One More Week!

One more week until Riley’s 8 week follow-up appointment after her TPLO knee surgery.  Hopefully she’ll get off of strict crate rest and be allowed to roam the house.  I read online somewhere that you have to keep your dog from running and jumping for 16 weeks…shoot me now!  I’m hoping her X-rays will show that her bone is 100% healed and she’ll be able to slowly work back up to normal activity.  We’ve followed all the instructions to a T, so we’ll see if all of our hard work has paid off.

Her appointment is next Wednesday, December 14th, at 9:00 AM.  I can’t wait to see how well she’s healing because in MY humble opinion, she’s doing great!

Thanks to Miss Barbara and the OP Pack for giving this Monkey Mark toy to Riley!  She has enjoyed the heck out of it and has chewed it into shreds that she STILL likes to play with.  She likes to lay her head on it when she’s sleeping.

Attempting to get a belly rub from Grandma!

“Ah, that feels good!  Thanks, Grandma!”
Continue to keep your paws crossed for Riley’s recovery!  She’s doing great so far and we hope she can be freed of the crate next Wednesday.

  3. Hi, Just found your blog from Luna's. We have a 10.5 year old Shepherd/Walker hound mix, Kip, who has had both knees repaired with TPLO (Dec 2009 & Jan 2011). He has made a complete recovery and is 100% back to his old self these days. I know the recovery is hard on both of you, but hang in there — the finish line is in sight!
