It was a long night though. I don't think he is bothered by the surgery but he most definitely IS bothered by the cone. The kitchen didn't work much better than the crate because when he got up to...

My Max is 4 1/2 months old and always acts like he is starving as well (but he isn't). I agree with the others on the good quality food. I think they probably need to eat less of it as well.
