Free at last! (vito surgery update)

The muzzle is off!  After 16 long days of wearing the muzzle almost all day so he couldn't play with toys, eat bones, wrestle with dogs, ferrets, or kitty, Vito is free!  At our recheck the vet said things are heeling nicely even though some stitches were pulled out (likely by his tounge).  It's still not perfect but since Vito's been so depressed the last two weeks the vet didn't want his anxiety getting worse.  She granted us permission to have the muzzle off and allow some light play.  Vito can wrestle with the other animals and hold soft toys in his mouth but he still can't play tug, have bones, balls, or any hard toy.  He is very very happy :)  Back to his crazy and wild self!

Thank goodness. Vito must have been going cracker dog. I think Lance is soft enough to bite.

Wow... I have fallen way behind because I missed the whole surgery thing but just read about it. What an ordeal it has been for poor Vito. I am glad it is almost over and going ok.
Hang in there Vito you will be tuggin again in no time!
p.s. we have never heard of doggie braces but agree he would have been teased mercilessly at the dog park!
