I'm having a hard time letting him go even though I know it's the best decision. Fortunately he is going to convalesce with a really nice guy, who has a dog named Elroy. There is also a really nice couple who may be interested in adopting him post-surgery. I met the woman at Dog Day in the Park last night, and will meet with her husband when Doc gets back. They have talked and thought a lot already about having a dog with 3 legs, and seem ready for whatever challenges it might bring. Let's keep our fingers crossed!
With any luck the little guy will feel a lot better, and will go to a wonderful permanent family. He deserves all of that.
Here are a few more pictures of Doc pre-surgery, and one of Molly.
