Go for it!

As many of you know, my fuzzy buddy, Oscar, was badly bitten nearly three months ago.

60 stitches can take a toll on a dog, especially when he has to be on a lead and cut back on his daily exercise. (It takes a toll on the owner too!)

But now.. now.. his wonderful zest for life is back! Just like it was before the incident…

And although I’m not throwing any balls for him to catch because I don’t want to twist his leg, there’s always next winter. He can run around in the woods off the leash and he has even started swimming in the lake. Yes – his leg is as good as new!

Seize the moment, jump high for joy and remember to give today a happy ending! (Sorry – I got all cheesy there for a moment …)

Please note that these photos were taken during the winter. The snow is ALL gone now!

    I was wondering about the snow….and feeling mighty sorry for you if that was on the ground at your place still…..
    It’s horrible when our fur babies have a rough time, especially since they can’t say how they feel themselves you have to be more in tune to their body language, that usually speaks volumes and it sounds like your fur baby is feeling super duper!!! :-))

  9. It’s so good that dear Oscar can run off the lead again. It’s so hard for an active dog to accept such limitations – and be as cheesy as you like – that’s why we have pets, isn’t it? 😉

    Good thing that you put those disclaimers on this post. The first thing I thought, was “they still have snow?”.

She wouldn’t even approach puppies. Those things can happen even among the best doggie mates! XOXOXOXO Oscar!
