    There is good information online. I sure hope Otis feels better soon! Are they sure he'll need surgery?

    I'm sorry to hear this, will keep you & Otis in my thoughts & prayers and
    pray for a great outcome.

    Please keep us informed, Lynn...wish I could be there to give you my hugs.

    I hope it's an easy & permanet fix, give him a butt scratch
    and sloppy kisses from me. Please try and take care of yourself & yours, dear one.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I've researched a lot online. We will see what the specialist says tomorrow, I think so - he can't really put any pressure on his leg now - it's pretty bad at the moment. Thanks for your support.
