I have gained soooo much ground and muscle but there is still no consensus as to my chances of walking again. Mind you, I was not adopted on the premise that I would ever walk, heck no one even thought I would live this long so I fooled ‘em there. If I don’t get up and strut my mutt but, both mom & dad are going to love me forever but they’re always wanting to do what is best for me.
In October another re-evaluation will be taking place and this time mom is really torn. Does she give me a little break from going to the physical location that averages 4 hours per trip, 3 days a week? Maybe through the end of the year then do a re-check? Would that cause me to lose any ground? Will doing the exercises at home with no water treadmill be enough? All the “what-if?’” questions are running around nipping at her heels like a wild dog!
The cost of my therapy would be shocking to most! Fortunately so far we have been blessed to receive a lot of extra work to cover these costs...but it won’t be indefinite so how long can it be sustained? . There’s another dog in therapy whose condition is very similar to mine and they think he will event—u—ally, perhaps... maybe…someday…walk but he’s also owned by a vet and is going on 3 years of therapy!! So you see where the struggle comes from?
More than anything is mom’s wanting to do the right thing for the Rhu dog. If any of you Rhu fans would like to weigh in with their opinions that would be Rhu-hoo-awesome!! I’ll just wait around and do the job I do best…BEING CUTE!!!
With the beginning of fall it’s a time to reflect on the many reasons why we found each other in the first place. Though the leaves may be changing colors our love for each other won’t be changing. That matters most to us and we will always be together as a FOREVER FAMILY...THAT, will NEVER, EVER change. I am paws-a-tive!!!
Happy Autumn everyone!
