Daisey did well in the surgery. Poor girl is stuck in a cone for the next 10 days. She looks like she's got long eye lashes on her face because of the stitches.

She's adapting to the cone okay. It took her 2 or 3 days to figure out how to eat out of a bowl, we were scattering her food on to the floor for her the pick it up, and she has yet to master the technique of drinking water without tipping the bowl after she is done. Daisey was back to her old rambunctious self by Sunday, running around in the yard (supervised, of course) and scooping up snow into her cone (not on purpose, of course). She has also tried to bite Milo on the back of his leg (a favorite pasttime of hers) on more than one occassion, even though she's not doing that all that well right now.

We spent the weekend at home cuddling with Daisey. Daisey is not normally a cuddly girl but likes to be in the same room with the people she loves. But this weekend, there has been LOTS of cuddling. I have never had her ask me to carry her so many times and never had her crawl into my lap when I've sitting on the floor or on the couch.

I can't wait for her to get her stitches out. She'll be so happy when her head is no longer in that cone thing...


  1. Awww...Napoleon and I hope that Daisy has a speedy recovery. I felt bad when Napoleon had to wear his cone for 10 days, too. On the Vet bill, they call it a Elizabethan collar. Lol.

    I am glad that Daisy's surgery went well. It's so hard when one of loved ones has to go in for surgery. I was a wreck when Napoleon went in for his neutering and pulling 2 teeth, and I was only able to calm down after the Vet called to tell me the surgery went well.

  2. I am glad to see that Daisey is doing well. When Zoe was spayed she did not have to wear the collar and she had a ton done to her. Microchip, 9 teeth...but she too was cuddly, for that night. Is that a Pug trait? Wanting to be in the same room, but don't pet me/cuddle. I love reading your blog and hearing about the Puggies. We are planning on getting another one once Zoe ages a bit (she is only 7 months). Until then I look forward to seeing Milo and Daisey.

  3. Came across your blog from Purling Puppy. Poor Daisey! My pup Kona had her second knee surgery last Thurs. She's doing better now, but still not herself. Speedy recovery to Daisey!
