We went to the vet and they took off all his stitches, so he’s now out of the plastic cone!  Woo hoo!  He is one happy dog.  He came home and doodle dashed all over the back garden.  It was cute.  He’s also now licking himself like mad…I think he has 3-1/2 weeks to make up for not licking.  So he does have a small chuck of his ear that he’s missing, but that doesn’t matter at all.  So here’s a quick shot I took of his ear while trying to make him stand still (very difficult right now):

It’s still icky looking, but believe me, it’s a lot better than before.  So now we have to trim his other ear so that the fur will look similar (he looks a bit lopsided at the moment). 

I’m taking him to the park today to meet up with his walking pack…that way he can start again with Dima perhaps even tomorrow!
