…much with the stair issue as Zeus allowed us to carry him.  Maybe borrow a kid's wagon to get him to the elevator?

Best of luck with the rest of recovery.  It really does get better - I promise!

…and situations, as a dog owner who spent a good deal of time with both dogs before and after big surgeries, it seemed that amputation was an easier recovery. Although Chloe's fur took almost a year to fully grow back...just an aesthetic thing.

I always…
