    Better to light a candle for one lost dog than to curse the darkness of man's indifference. Saving just one dog won't change the world but it surely will change the world for that one dog.

    How's things? Coco is so pretty, her coat is very shiny, what do you shampoo with?

    I'm so glad that Coco is doing better, I got worried when you said that she was in pain. Give her sweet little face a smooch for me!

    That's so true, Claire. I can't believe how much pain she must be going through after major abdominal surgery. At least when we go through surgery, we can reach for painkillers. These little guys suffer silently. I wish I could take the pain from her!

    Coco is doing much better. She's definetly getting back to her normal self. Thanks for your concern. Coco sends you all a big hug!

    Pauline, I use a Biogroom shampoo on her. It's a tearless, perfume free, and hypoallergenic one. I got it for her before she came from the breeders. It's been great, no dryness or anything. I had read about Chris Christensen, Pet Silk, and Biogroom shampoos/conditioners from various breeders that show dogs, so I wanted to get Coco one of those. I happen to find Biogroom in a doggie shop, so I went with it!

    I'm glad to hear Coco is doing well.

    Surprised the vet didn't send some pain meds home with her though.

    I just thought I'd let you all know how Coco is doing. She wasn't doing anything yesterday but lying down (the day after surgery). She looked really miserable. I tried to encourage her to move a little or play, but she wasn't interested.

    At 11:30pm, she went out for her last potty and she FINALLY went #2!!! I was getting worried that she was constipated and uncomfortable. She hadn't gone since before the surgery. When she came back in, her tail was wagging and she was moving around much more! Yayy!

    Today she is willing to move around a bit more and she showed some interest in her toys. I'm happy to see any recovery, even if it's slow.
    Thanks again everyone!

    Our vets usually give us a two day supply of pain killers. I am surprised they didn't send you home with something.

    I am behind reading posts, too many wake ups with Kodee I think. But I am glad all went well. I would have thought they would give some sort of pain med for a day at home. Poor Coco! But all is well now
