Hope her recovery is quick.
Tough on animals, we can't explain the procedure or how its going to be better soon to them.
Good she has a master who cares for her.

That's quite the hair style. I hope they did the other side the same.

Ouch,,it is a common injury on large dogs and if dog is fat its high risk. Kara appears normal weight for her age so obviously still playing hard.  Fortunately dogs have the ability to hobble around on 3 legs when need be.  

Definitely a "I love my dog" repair.

Looks like she is real comfortable on her thick bed.  A dogs loyalty is not found any other place I don't think.  But then I am prejudice. Have a 7 yo Party Pom in the house and a 5 month old 1/2 Pyrenees, 1/4 Anatolian Shepard and 1/4 Akbash that is with the Pygmy goats and cats in the small barn.   Guard dog from the word go. Loves attention and starts talking when ever he sees us outside.  His hearing and eye sight is unbelievable keen.

Nice to see she's not wearing the big collar. IMO they cause more problems than they prevent, and if she isn't licking at/bothering the incision it means she's not in too much pain and the operation was a success. Will she be doing physiotherapy? My friend's lab had the same operation, she did the exercises with her faithfully and the dog is fully recovered and in fine shape now, three years post op.

Hi All thanks for your comments

Update is as follows

Went to vets for check up  he is happy with her progress, wound is healing and she is weight bearing the wires must have gotten crossed somewhere as her tail has never stopped wagging .good sign of a job well done.
