Watching Mylo continue his recovery over the last couple weeks has been very exciting! Everyday we notice that his stamina on walks is getting better, his playfulness is increasing, and he is adapting more and more to life with three legs.
Last week we removed his stitches, which went very smoothly. Now all he has is about a 2 inch long scab on one part of the old incision- which doesn’t seem to be bothering him because he isn’t scratching at it anymore. He also had his last day of pain killers today, which I think he is completely ready for.
We took Mylo and his brothers up to Michigan this past week, where he was able to let loose on the beach! Before we could stop him he was running straight into the water, he is fearless! His Portuguese Water Dog was definitely showing- he couldn’t get enough of playing in the waves. We kept his T-Shirt on to avoid getting sand in his scabs and wiped down the incision after each beach outing to keep it nice and clean. We love seeing him truly enjoying his new life.
