Week Thirteen Post Op

Rudi is at thirteen weeks post op today. We decided to let him start having the freedom of the entire house while we are at work. He's done a great job of being the "man of the house" while we are away. Three weeks from now and he'll be at full recovery and also one year older. He'll be the big 4!

Enjoying the great outdoors

This weekend was the perfect fall-like weekend! The weather was extremely gorgeous. Rudi has been able to venture out back by himself but of course under my supervision. We still want to make sure that he doesn't start running around the yard like a mad man. As you can see here, he is just taking in the sunshine and gazing through the back fence at the yard below where he used to run. He probably won't get that priviledge for quite sometime seeing as how his leg was injured from all the running in the first place. I think he's just happy to be off lead at the moment.

Week Twelve Post Op

Three whole months have passed since Rudi's surgery. I simply cannot believe we have come this far. It has been a great success and we still have 4 more weeks to go until final FINAL recovery is considered over. Rudi and I are still taking our nightly walks to build his muscle in his leg back up. Tonight, especially, he was tired after our walk so he took a nap in the office while I worked on the computer. This is the precious picture I got when I looked over at him. He's such a sweet boy....and a tired one too.
