    I'm so glad to hear that Walter is back home and he's on the mend. I hope it's good news about his X-rays. Continuing to keep Walter in your prayers and thoughts.

    Wally is doing fantastic… in fact maybe TOO well. He's supposed to be on restricted activity for the next 10 days, and he keeps running across the house I swear I'm going to have to put the cone of shame on him if he keeps this up… Lol

    Radiologist report has come in and that "hook & wisp" found on his spine was concluded as a common appearance to ventral spondylosis which in layman terms mineralization of bridging fibrous tissue. NOTHING came up in his x-rays… thyroid test was normal, hips, limbs, everything…

    We had another visit w/Nikki our behaviorist today and I told her about the radiology report. She is STILL convinced based on the videos that I have provided her that he is in some kind of pain in that rear area. She wants me to find a chiropractor to see if manipulating that back area will give him some relief I don't know how I'm going to find that in this area unless I travel to Nashville, which may be my only option. She is pretty convinced that this is NOT a neurological issue, which honestly I was extremely relieved to hear. Today we worked on some skills… putting the harness & leash on w/out him freaking out, making him wait when I open the front/back door and a command for "check-in" where he is supposed to look at me. He did pretty good at everything but his harness/leash. He goes CRAZY when he sees them, and it took some time to get him to calm down. Nikki feels that Walter needs to learn some self-control (and I agree) and that his OCD is off the charts about some things. She does understand that EBD'S have a certain HIGH level of OCD'NESS I'm also going to give him breaks from Willow, and she will be learning the same commands as well. SO I will be busy the next couple of weeks…

    You know I didn't believe in it either until I was involved in a 3 car accident & we were stuck in the middle. My neck was a mess, and going to the chiropractor made such a HUGE difference for me. Not sure how the Wallygator is going to feel about it though… Lol

    Thanks for the info!!!

    Have you read about spondylosis...did they give him pain medicaton for it? Usually the pain resulting from it lasts on for the time it takes the vertibraes to, I don't know how to explain it,...the vertibraes ossify together and usually then the pain goes away. Acupuncture could help too and I'm guessing he is allready getting glucosamine and other joint supplements?
