Hershey is getting stronger and more ornery each day, he's really tired of being kenneled up so much. I took him out to go potty, and walked him to the back of the house (we put a ramp up in the front of the house, as there are less steps) as soon as I got him out back, I put him in his potty area... Instant Download ! yea ! I guess he must be shy, and confused, he was looking at me like 'Dad, I'm suppose to over THERE, by the black metal stuff, on the INSIDE' then he downloaded and looked up at me with that "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH that felt good" expression on his face he is testing the leg a little more each day.... sometimes putting on weight, sometimes 3 legging it.

Hershey is really doing well.. If we wouldnt have him on the leash, he would be boucing around almost like normal, but his knee isnt strong enough for that - he gets a bit of Cabin Fever, but we walk him for 5-10 mins, a few times a day to build up his strength. We had to get him an inflatable doughnut, a softer version of 'the Cone of Shame' as he discovered his incision, and we caught him licking it. This is a good thing, as he can't climb up and down steps with it on! LOL.
Well that is the update, he is 1 week post surgery now
Was thinking about Hershey today and about to tag you so thanks for the latest update.
Really glad to hear he's doing so well.
Great news Rick!!!
Hershey update, the patient is doing quite well, and I'm really surprised at how fast he has bounced back, but this weekend is going to be the test of patience, as the 6 month old, 2 year old and 12 year old grand kids are in town. will we be able to keep him kenneled and calm through all of them?
Its 7 am, I just got off of work, I got a text from the wife 'Pup had his pill, please take him out to when you get home' Oh great ! so my work STILL isnt done ! LOL well... he 'downloaded' and is back in his kennel snoring away... guess that mean I'm off the clock for a few hours and can get some ......................................zzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
oh my where the heck have i been? im so glad he is doing so well and seems he will be back to normal soon. hope yall survive the grandkids.
We survived the grandkids, and Hershey is still be-boping along its tough to keep him from over doing it, or should I say, its tough to keep Dottie from having him Over doing it. 'But he's lonely ! I hate it when he's in his Xpen so much.... Can't he be on my lap in the recliner?' ARRRGGGHHH
but the patient has more patience than Momma does!
