Elvis Update


It's been about 6 weeks since Elvis' surgery and he's recovering nicely.  He's still not very strong on his back legs and that prevents him from jumping up on the couch.  The vet said that awareness of limb placement would be the last thing to return.  That's probably what makes him walk like he's in a marching band with his hind legs while trying to run with his front ones.  It is rather comical to watch....poor dear.

Meanwhile, Dusty's having a grand time at Montana's house.  They have the same spirit and energy (and mentality) and play with each other continuously.  Bettina took a video of them playing out in the yard this winter and I thought I'd share it.  It cracks me up every time I watch those two idiots running and wrestling.  It looks like they're hurting each other - but they're not.

Hi Sandi and Tanna - yes, it seems like it's taking forever to get him back to normal. He really wants to use those back legs though, so he pushes himself to do things he shouldn't. The vet told us it would be 3 months before he was "normal" though, so we know he still has a way to go. Thanks for the kind thoughts.
