Our pup Truman is on the mend!

The last 6 weeks have been full of ups and downs as we have tried to keep our youngest lab out of trouble as he heals following his knee surgery. The first month had me worried as he just wasn't following the norm as far as his ability to use the injured leg and walking goes. More x-rays revealed that the healing was going fine, Truman just needed to use his leg to build muscle and confidence. The last two weeks we have really seen improvement and he has begun to show signs of his old self--such as in this pic. Truman is actually teasing our other lab Gracie with this toy. He wants her to chase him. This kind of play is still off limits, which our sweet Gracie does not quite understand.
I have hidden all the toys but brought this chew toy out to give Truman something to keep him busy. It is such a relief to have progress. Another month or so and he should be good as new!

Maybe now I can regain a little of my time for scrapbooking--and take a few more pics of our dogs for layouts. I think Truman is probably the most photogenic dog we have had, and a ham to beat!

I'm so glad to hear Truman is doing fine. And with your love and attention (and Gracies!) he'll be as new in no time.
