I just took Norris outside for a leash walk a minute ago to use the potty. He is doing SOOOOO wonderful!!!He even peed on the neighbors annoying min pins through the fence when they were yapping at him and trying to bite him (before i saw what he was doing)
it was great! (those dogs of our neighbors are soooo mean and yappy!)
I guess Norris told them what he thought of them
After all that excitement, we came back in the house where he got tons of treats and kisses.
He was doing soo well that i decided to snap a few pictures of him. (just a warning, some are a tinsy bit graphic as they are of the site where the amputation occured). Three legged or not, i think my sweet little Norris is just about as handsome as they get


my handsome boy!


he's soooooo cute!!


come here mum! i'm gonna kiss ya!


Kojak watching over Norris while he drinks


mmmm dinner! (he's finally got an appetite!!!)

handsome fella!

He looks great! I'm looking at the pics and thinking, are these really the post-amputation pictures? Looks like a happy, healthy guy! Love the bright eyes! Like the cat, checking to see if there's anything tasty for her, too!

Oops..the close-up pics of the site loaded up after I posted my comments ("are these really post-amputation pics?"), but I still think that his happy eyes show how strong his spirit must be and how much he must be loved!

Even though the amp site looks shocking, the surgical site looks clean and relatively "calm." I think Norris must have God on his side, and he's lucky to have you, too!

More healing vibes for a speedy recovery!

I definitely agree!
The surgical site looks good so far- no signs of any complications or issues.
The vet did a very good job! (and i agree- in the first pictures it was hard to tell he had had much amputated at all because he was soo energetic and spunky!) And i most definitely think he has some wonderful rainbow bridge furbabies watching over him
He is such a wonderful dog!!! Ahh i just love him to pieces!!
Can you tell i want to keep him?

By the look on his face you wouldn't know he just had major surgery. He's so happy and content looking

Honestly Natalie- i do not no as i am not familiar with all of our state laws/etc concerning stuff like this. i know a little bit, but not a ton. This is really up to my bosses (actually- their bosses and their bosses bosses....ya know- it's like a chain working for the city gov't. the animal shelter falls under the dpt. of public services). I really do hope something is done to punish her though.

Oh I missed the original thread about all this, so just checked back - what a to do
all I can say is 'what goes around - comes around' she'll get whats coming


But looking forward - Norris is looking so well, yes the wound area is still swollen but that is of course to be expected and with all your love and care will soon be looking tons better


He has a wonderful gentle looking face, what a brave soldier he has been

Give him some gentle tummy rubs from us

Heya, Tristan says you should adopt him, he's beautiful and you will love having him around, our lives changed alot from having Cleo and her blindness did not stop her from anything
he melted at the picture and i only just told him abut that stupid lady.

Those images are gorgeous, he looks like hes getting on really well considering what hes been through.

Thankyou for everyone who has kept Norris in your prayers and sent out those lovely TCS vibes and gifts to him. I truely think it has all helped!
Norris is doing EXCELLENT today!!!
He is trying to (key word trying- i had him on a leash
) run through the back yard like he's some sort of greyhound to play through the fence with the neighbors dogs
He even peed through the fence on the annoying little yappy ones again
(how aweful is that
) He just went for his walk a little while ago- and he's now back in the house- he had his breakfast and his medicine and is now playing with one of Fosters toys underneath the sofa (the legs let out). Fosters and Whiskey are in the bedroom sleeping with Colin- so i've had Norris out for a little bit. I won't let all three of them out together at the same time until Norris stitches come out just to be on the safe side. All of our doggies are bigger so i don't want any of them to play too rough. The swelling and redness has also gone down tremendously at the incision site and the surrounding areas!!!!!
That is always excellent news! I will take some new picuters of both Norris and Fancy (my foster kitten) later
Thankyou all who have kept up with little Norris story and prayed for him- those prayers have truely made a difference!
