Very exciting news! We went to the surgeon yesterday for re-check x-rays. Everything looks great. My rear leg is about 75% healed. Mom took me for an hour walk on leash in the local park - first walk in 7 weeks! I was so excited to be outdoors. I power sniffed everything I could find.
Monday I start aqua therapy. I got my goggles and bathing cap on and ready to make a big splash. I LOVE to swim so I can't wait to begin these sessions. Gypsy Belle was a strong swimmer too during her aqua therapy sessions. Maybe I'll show them my back stroke?

It's been about 8 weeks since I've broken my rear right leg. Mom has me crate resting and on sedation. It's been a tough time for us both, and my little brother Zack too. On Monday, we go back to the surgeon and have additional x-rays done. We're hoping and praying that my leg has healed nicely. If yes, then I'll put my bathing cap on and get ready for aqua therapy. Whoo hoo!

I’ve been 3 1/2 weeks in my crate and I’m havin’ a hard time. Mom has to sedate me several times a day because I just want to explode. The surgeon said no sudden moves and I have to use a sling to walk. Sometimes Mom takes me outside to potty and I can feel the cool air on my face and listen to the birds. But, mostly I just want to hunt! Mom has me playing with food puzzles and that helps somewhat, but I just want to run with Zack and play rough like big dogs.
Speaking of Zack, have you ever had a pesky little brother? He wants me to play chase and tries to tease me while I’m in my crate. I’d like to hunt him too, but Mom won’t let me. She drapes my crate so I don’t get too upset. Zack loves me, but doesn’t understand that I need to be quiet. Mom says we only have 4 more weeks to go. Then I will have my leg x-rayed again to make sure I can begin physical therapy. Zack is being a good boy right now and is sleeping right next to me. We “face fight” on a large dog bed together at night when Mom and Dad watch TV. I just need to be patient.
