Homer basset didn’t have surgery last week. Considered to be “non-surgical” due to the other spinal issues he has, we brought him home and with medication, there has been limited improvement.
It’s surprising to me how much life changes in just a few days – we carry Homer up and down the stairs and watch him totter across the back yard, doing his “business” with the other dogs. His positive demeanor has returned and he is pain-free. At times, it feels we’re living with an infant, which is different for us and all the while Homer continues to be his warm, loving and happy self. For this I am grateful. We are enjoying his presence, his companionship and have to laugh at his ability to be so very joyful as his physical limitations increase. This is a quality I’d like to possess.
He is a good friend and we are happy he is here.
