Test number 1 - Measuring how much muscle mass I have gained ... Hindquarters, 2 inches of muscle gained!!!! No more makin' fun of my skinny butt! Then, the stronger part of me which is my front end... A full inch gained! RHU-HOO!!!
Test number 2 - How much flexibility/range of motion I've gained - 50 Degrees MORE flexion on the RT rear+10 degrees in my knee alone and 20 degrees more on the front ankle...Well without going into boring figures let me just say the doc just kept putting me in weird positions, placing an even weirder measuring device on me, and then saying... OMG, this is wonderful! Someone's REALLY been doing their homework. Uhhh - that would be me in case you were wondering...Okay so mom helped out but I got the good numbers!!
At the end of all those tests the doc's final statement... " I have really high hopes for him"!
Oh man, I know I saw real tears in mom's eyes then!! Does that rock or what?!!
It's been cool to feel myself actually standing on my hind legs with only a spotter to keep me squared up and I look so much like a real dog and a TALL dog for sure.
I have quickly become the superstar at this place too. Even for other dog owners...they all ooh and ah when I come through the door. "He is so beautiful, he is the cutest dog I've ever seen" Not news to me!
I love that mom stays with me and even helps out the entire time I'm there. Sometimes I try using my very best Rhu sad, mom, save me face when they put me in uncomfortable positions but to no avail... mom's a tough gal and doesn't give in to me. Actually I'm very glad because otherwise I wouldn't be making such great gains.
So, we will continue our hard work and everyone out there please continue keeping all your "paws-i-tive" thoughts heading forward! Rockin' Rhubarb will prevail! YES HE WILL!! More videos to come...
