Dog Fish Missle Walking Well

September 18, 2008

Lily has started to recover from her surgery. She has a new shiney orthopedic plate under her skin on her back right leg. She has a mean looking 27 staples holding the skin togather until next week. We are taking slow walks once or twice a day right now, keeping her from walking up stairs or running. We have a new gental leader collar which is amazing and allows a dog that would always pull so hard on a leash to walk slowly to make her use her leg and muscles. We have quite a way to go yet, 8 weeks like this and then up to two years with the plate in which could hamper her in cold weather causing her leg pain due to the freezing plate. If her leg does not heal properly in the two years then she may never get the plate out. This is a hard blow, I was really looking forward to bringing her with me trout hunting in January.
