Day two brought marked improvement in Annie's behavior. Alert with more energy and steadier on her feet, she showed a bit more interest in food. Her muzzle was so swollen Artie remarked at her resemblance to Spuds MacKenzie from the old Bud Light beer commercials.

Meals for the next three weeks will be soft food mixed with some canned pumpkin and yogurt to prevent diarrhea. I'm hoping to have her back on her regular diet after the post-surgery checkup. By evening Annie wanted to go for her walk and showed more interest in food. My guess is we are on the road to recovery.

The morning after surgery.

You can see the swelling on the left side of the photo.

Mid-afternoon and the swelling is more pronounced.

Evening and the swelling has reached an all-time high.

In a deep sleep in spite of it all.
