I thought i'd start doing this just so i can post about Benjis improvement after his surgery.
For those of you who don't know, Benji had surgery on his back left leg on Wednesday because he had a luxating patella.
The surgery went well and we bought him home at about half four that evening. Of course he was very dazed and sleepy from the anesthetic and his pain killers. For a while that evening, he just lay on the floor trying to move but he couldn't quite
We took Benji over to meet my cousins two dogs yesterday and they're just a little bigger than Benji. Storm is a collie and Echo is a lab so they both kind of tower over my baby.
Simply put, Benji was pretty freaking terrified of both of them. They are both really nice & gentle dogs. Echo wanted to play with Benji whilst Storm kept growling at him, at one point even snapping at him when he tried to sniff her.

It's been a while since i did one of these because well everything has been a bit up in the air lately. But as things are calming down i thought i'd come and tell you about my little Benji baby.
Well for starters he turned 10 months old yesterday.
However, recently he's been having trouble with his back legs (mainly the back left leg). After a course of anti-inflammatory meds from the vets he seemed okay for a day or two before his left
