Trooper wears a t-shirt a lot so you tend to think he is better than he really is, the wounds are still horrible looking. At the end of the week, the stainless steel stitches will come out he has almost a 100 of them, OUCH!! You can tell by the picture of his face that he is starting to feel better. Kathy says that the eyes are looking better & he wags his tail more! Trooper seems to really enjoy the company of her husband & son. Also, Kathy says that he is still often afraid but is coming around really well & that he tires out really easy.
