All your juju and good thoughts have worked wonders. Tweed has been limp-free since Thursday. I upped his exercise a bit and even with running, jumping and some (Ru-free) hiking, he’s weight bearing on all legs, and no limping at all. He gets to go back to class next week. Hazzah!
I shall reward you all your efforts with totally unstaged (ha ha) photos of dogs in a blueberry field on a sunny day!
It’d be nice if his tail was the same colour as the rest of him. Every summer it bleaches out, and doesn’t catch up to his darker coat until Spring, just in time for the process to start all over again.
Mr. Woo = two functions only: “Sit” and “Hunt.” He managed to offload his bear bell in some undergrowth about 4 days after I implemented it. But we have been working very hard on stuffing his face with homemade fish brownies every time he answers a recall, and I’m getting about 50% success. Which is better than 0%, which is what it had deteriorated to,
Anyway, thanks again for all your marvelous healing thoughts!! We are so happy to have a fully functioning Tweed again :)
