Here are some updates to get you all caught up.
Doug loves being outside. I had this glorious vision of summer, I’d leave the doors open and Doug would travel from inside to outside, napping, playing, being a dog.
Since surgery, Doug has needed to be in his jail cell or on a leash, 24/7. I mean we have setbacks from not even doing anything (but not from doing nothing). But for all of you that fear that the yard dog doesn’t get his fill, oh contraire. He does, it just happens to be on a lame tie down.
We just hit 2-months post surgery. We were supposed to have a three-month recovery time. That has now stretched into
infinity six months. Doug has been on limited activity (from his already limited activity) and we are now coming off of that (hopefully). We have our two month X-ray on Tuesday. Fingers crossed that he is back on track and we can resume hard(er) core rehab.
We are rocking the boot on his good leg!
We were recently granted permission for him to do steps once a day so now he sleeps super soundly back upstairs (still in jail though)! Ahhhhh, the little victories are so sweet!
Most of you probably saw the video I posted on our Facebook page about my little inmate being excited to see his favorite warden return from vacation. I decided that upon return from vacation, I would grant him release from jail (with gradutaiton to tie down). At his parole hearing I asked that he keep all four legs and tail attached to his body and keep paws on the ground. This was him during minute one. He’s not allowed to jump, so yeah, it’s going great. Also, apparently death stares continue beyond the jail cell, so that’s fun.
She’s still kicking it in the hood. Doug clearly does not have the 360 degree eyesight that Jake did.
Have a great day!!!
