Today is Callie's 5th day of recovery and also the day we can start switch her to more solid canned dog food. She has been eating mushed up watered down canned dog food since the surgery. She gets fed frequently to just make it so she doesn't eat a lot at once and cause pressure on her intestine. So far today I've been slowly increasing the size of the bites (they are small chunks now) and by mid next week we may even start mixing in Kibble.
Everyday Callie has just seemed to get better and better. It makes me happy to see her perk up more and more. When we brought her home on Wednesday she mostly just slept. Yesterday she jumped on the couch and it pulled on her incision and she was hurting for a bit. This morning she started herding my parents and even ran a bit. She is still cautious and slow, but I do have to keep a close eye on her so she doesn't try and jump on the couch again. And she has been good with not trying to lick. Yesterday after the whole couch incident she did lick some so we put a shirt on her and then she gave up.

Luckily we have made it this far and I hope things just keep on getting better! Thanks again for all the support it really did help me get through the worst of all this.

Keep up the good work Callie, and no more jumping! I love the bit about herding your parents, you have your work cut out for you to keep her quiet.
