We’re past the 1 month mark and there isn’t a whole lot to report so I’ll just upload a bunch of pictures.  Because let’s face it my phone is filled with them.

Quality time with my cousin

It’s been a good couple of weeks!  We’re getting back to our normal activities.

Last week we had our first meeting with the rehab therapist.  I really liked her.  She did a complete evaluation of Toby and then we discussed exercises, stretches and massage.  I really like that she didn’t push buying a bunch of equipment and talked about being creative by using things around the house.  We have 4 exercises that we are to work on and she is going to send me a list of more to do.  She did recommend getting a video on how to safely stretch your dog and said I should add fish oil to his diet.  I don’t know if she stretched something out or released some tension but it was the first day he was interested in playing with his toys.  He even wanted to play tug a war with her.  It was good to see my buddy back.

We had some other fun activities lately.  Last weekend I took him to a friend’s house to hang out by the fire pit.  He got to see his doggie buddy.  We didn’t let them play because it was still too soon for rough housing with a big dog but it was good for him to get out of the house.

Then this weekend was the first crowded public outing.  One of the local breweries was having a big release party for their fall beers.  The place was packed but he did a great job navigating through the crowd.  He did what he normally does and seeks attention from anyone that will give it to him. (I know, I know, I never give him any attention at home).  He made lots of friends and I was surprised by how few people noticed he was missing a leg.  At one point he decided he wanted to join another group of people so I ended up talking to them for awhile.  One of the guys ask if I ever thought of having him be a therapy dog.  It might be something fun we could do so I’ve been thinking about it.

I’ve been really bad about taking pictures… sorry! So here are a couple I just took right now, one from when he first got his tripawd bandana and just a cool picture from the brewery we went to.

Today is Toby’s two week ampuversary!

We’ve had some good days and bad days but he seems to be happy and more energetic now that all the drugs are out of his system.  I have been very hesitant about letting him do anything active so we’ve been staying in the house a lot.

I posted in the nextdoor app that I was looking for a children’s wagon to buy.  I family a couple neighboorhoods over gifted me their old wagon.  Every day in the tripawd world makes you recognize and appreciate all the generous people that are out there.  So last night he got his first trip around the neighborhood.  He hopped around for a several houses and rode the rest of the way.  We even visited some neighbors.

Tomorrow he gets his staples out and Tuesday he has his first rehab appointment.  Every day we’re getting closer to getting back to normal life.
