    buddy's update

    Advertisements
    if anyone remembers, buddy was put on kennel rest again 5 1/2 weeks ago. today he got the all clear for me to groom him (finally!) and we're starting to increase activity.

    i'm so scared to let him do anything. i don't want it to happen to him again. even though it's more than likely that it will.

    anyway, that's the latest on buddy boy.

    and the poor guy is so excited to be out of his kennel and finally groomed and feelin' good that he's running all over the house. he still hasn't figured out he can't really do that on the hardwood floor. and the he's been jumping over the pillows that we put on the floor for him to jump on when coming off the furniture. he's taken a few spills. a couple times jumped up and flipped over backwards. i hope that doesn't make it happen all over again. but i guess time will tell.

    i told dh that if/when this happens for a 3rd time, i'm getting the thing done where they put the dye in his spinal cord since the injury won't show up on a regular x-ray. keep your fingers crossed it doesn't happen again though!

    he, i guess, hurt his back. he had an inflamed disc in his back which made it so he couldn't really control his back legs. it almost looked like he was going paralyzed in his back legs. but after 5 weeks of kennel rest he's doing much better and is able to walk right again. he's just gotta take it easy so as not to irritate his back again.
