This has been an paw-some summer!! I experienced the beach for the first time ever. Although I am not a big fan of the salty taste or the waves...I love running around and chasing the ball. Mom and Dad got me a life vest to wear in my favorite orange color for protection and to help keep me cool in the sizzling sun. We have made lots of new friends on the beach since they are all curious to find out what happened to my leg. Ughh..if they only knew the long summer I had confined at home recuperating last year. Needless to say, they have all been very nice and amazed at my recovery. My thinking is...never judge a book by its cover. I am just so happy to be alive and well and splish splashing in the summer sun on the beach.
This time last year as you all may know, Baron endured a traumatic accident.
As a result of it he lost his front right leg. A year later, Baron continues to astound us with his tenacity, adorable human like maneurisms and sweet and yet tough personality. Baron gets around perfectly well with three legs. He does pretty much everything he used to do with four except for wrestling with his dog friends of course. Chasing the ball, running and even going for long walks has not been a problem at all. He has even perfected the roll over trick and does it more now than before. Guess cause he loves to get belly rubs, kisses and leg massages!
Baron has also adjusted very well in eating his raw hides and greenies just fine with his front leg and still continues to stick his hiney up in the air as he divulges his treat. So cute!!
Although he does several things he used to he is aware and cognizant of his limitations like trying to dig a hole , finding a hiding spot for his bone or walking down the steps.
We carry him from time to time especially when coming out of the car since the pavements can be rough on his paws. Plus he loves to be carried with his hind legs daggling and getting a clear view of the sites at either a 5'2 or 5'9 viewpoint!
Though we are still very cautious and even more vigilant with every little step he makes, we are just so grateful that our little Baron has pulled through his ordeal and continues to be the good natured, fun loving, hard not to kiss and resist his puppy eye dog that we fell in love with three years ago.
We enjoy every second we are with him and cherish every moment and look forward to several more years of love and happiness with our little precious miracle......
