Actually Tierce has been running around without a cone for a week now and his incision is healing up nicely. He spentlast weekend at his breeders’ while Mischa and I went to a SCA event (no dogs allowed on site… boo…). Playing with his sister left him nicely relaxed. Apparently she has been driving their mother batty with her PLAYPLAYPLAYPLAYPLAY approach, so having someone who was ready and willing to keep up to her was just what she needed. Plus, since she was out of heat and Tierce is now neutered, we did not have to worry about the conception of incest Shiba puppies… just what the world DOESN’T need. They’re crazy enough!
