Sunny's Journey

Becoming a Tripawd at 13

No News is Good News

Sorry for long delay between postings.  It has been a very exciting time for our family.  I’ve taken a new job and as a result I will now split my time between Atlanta and New Orleans.  My job is with the Audubon Zoo as the Assistant Curator of Primates.  This probably helps explain the “prim8keeper” user name.

Enough about me though, on to Sunny!  He has been doing fantastic.  At this point he does everything he did prior to his surgery except for going up the stairs.  He will go up if you call him and cheer him along the way, but it’s obvious it is hard.  As a result we just pick him up.  We figure we would rather carry him than have him hurt his good back leg.  He has continued to go swimming at least every two weeks, if not weekly, to work on core strength in addition to what we are doing at home.  Currently at home we are doing cookie stretches, massage and  warm compresses.  He isn’t as excited about what we do at home as we would hope, but we try our best to get him interested.

I’ll try to post some photos tomorrow of our happy boy!

  1. Congratulations on your grrrrrreat career! Doing a job you love is such a gift!
    AND, CONGRATULATIONS TO SUNNY FOR DOING SO WELL 🙂

    Yeah, my Happy Hannah never was sble ro go up stairs as a rear legger either. Carrying Sunny up the stairs keeps him safe and everybody gets to sleep together! YAY!

    Can’t wait to see more pictures!

    Hugs to all!

  4. Congrats! Glad he is doing so well. My golden is on day 8 post amputation. I was wondering what cookie stretches, massages, and warm compresses you are doing. It might help my girl out. Thanks.
