Took today as a rest day. Cooper is not wanting to walk, so that makes it easier to just sit and relax. I ended up carrying him for about a mile on our morning walk. I was dragging him along and he popped out of his collar, but he is a good pup and just laid down in the grass until I could get it back on him. Of course he didn't want to walk, so laying down was what he wanted to do anyways.
So, what did I do on this steamy Sunday? I went and talked to my SIL and her mother and set up a party for my oldest brother and myself. Our birthdays are only 5 days apart, so we are combining the parties this year. Everyone's schedules are busy this summer, so there wasn't room for two parties. Other than that I have mostly sat in front of the fan in the recliner, reading. Cooper is laid out flat on the floor doing his "dead dog" impression. He isn't twitching a muscle.
Cooper gets his stitches out tomorrow afternoon. He already pulled one out and ate it. Dopey puppy! I stopped the painkillers as he seems to be moving just fine, and he only has a couple days of antibiotics left. He seems to be doing better than I expected, though he still doesn't want to walk down the street where he was attacked. I can't blame him.
I will get back into the swing of things tomorrow and go for a run.
