|Hi Bosley and Scooter
I am so glad to hear that Bosley is doing a little better.....and the poop news is great!!! (maybe not so great in the house...)
Did the Vet say why his legs are so stiff and fully extended? Is that normal Scooter? Does he have feeling in them, or is that to come with progress and time? I am glad you are getting him outside and getting him moving a little. You are doing such a great job with him, he is very lucky.
My girls are all like Scooter, they like their crates!!!They think of them as their beds and their "place" to go relax. I never close the doors, they just go in and out freely. Has he ever been crated? Scooter gave good advice about the crate. It should be only big enough for him, not big enough for him to have two bedrooms in it!! I made that mistake with Summer when I first got her. I had a HUGE crate and I thought that I was just the best Mom around, giving her a big bed to be safe in. Well, she used one side to pee in, and the other side to sleep in!!
I am looking forward to updates and reading his progress. I am sure he is VERY happy to be home. Does he sleep near you? I'll bet he was lonely at night while at the vet, another reason he will be better at home.
Like two idiots, we took the girls, including Summer, out for a walk last evening. Summer was feeling much better, acting spry, so we thought, why not go for a slow, short walk. Well, even just out to the pine grove and back was too much. Today, I feel like she was sore or something. She is happy and acting well, but she will not even try to go up or down even one step. It was a challenge keeping her from stairs for the past two days since she was better, but now I feel like that was very irresponsible of us to take her on a walk. Almost 3 weeks ago the Vet said to rest her for two weeks, and we honestly didn't go far, but it was too much. She already seems better to me, but no more walkies for awhile.
Give Bosley and Scooter big hugs from us, but don't squeeze Bosley too tight. Keep us posted and I will check this often to hear of some improvement. I'll bet you by the weekend he will be moving those back legs!!
