Brotherly Love

Otto and Miles went in for their neuters August 23rd at 19.5 months. We waited as long as possible but we had to have them neutered before they can get their AKC ILPs. Lure coursing starts in September and we have to have them registered before we can enter them.

I got to stay with them both during the entire surgery. It was pretty interesting. Miles went first and recovered on the floor on blankets while Otto had his surgery. After both were awake they put us all in a room while the boys finished waking up. Since Miles had surgery first he was ahead of Otto in waking up and was pretty concerned about his brother. Even though he was having trouble holding his own head up he carefully checked out his brother Otto. It was so sweet I had to take a video of it.

After Otto woke up he scooted himself over so he could check out Miles. They both could barely hold up their heads but the urge to play got the better of them. What sweet loving brothers! 
Miles recovered nicely. Ottos family says he has too. Miles slept most of the day today and was pretty mellow but hopped around happily this afternoon. No running for awhile. He blew a few pads running last week so hasn't been able to run for over a week now and now needs to wait another week. Not a good thing for a puppy.

They are so cute! Glad they recovered well and I hope Miles' pads heal quickly.
