Birthdays and Surgery

Far Guy had his oral surgery yesterday, his last wisdom tooth and a fistula were removed.  He feels like crap.  He rests when the pain lets him.  I suspect it will be a slow recovery and I am hoping that he doesn’t suffer with a dry socket this time.

Chance had a pretty good birthday, he went for two rides and played ball several times.  We took another birthday photo.  The wind was blowing and someone was shooting ducks down on the river both things tend to make a Border Collie nervous.Chance Nine Years old

I captured him doing one of his favorite things.

We left Far Guy home to rest when we went for our late afternoon drive.

Happy Birthday to my other baby brother today!  He is getting pretty old.

Here he is propped up on the couch when he was about 2 months old in 1960.

  17. Your brother looks like a beautiful baby doll - - - and he is still young! I worried about Far Guy when I saw your previous post about his upcoming surgery. I will try and keep him in extra prayer. It's hard for him to suffer and difficult for you to watch and not be able to change things for him.

  18. Awww - happy birthdays all round! And a big hug to Far Guy - hope he recovers soon.

  19. I hope FarGuy is doing well.
    Funny how Chance doesn't like a windy day but loves the wind from a car window--LOL! ;)
    Your brother looks almost like a big baby doll I had when I was little.
