*Goodest boy Dodger Evans, the internet’s favorite celebrity pet, is stuck in the cone of shame as he recovers at home from hip replacement surgery.
*Dodger’s dad, actor Chris Evans, has been chronicling the lead up to Dodger’s surgery on Twitter:
*At the end of last week, Evans dropped the news that Dodger would be undergoing surgery by posting a picture of his pre-surgery haircut (not done by Chris fortunately):
He’s got his ‘summer surgery haircut’. Next week he’s getting a shiny new hip! It’ll be a long recovery but I have a feeling this champ is gonna cruise. pic.twitter.com/kUFs0FKlsb— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) July 15, 2020
*People were understandably confused—after all Dodger is only a few years old and isn’t hip replacement surgery for the olds? During a Q&A about his political website, Chris shared more detail about how Dodger’s rough pre-celebrity pet life had led him to needing the surgery:
*On the day of the surgery, Chris discovered he is someday going to be a helicopter parent when he has human children:
Surgery day! Just dropped him off. Picking him up tomorrow morning. 😬😬😬😬— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) July 23, 2020
If today is any indication, I’m going to be a VERY nervous parent. 😂 pic.twitter.com/960bwIkPYL
*The surgery was a success:
Dodger’s surgery was successful! He’ll now be enjoying some well deserved pain meds over the next few days. Thank you all for the well wishes and thank you to Dr. Trout and everyone at @MspcaAngell for taking such wonderful care of him!!— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) July 24, 2020
