He had his second knee done today, and it went well. He has to stay overnight. Hoping his recovery goes well. Poor little guy.

Darwin is plugging along, as well as can be expected. I think because he only had the one procedure this time, and because we all learned from the last time, it seems much smoother this time. His vet is pleased, so fingers crossed that it all stays as it has. Thanks so much for all the positive wishes and support. It really does mean alot.

Good news and thank goodness they only have 2 knees!!! I hope its an easier recovery this time.Abby found her 2nd knee easier as her first was stronger than before surgery,and like you ,we had found ways to make it easier.

Thanks Kelly and Alison. He continues to do well. Stitches were removed yesterday and he's allowed to start short walks. The truth is he has already walked on it around the house, which I told the vet, and he said was fine. He thought it was actually a good sign because little dogs often have be coaxed to use it. So long as we stay this course, it looks good. Yes, I'm so glad they have only 2 knees!!

Chris, sorry to hear read about Darwin's ruptured cruciate ligament.  Poor boy!  What a rough time you've both had.  The only comforting words I can offer (now, sorry this is so late), is that things can only get better from here on.  I hope Darwin is recovering well.  Bianca & I send well wishes and lots of Bichon hugs & kisses all the way from Singapore.

Thanks, Del and Pam! He is actually doing quite well, due in no small part to a talented and experienced vet surgeon. It was rotten that it happened, but at least we're on the better side of it. Smiley

Del, I was just thinking about you because I can't remember if I sent you a Christmas card or not (good to think of this in July, eh?- sorry, it's been a rough year). If I didn't, please let me know.

Thanks Del. He's doing pretty well. Still a bit slow to get up and has trouble runners , but overall we're happy. I guess it takes about 6 months to develop scar tissue around the stitches so fingers crossed that he stays the course.
