Shadow’s back home! And he is doing absolutely fine.

The vet was very impressed too. He was awake and wagging away when Mummy went to see him just 15 minutes after the surgery and then stood up and growled, albeit feebly, at the large doggy waiting outside within just 30 minutes.

Even on his way back home, he insisted on sitting up and pondering over the terrible state of the traffic. Daddy had a hard time trying to make him lie down.





We are being extra careful not to let him exert himself. Shadow seems to be in a hurry to get going.

Not only did he not forget to mark his favourite lamp-post but also pricked up his ears at the rustling in the usual squirrel hide-outs during his walk today evening! And this when he is still unsteady on his paws!!

We always heard Mixed Breed Indian Dogs are tough and extremely sturdy. Shadow proved it today. We are so proud of him.


He had some chicken soup in the evening and loads of water. He doesn’t seem to be in pain now and readily let Mummy dress the wound after he was back from his walk.

He is fast asleep now.

Very unlike him, of course. He herds us all every night and insists we settle down before him. Tonight after dinner, again some chicken but this time real meat and bones, he seemed too tired and sleepy to bother.

It is such a relief watching him sleeping peacefully. He has shown no interest in his wound site at all. So he gets to be without the terrible E-Collar. We don’t know about later, when he is back to his active self. But for now, he is settled into our warmest blanket on the cosiest bed WITHOUT THE COLLAR.

Me and Buddy are sleeping with Daddy tonight while Shadow sleeps with Mummy in the other room. We don’t like this arrangement at all. But then it is necessary. At least for tonight.

Sleep tight, Baby Boy. And heal soon and heal well.


We are so very Thankful and Grateful for all of you, Our Blog-Friends out there. Shadow would have said ‘Thankies’ for all your healing thoughts, we know. Only he is dreaming deep dreams right now. So we are saying it on his behalf.
