The Happy Dance of Joy

I just shared these on Facebook, but thought you would all like to see them...

Poor Sam had to wear the cone collar while we were gone.  He does really well with a t-shirt on, but we want to make sure he doesn't do anything that will make his recovery longer...

...and boy, does he know how to celebrate once that collar comes off!
I love his happy grin.
Which turns very serious when he attempts a complex maneuver...
....with his little tongue poking out!

Oh, you were taking pictures?
I'm pretty sure he got all the itchy spots!

Update:  We brought Sam to the vet last night for a re-check.  His stitches are all looking good.  The seeping has stopped on the one set, and we are schedule for having them all removed on November 1st.  We sure hope Sam will be a good boy till then.
