Day-Z has improved so much the last two days. If I look past the not being able to sleep at night because she hits me in the face with her cone, the fact that I have to put bologna in her water dish to trick her into drinking water so she stays hydrated (don't most dogs love to drink water?), and 30 minute wrestles to get her daily eye drop in her eye, I'd say she is closer to being back to her normal self. She longs to run outside and play with her neighborhood animal friends, to jump and play, and do her really big yawns. However, she needs to stay calm so she doesn't rip out her stitches and to avoid infection. She is great at giving kisses, cuddling, and just being her super happy dog self already.
