Week Six and Steep Next Steps

Thursday was my six week surgery checkup. The surgeon said my x-rays look great and my knees are most definitely on the mend. If you’ve been following my little story, at my 3 week blog I complained of being picked up, put down, and picked up yet again because I just wanted to have some fun and RUN. I heard the surgeon say the next step in my rehab is lots of steps, as in lots of stairs. My first thought was boy, oh boy, freedom at last! It started this morning, up the stairs, down the stairs, up the stairs. It’s not what I thought it’d be. This is hard work. I look up at her, but she won’t pick me up by my handle. She ignores my big round pleading eyes and I have to do it on my own. Those stairs are so steep and my legs are so tired. I wish I’d never complained about feeling like a purse. Now will you puleez pick me up!

Your friend,

Hey, Audie, you great little guy-so sorry to hear of your injury but with a spirit like yours you'll be back to running and digging holes again in no time (yes, we saw that picture of you making the dirt fly). Soon you won't miss your handle at all!

Aww, little's just as hard for her to stare back down into your big round pleading eyes and not pick you up. Keep at it! You'll be back in running shape in no time.

Hey Audie,

Great to see your step'in out and leaving those britches behind.

Speaking of behind, you'd be flying to the top if you pretended there's a cutie following you watching you waggle. And, you'd be sailing down the stairs, if you pretend a squirrel is at the bottom.

I hope your lady teaches you a neat bow & stretch game. It so helps me when I get up and after my outings.

Keep us posted & I'll Check-Back, Boris

Oh good luck! You'll have to practice a lot, but you won't need any help soon. Stairs can be pretty tough sometimes. But once you get strong, you'll be able to run right up them. (going down is always a little hard)
