Biggie's pretty much recovered from his surgery and he's as playful as ever. It's good to have a dog puppy as pain tolerant as he is because he didn't have to wear the cone much at all. In fact, by Day 2 he'd figured out how to take it off and to reach his nether regions anyway, so the e-collar was pretty much a lost cause. We also tried the "bite-not" which freaked him out less, but he figured out how to get around that one too.
We tend to forget that at 9 months old there is still a lot of puppy left in him. Here he is 1 week post-op:
And here's the first video we ever took of him, the night he came home:
