This is Petey one of my beautiful dogs. Doesn't he look cute with his ear back??
He hurt his leg about 2 months ago and after seeing a surgeon needs surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right knee. The vet said he has a "football injury" !
He will have his surgery on Tuesday and will have to be kept quiet for 6 weeks!! Oh, I can see this is going to be fun. His brother is going to be confused when his buddy can't go out to run and play.
Petey is an active dog and this is going to be so hard on all of us. No stairs (our bedroom is upstairs), no running ( I will have to take him out to potty on a leash) . He won't have a cast so I am sure there will be lots of licking :)
Say a little prayer for Petey. For the next three days Dad and Mom will be worrying. We will go up to Eugene three hours away on Monday afternoon so to be there for his surgery at 8AM on Tuesday. They will keep him overnight and then he will be able to come home on Wednesday....how are we ever going to get him in the car? He weighs 118 lbs and Alan just had surgery so he can't bend over or create any pressure on himself. This ought to be interesting.
