but only when she is left alone and is bored.  She really is a good girl overall and lots of fun to foster.

Hope everyone is having a good week.  I am much happier with my Sweets back with me.

Jess and Sweetheart


  1. I still look for your posts on a regular basis, and I'm so happy that Sweets is home!!! We have cheese greedy hounds here, and I agree...makes it much easier to give pills. Good thoughts for continued recovery, and for Eve to some through her spay without a hitch.


  2. Yay! Good news. So glad she likes cheese. My hounds have figured out that cheese=medicine. I need to find an alternative since both of my dogs take meds twice daily!

  3. Have you tried the Greenies Pill Pockets? They work good if you don't handle them with the hand you handle the pill with. They are greasy and strong smelling!

  4. Eve getting spayed - that was quick! She must be filling in nicely.

    We need pictures of both!!!

  5. Glad Sweetheart is enjoying the cheese:)

    Hope Eva get's on ok.

  6. Aw, I'm glad Sweets is OK. You think she'll have a scar? Eve is so cute... looking forward to more pics of her. Hope her spay goes well.
