DOGGY DAY CARE: - He went to Doggy daycare on Monday when we didn't have power (so he and the others would be kept cool) and appeared to enjoy it. He gets along so well with other dogs. He also came back and was using his back leg (where the hip operation occurred) more, and putting it down more while walking. He continues to improve at an amazing pace.
STAIRS: - He also learned how to come downstairs, as long as we gently keep his behind straight. (We're still carrying him upstairs until he
builds up the muscle in that leg that he didn't use for so long).
STITCHES OUT TODAY: On July 5th, he gets his stitches out from his hip surgery and the removal of that benign fatty tumor. He's energetic, happy and follows us everywhere. He also loves putting a ball in his mouth and carrying it around or playing with it. I can tell he's getting better, because now he steals Dolly's toys when she's playing with them... and causes Dolly some Doggy Angst!
REHAB: We'll be talking with the doctor about physical therapy and will work with him over the next couple of weeks to get him healthy for a forever home. He's such a great boy, and it will tear me up to see him go to another home, but we need to continue our rescue efforts to help another dog.
