Wow, it has been a whole month since I wrote to you diary. Today is a beautiful day, we are all out on the patio while mom types this for me. There is a nice cool gentle breeze keeping us cool. Yeah for fall.
I just got home from seeing Doc Nancy and I feel great. I haven't seen her in 3 weeks. This is significant because it means I am getting better. I no longer have to see her every week. The sores on my feet are healing up, this means I am not dragging my paws as much. I am eating normal portions of food now, but I am getting huge. I weigh 104 lbs. My usual weight is 96-98 lbs. Mom has started calling me Marsmallow, because she says I look like one and of course I am just a sweet. Doc Nancy told mom to add more veggies to my diet. Low calorie things because the extra weight will be hard on my neck. I can't get much exercise. Mom has been putting Paw Tectors (Booties)on my front feet so I can go for a short walk. We have to be careful to not go to far. I can just see mom carrying me home. BOL.
There is a family joke about Grandpa'a wagon. He offered his yard wagon so mom could take me for a long walk with Tuesday and Duke. Just imagine Mom walking with Duke and Tuesday and pulling a great big white german shepherd marshmallow in a wagon. Do you think people would stare? Wouldn't that be something? We would be having the greatest time and they would have something great to discuss at the dinner table. A beautiful day for everyone.

So what if people stare. If you would enjoy a longer walk and coming back in the wagon is feasible, go for it. Life is to be lived and lived to the fullest extent. Wobblers is bad but it sounds like you are doing very well. Accupuncture worked for a good friend and it helped Daddys last Dobe with his spinal arthritis. Hope you keep getting better and al least are able to enjoy longer walks.
