Today is a good day…

…Luke is 6 months post op!!!

We had a small scare in late December. In the midst of moving to a new apartment I didn’t have time to get the dogs out and exercise them as I normally do for about two weeks. I also had to board them briefly. The lack of exercise caused some pretty significant muscle loss so when I picked the dogs back up from being boarded poor Luke was having trouble walking. His hind end would collapse frequently. I felt sooo bad! Since then we’ve been building his stamina back up. Luckily our new apartment complex has a dog park on site and nearby walking trails and we make liberal use of both and he’s back to running around like a maniac now. Needless to say a lesson was certainly learned there.

Also, of much less importance, his hair is almost done growing back in. You can still make out the outline of where he was shaved and he doesn’t quite have the tail feathers he used to but overall he’s looking much less naked. We haven’t had any more silly comments about mange haha 😆

Heres my good boy enjoying a big puddle at the park!

  1. Mr Good Lookin’! It’s nice to know you’re back in your groove. Looks like the new digs are suiting you very, very well. YAY for more good days!

    By the way if you guys haven’t already checked out our Rehab Reimbursement program, please do. Having Luke evaluated by a canine rehab therapist can tell you how to help him stay strong so that he doesn’t have more weakening or future injuries from going too crazy. The best part is the Tripawds Foundation will pay for it! See:
