    He is totally fine, my bully has some brusing from the procedure, but Ricky is great. Other than the ecollar. He HATES that thing. But if I take it off he immediately starts to lick the incision. He is doing great.

    So he destroyed the cone, but I bought some bitter spray and it is working. He (ricky) is healing very nicely, my bully is not. Minor complications but I worry.

    They are getting along MUCH better now, even to the point of sharing toys and treats. Ricky is allowed to play in the yard leash free under close supervision now too. With no ecollar, just a squeeker to grab his attention. He is doing very well :)

    He is also SUCH a charmer. I took him to Academy sports and PetSmart with me today, since he killed his cone and I couldnt leave him alone because he licks.

    Haha, ball-less made me giggle perhaps more than I should have! Ah, Christmas has stopped me from getting online everyday to check for updates. Anyone else excited for the holiday? Is your bully doing better today, by the way? But yay for the small favors! We all knew Ricky would charm him sooner or later ;)

    LOL poor cone never stood a chance! Iím assuming everybody loved him?

    We already had our little Christmas (Me, hubby, pets) because today/tomorrow will be so hectic. And we want to enjoy our time together. Ricky is obsessed with de-squeakering every toy that he got lol! But after he gets it out he plays well with them. He is back to himself, already see major changes in him though, the vet said it takes a full 30 days for the testosterone to dissipate, but NO MORE MARKING INSIDE He has not marked in my house since the surgery, havent even had to correct him!

    My bully is not doing as well recovering, Vet said because he is so large and the "parts" were so large, we can expect a couple of weeks longer for recovery, but he is doing OK. He goes back to the vet Thursday for a check up.

    I just have to say, I love my boys. Ricky is so good with my small pets too (I have a bird and rabbit inside).

    Don’t I know it about the squeaky toys! I avoided giving them to him if I could, since he would squeak them to death then try to eat ’em :’) I told you about the pig ears he liked though, right? I kept having to replace them! Did he eat the bone, too?

    OH, THERE IT IS. Those dots on the left of his nose kill me with cuteness. I seriously can’t thank you enough for taking him in, honestly. If I could even begin to express how much it means, then this would turn into an essay.

    Just wanted to update everyone that Ricky is doing fantastic. He and my pitbull are now joined at the hip and absolutely refuse to do anything without each other. He is just a perfect dog. We let him out to run/hunt at the very least 3 times a week. He doesnt go far and comes back quickly unless my husband goes out with the gun then they are gone for hours!! He is working with him to fine tune his squirrel hunting skills :)

    He has also turned out to be quite the ratter in my rabbit barn!! And his DNA test showed him as 50% purebred Russels Terrier and 50% mutt

    So glad Ricky got a wonderful home where he is no longer a problem & is having a very wonderful life now. Thanks for the update. Sounds like he is a happy member of your family.
