Surgery Update: Week #8: Franklin's Spinal Surgery Recovery: Block Walk!

This is the end of week 8 after our 10 year old red smooth Dachshund Franklin's spinal surgery for a herniated disk, and he's walking and has even learned to run, although somewhat sideways (before he drops down on his butt after a minute or two). Today, Nov. 7, 2014, he actually walked around the entire block (I only had to carry him for about 2 minutes near the end). He's making amazing progress. His back legs still cross a little, and sometimes to walk fast he has to push off both back legs at the same time.



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.
