You never realize how much you love your dog until he's gone.  My dog Ike busted his leg up 2 weeks ago then had surgery and he still isn't home. We were advised not to visit either in order for the leg to heal around the plate’s better.  They don’t want him jumping around.  We got a picture of him yesterday looking out the window as if he was trying to understand why we abandoned him there. Dogs are the best and I can’t wait to get him home again.
