A lazy afternoon on guard duty for a temporarily crippled dog and his none too bright best buddy. Their job- to guard the most precious person in this house.

I’ve walked Kane about 3 times today and noticed something that has me positively giddy. If I let the tops of his feet graze the grass or the smooth tile floor in our house he starts to move his legs just a little (about a 10-15 degree range of motion) back and forth as if he was walking. He still can’t put any weight on them like that- he only places weight on them when he locks them out which is happening more and more. I was so happy I brought him in and yelled for my wife to come watch. It was really cool to see him move his legs.

Also, I’ve discovered that it seems much more productive when I do his physical therapy right before I take him out for his walk. He locks out longer and moves his legs more if I’ve worked with him on his legs before we go out. No if only he would let me sleep through the night. (more…)


The doctor called this morning.  You know it isn’t going to be a good call when they say, “We have some good news and some bad news for you.”  Of course she told me the goods news first, and of course all I could think of was, well what is the bad news??? (more…)
