We are at the vet.  Leo had 2 sutures that had untied over the last 13 days that the vet was able just to rub out...didn't even have to tug.

Dr. Gayln explained that the little red/blood area on Leo's eye is just from where a suture was and is nothing to worry about.  She was able to touch and rub the area and Leo seemed perfectly fine and had no pain.

We got home and I tried to take a couple of more photos...in this one Leo is doing his snarly kisses at Doc because Doc decided the best thing to do was sniff Leo's nether regions and Leo wanted nothing to do with it.

As you can see, today was the big day, we went to the vet and had the sutures removed!  Leo did wonderful.  Leo loves his vet and all of the staff not only because they treat his so well and with so much kindness, but because they give him super yummy nom noms 🙂  Oh, and he enjoys being told how handsome he is.  Dr. Gayln Snair, Leo’s wonderful vet, was very impressed with how well Leo is healing.  She rubbed, pressed and petted the area and Leo didn’t show any signs of pain or discomfort.  Dr. Gayln explained that we need to give Leo another full week of healing and then he will be good to go and play like a crazy dog again…we are going to be very careful with Leo’s rough playing because we need to make sure the eye he has left is safe and fully functional for many more years (the rest of his life).
