gid, thanks for the update. Your pup has been on my mind. I spoke to my vet tech friend and shared the story. She told me more than likely your dog will want to do a little more than he should on his injured leg in the beginning. Glad to hear the sling is in effect. I am sure his brother will be glad to see him back. Take it easy. The next couple of weeks will be hard work, but worth it and then he will be off to a good doggie life. Glad you opted for the surgery and pray it was the right thing for you and him.
