Was I good, or was I bad?

Mom totally freaked me out last night. She was watching the AFC Championship Game -- cause our beloved Colts were playing, yes we live near Indy! Well, I'm kind of sensitive sometimes, so during the game when she said YEAH!!! I thought I was a real good boy and got very excited. But then she'd yell OH NO!!!!! and then I thought I was a bad boy, but what did I do? She had me on an emotional roller coaster, hey Mom take it easy will ya!

Well I ended up being a good boy thank goodness, since the Colts won! Wonder if I'll be good or bad for the Super Bowl? I sure hope I'm a good boy!

My sister likes to cram?

My sister is such a geek! She sits there and crams when there are agility trials on TV. What does she think, she's gonna be better than me? Naaaahhhhh.....

I had hydrotherapy today!

Had my first hydrotherapy session today, see (and yes, it's in slow motion):



I thought it would be kind of scary, but it wasn't bad at all - as a matter of fact I liked it! Gotta go back two times a week for about 6 weeks. I should be a good swimmer by then, hey?

I got my bandage off, but!

Hi everyone! Wanted to give you an update on my broken paw. I got my bandage off yesterday, man I licked that leg and paw for hours, felt soooooooooo goooooooood!!!!!

I'm on leash rest for at least two weeks. Got to get back up to speed (so to speak, BOL!) gradually, so as not to get reinjured.

This Friday, Mom has me scheduled to visit with Dr. B, she's gonna help us with a rehab plan, with hydrotherapy, massage, and range of motion exercises. We want to do it right! Dr. B is a good friend of ours, and does agility with her dogs, and has a lot of experience with sports injuries. We're really looking forward to seeing her.

She says, though, realistically, that it may be up to two months before I can do an agility trial again. At least we'll probably be ready by the April USDAA trial, run by our trainer. That's cool!

Thanks again for all your well wishes. I really appreciate it!!!

Big day today!

Big day today! I go to the ortho to get another x-ray and see if I'm ready to get back in training. Wish me luck!

Friday, January 05, 2007

The day I got my cast off!

I got my cast off recently. Before we went off to see the Ortho, Mom let me let loose a bit in the backyard! I got around pretty good with that peg leg, huh? Check it out:




Then we were off to the vet, here I am with my favorite Vet Tech! She's kewl!

She took me in to remove my cast and put on a nice soft cast, see here's the cast:

Sure glad I don't have to see that thing again!

Is anyone out there?

Hey all, have to tell ya, I'm just not sure that anyone is reading my blog - not for sure anyway. Let me know you're out there! Send me a note, post a photo! I'd love to meet other pups and see what you all look like.....

C'mon, don't be shy!!!!

Two more days!

Well, only two more days and I get new xrays to see how my paw is doing.

If all is well, I'll get my bandange off! Yippee! I've been putting weight on my soft bandage a bit, Mom loves seeing that. If I'm cleared it's on to rehab for me -- including hydrotherapy (yeah, I get to learn how to swim, finally).

It's been raining here a LOT -- and she has to double bag my bandage before I go outside so it doesn't get wet. Boy are we both sick of that! 8 weeks of bagging, EVERY time I go out. That's got to be at least 500 bagging episodes. No wonder my ears go back with she comes near me with those things! BOL!

I'll keep you posted! And have a good weekend!

Happy 2007!

Yee Hawww! It's 2007 and boy are we excited about that. 2006 was a good year, but I'm really looking forward to 2007!

First of all I want to announce that we are now blogging through Blogger! Yep, technology is so cool -- now you can leave us comments that all can see, and we can communicate with you even more easily -- now that's really cool!

Secondly, I want to tell you what my New Year's resolutions are, ready?

I resolve to be injury free this year! Yep, I said it. I don't want to have any injuries this year, Mom and I have had it!

I resolve to be myself at all times, and not let others affect my moods. And that means you Gracie! BOL!

I resolve to continue to have lots off fun with my Mom, no matter what we're doing - hanging out, watching TV, doing agility (training or competition), or just playing around. I'm crazy about my Mom.

I resolve to be a better brother -- to my sister Gracie, and my kitty brothers, Wolfie and Wiggy - they've earned it!

Well that's it, I'll keep you posted on how I'm doing.

Be sure and let us know what your New Year's resolutions are!!!! -K? We'd love to hear from you.

I also want to take this time to thank all of you for being my friends. We sure appreciate all of our customers and buds; and hope we bring a little bit of value and fun to your lives. You've sure earned that!

Have a great 2007 everyone. And remember........

Keep happy, keep healthy, keep safe and above all.....keep your tummy full!
