This is for you, Sally. As is the blame for the fact I have done no work yet today… Enjoy….

Just to explain… these are exercises that Pie’s rehab vet had her do to build up the muscles in her back legs, which had become a little uneven due to arthritis in her knees….

Meg, Mutt, aged around 10, adopted 31/12/2009. Sudden explosive right elbow fracture 06/12 (caused by IOHC), diagnosed with End Stage Arthritis 03/15, Total Elbow Replacement 08/15, problems with healing leading to skin graft & skin flap surgery, Chronic Infection leading to implant breakdown. Became a Tripawd 9th March 2016.

smiley_clapBravo! Well done Pie! I’m just grinning BIG here smiley4 watching her work out. These are great exercises! What a difference guidance from a physio therapist can make. Remind us, how old is she?

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

ANOTHER MASTERPIECE FROM PIE PALACE PRODUCTIONS!!!😂🤣😂🤣

LMAO and, yes, thru some tears too!!  OMD!! WE LOVE  THIS PIE!!  Uou te aure know how to bring JOY to us!  So much pure joy!  She is furever woth us!!  Furever!!

So glad you threw work out with the window and focused on this brilliant sacred treasure instead!!

So, would you have been the one to pick the background music, or would this have been  a choice from Elsie Pie?.    Either way, I’m  worried. OMD::   THIS BOMB’S FOR LOVING AND UOU CAN SHOOT IT FAR…SEX BOMB!   Certainly  a different kind of workout mantra😉 Jjust wrong in so many levels!😂🤣😂🤣😂

And, on top of this masterful production, it was quite Informative!!!  Thank you for taking the time to show is The Pie’s workout program.  I’ll show this video to Frankie and Nellie.  Nellie is my old stiff senior thst alwaus reminded me of Elsie Pie as her muzzle got fros tier and frostier.  I don’t  think she has near the flexibility  or rear leg strength. to do this.  She just kinda plops when she goes to sit or lay down,  Then again, maybe she can do this with the RIGHT background  music to motivate  her!!   I’ll play your song from Pie’s song list and see if it helps!   Hmmmmm……. maybe it will help me do some form of work out.  No worries, I won’t  post a video of that!!!

Okay, gonna go watch it again so I can have a permanent  smile on my face!

Lots and lots of love to you, Meg and Always Pie ❤❤❤

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Oh Clare! Another brilliant, creative video where you fully capture Pie’s personality.

My front-amputee kitty Mona would not make such an exciting video doing her stretches to swat a feather. She would do it laying down and moving into a full stretch of all legs. Quite boring although very meditative. Perhaps she doing visualization.

Thanks for this video – I’ll show it to Mona!

I’m with you Sally. I think we need to find the right music to motivate our pets. I look forward to your video!

Hugs for all,

Kerren and Tripawd Kitty Mona

I’ll have to have quad Pug boy Obie look at this video.  I try and work with him to strengthen his back legs but he gets so excited about the treat possibilities that he just tramples all over everything to get to the food.

Omd!

Love,  love,  love that! Seeing her brought tears, smiles,  and laughter.  I so miss seeing her. And I have missed seeing you and Meg A Star❤

Angel Pie, you are still in our lives making us smile.  Just the thought of that beautiful silvery mug brings back memories of your beautiful personality. 

Thank you Clare, for taking time out. Sending you and Meg hugs and belly rubs… respectively😁🤭😊🥰😉

Hugs,

Jackie, David, Bo, Andy, Oscar, Angel Mitchell, and the coolest feral tripawd kitty Huckleberry
