BIG leap forward today!
He marched on up to the top of the hill and he marched back down again. 🙂
This is the first time we have managed to walk up the hill since Badger’s operation. It’s not a huge walk but as you’ll see in the video, the ground is uneven at the top. The most exciting thing about this walk is that once we were up there, he was keen to sniff and wee on EVERYTHING. He has been a bit disinterested in his surroundings up until now so it was amazing to see him acting like his old self. At one point he even started wandering off to our neighbour’s house and I had to call him back. It’s a little too early in recovery for him to play with the dogs next door.
The other thing I am really happy with is that his back leg is moving and bending much more freely when he walks. At one point in the video you can even see him correct his stance. His leg is stretched out and stiff, then he does a little hop to bend it. YES!
We are still doing daily dressings but we can see progress and improvement every day. Two weeks ago I didn’t think we would ever get to this point. We are slowly and cautiously breathing a sigh of relief.
