    I'm so glad he's doing well, and his surgery is holding!

    Oh no! :( That's not good at all. What are the options for poor Tuff?

    ~ Not sure, we are going to consult with the vet again and see what he recommends. His condition / circumstances are very rare, unique and evidently complex.

    I just finally got up to speed with Tuff's story. So sorry to hear the surgery didn't work. I wish you guys and Tuff the best of luck.
