Dog Update

Just in case anyone has followed our dog's progress I am posting an update. I blogged about her surgery first in Aug '08.
We took her for x rays about a month ago, and we were told that the bone hadn't quite healed just yet (that's 2 months after the surgery) This wasn't the best news, but the doctor said to just keep doing what we were doing and limit her activity a bit for another month, and she should be healed just fine. A little slower than some dogs, but still normal.
The month is up now. We are pretty much letting her do what she wants, but try to keep her from running after squirrels and barrelling down the stairs. The last thing we want is for her to injure the other leg, which we have been told, is very common...

That's an adventure we don't want to go through again.

This is good to hear, that a bit more time might heal. Well done, and three cheers for you getting this far!

your artwork is highly undervalued.

You've a wonderful talent... & could make some serious jingle if you were to tap the Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal & Calgary markets...

You wouldn't believe what people pay for pet portraits in Toronto...

Your detail & sensitivity are exquisite.
