A bit of yogurt in Lucy's food once every other day or so did her wonders. I also feed her Wellness kibble, which probably helped too. She still lets out squeakers from time to time, but it's nowhere near as bad. The funny thing is that she cuts her eyes a couple of times and gets up and walks off a...

Eating foam rubber.....

....Lucy chewed up the covered pad in her cage today while we were out. I'm pretty sure she ate some sheepskin (or, more specifically, fake sheep skin), a bit of plastic and some foam rubber. She has thrown up a time or two, but I see no traces of any of the bedding. She doesn't appear to be in pain...

Damn man, sorry to hear about KING. Good looking dog. If you want some pricing comparisons, my dog Lucy recently went to one of the best teaching hospitals in the country recently with a spinal chord injury. They did pretty much every test/x-ray they could do, including a spinal tap. They also did s...

Priorities. I actually thought of that. Homeless people in the carribean (which we give to through a church charity). I could have bought someone a home. It may be a bit selfish, but i'm going to put in on my list and make up for it someday soon. Like on My Name Is Earl.

Oh absolutely it's worth it. I don't have to watch to American Idol in high def. Really. I don't. Funny thing is that I gave a co-worker of mine a bit of a hard time for spending a couple thousand on her dog who had cancer. Karma I suppose. I have no regrets regardless, but laughing makes the whole ...

Today Lucy was able to keep her butt in line while walking, which is a huge step. She also kept a good base with her feet....before she was keeping them too close, which caused her to fall over frequently. I was talking to a lady at work today that works a lot with horses and she said that the Oklah...

Not that i'm trying to solicit more cheerleading :)) but Lucy had a great day today as she's getting SO much stronger. She's a lot more stable in her back legs, and even tried to go down the step in the back yard tonight. She's also not only lifting herself up while in the cage, but she's making a c...

Thanks so much for the great feedback. Yes, all the girls of the household are stunningly beautiful. :)) When I got home from work today Lucy actually got up in her cage and was ready to walk out on her own. Of course, I still used the sling, but this is the first day she's gotten up on her own. We ...

Here are a few pics of my wounded hound. She's walking with assistance, and seems to do better when she gets excited when walking (i.e. when she sees kids, other dogs). Today she peed outside, but pooped right when she walked back in the house. Kinda weird, but she's not used to going out in the fro...

Wow, somehow I missed this entire thing! I'm so glad to hear her surgery went well and she's on the mend! Poor sweetie, she must have missed her family terribly. I hope her recovery is a speedy one. And here I was thinking you were peeved at my prayer comment. :)) I'll have the pics up tonight, and...

Lucy is home tonight and seems to be pooped. My camera batteries went kaput so it'll be tomorrow before I get some pics up of her.

Thanks to all the well wishers. Now the real work begins.

Are they using a sling right now to help support her with walking?


Yes, they've been using a sling the entire time.

Thanks murfin. I appreciate it. Well, Lucy is coming home tomorrow about 3PM. I'll pick her up in Stillwater, and it's about an hour and half back home. The docs say she's doing very well, moving her legs in a walking motion (although not being able to support her weight effectively), peeing mostly ...

Well, it's been almost a week since Lucy has had her surgery. The docs have called me every day, and I went to see her this past Thursday. I was so happy to initially hear that Lucy wouldn't have be euthenized that I didn't realistically keep in mind that her recovery road wouldn't be smooth. When I...
