And Frankenpooch is home :)

The dog, now nicknamed Frankenpooch, is home. Considering the sewn-shut eye, redness, swelling (all typical of surgery), he seems to be doing fine. He's sleeping a lot, but that's okay too as he's on some painkillers. He's got a good appetite, and he hates the cone of shame, nickname for the plastic e-collar he must wear. He looks like a zombie dog, due to all the shaved-off hair and surgical stuff. For those curious and who are not easily squicked by post surgical shots, a photo of him in the e-collar can be viewed here

The cat has sniffed him up and is glad he's home, and so far doesn't mind being locked up downstairs during the day because I just don't want the two mixing up and getting into trouble - like dog wedging head somewhere ;)  And he's gotta wear that collar for at least 12 days till stitches are out.

Fortunately it's raining outside and dog does not like rain, so he'll stay inside more.
