Amazing Videos of Chance Walking Pre & Post Surgery

TWO SHORT VIDEOS OF A SUCCESS: This will make you smile.

Our foster dog, Chance had surgery on Thursday, June 21, just 5 days after we took him out of the county animal shelter (and had three vet appts in between). The veterinary surgeon, Dr. Prostedny in Annapolis, is amazing.
Take a look at the first video here of Chance limping toward me (Rob) on the morning of June 21st. He typically hopped with his emaciated, non-working leg twisted behind him.

The second video was shot Sunday, June 24, 2012, just three days after his surgery. We've been limiting his activity to just going outside, but it was amazing to see that in just three days, he's already walking much straighter, and trying to put his weak leg down!!  (We're taking him to therapy after the stitches come out- which is July 5th - and the stitches are healing well and quickly!). We couldn't be happier for him, and we've been giving him new toys (he loves stuffed squeaky toys) and treats.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
