Day 17

Okay..... so I have read and re-read the instructions on Eli's post-surgery care, and have also done some research online. I have come to the conclusion that I am going to take the more liberal rehab route and start walking him... 2 ten minute walks a day. Unfortunately, Eli is not all that food motivated (which leads me to question if he is, in fact, a real dog) so getting him focused on treat dispensing toys is impossible, no matter what I put in them. After two full weeks home with little physical activity (this applies to both Eli AND myself) we are loving any opportunity to get outside to enjoy this beautiful January Florida weather. His stiches came out on Day 10, so no more E-collar for him.
More later....
