It's a dogs life

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Today my dog came home from the vet. She tore her acl tendon and cartlidge in her right back leg and had to have it surgically repaired. 8 to 12 weeks for recovery. After about a week I can start doing range of motion exercises a couple times a day with her. She won't be able to go for a real walk for about 3 months. At least by the time she is healed the weather will be better. For now she has to be crated and activity to a minimum. Just as I am planning on amping up my activity level doing whatever I can. It should be interesting since I will be taking care of my mom and my dog. But I am dedicated to a better me. I'm tired of my "fat" pants leaving rings around the middle from being too snug.

Peace out
