Square Dog Friday. . . no gud very bad day

Here we are again, the best day of the week.
Square Dog Friday.
So let's woof it !
.
 Sunday thehamish was helping building the new outside table.

 yesh i thehamish is workin' hard so windy day 
i thehamish is helper gud dug

 even for a gud dug like i thehmaish this is very hard wokin'

 i thehamish might be sleepin' maybe and maybe not

 so hard workin'


And then the Oh My Goodness happened.
One second he was hunting lizards the next second he was dragging his back legs
while trying to get into the house.
He couldn't walk, his back leg where wobbling and could not support him 
and he was falling down.

 Dinner on the sofa.



On Wednesday we took him to Veterinary Specialty Center Tucson or VSOT.
All dogs are really 3 legged dogs with a spare.  So far this has worked with thehamish.
He has an ACL injury in his left leg. I didn't want to have anymore operations done.
So we decided to wait and try "sanding" and hope for the cartilage build up. 
He used the leg but it never really "healed".
But he seemed to be fine with the skip hop skip limp.
But then... 
He blew out both back legs. Big Time with lots of damage.
He has Bilateral Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture. Or ACL rupture.
So now he has to have the operation I wanted him not to have.
Now I have to get him to the eye doctor first, finish all the repair work on the house
and set up his operation date. Then 8 weeks of rest no walking and more pills !

 yesh i thehamish is here again with the nice tall owie people 
i thehamish is liken' them but not liken bein' here 
i thehamish is watin' to go home.
woe is me

 yesh this is me thehamish back here again.
woe oh woe is me
woe

......................

And as always here is your pretty to start the weekend.
a repeat of thehamish riding my walker. 
thehamish is perched on my walker for a ride to go outside.
I will be using a soft cloth to hold up his back leg 
so he can walk with his front legs only to go outside.

thehamish is such a gud dug.

  1. Hi, Gayle!

    Gosh, thehamish can't seem to catch a break lately. I am so so sorry to find out that his legs gave up on him. I hope the operation is a success and that you and he get through the recovery period w/o further setbacks. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your lovable (and gud) square dog, dear friend Gayle.

  6. Oh these dogs - the ones lucky enough to have us for owners. My Sister did the same thing when a disc blew out in her back. I cried rivers and freaked out. It was right before Xmas in deep snow on a Saturday night, rushing across the state to the Veterinary College for surgery. Since then she has developed diabetes and then blind with cataracts. Had those removed so she can see, but with all the meds and eye meds. I feel so sorry for those that can't afford it. I quit counting at $10K. but would do it all again. She is my best friend and like a child to me. I hope the rehab goes quickly and smoothly and will think of you both.

    1. I am so sad to hear this.
      Daughter doxie has had 3 back surgeries. He was beaten and that has destroyed his back.
      When I go to the vet I don't even look at the bill I just sign it and hand over my credit card. thehamish has diabetes, insulin shots 7 eye drops, bladder, pancreatitis a special dog food and only one kind of treat. I take better care of him than myself.
