Battendog is back from some surgery on his mouth earlier this morning. Minor surgery but involving a GA. He's home early because he was kicking up such a storm at the vets after he came round. In the words of the vet nurse he was "singing loudly, the song of his people".
He's currently lying at my feet, softly crying.
I know many dogs cry like this after a GA but is there anything more heartbreaking?
How on earth my parents coped with the (fairly significant) surgery I had as a child, I will never know.
