Angel is now 'naked' without her full torso bandaging! She is doing sooooo good! Yesterday, for the first time, she made it up all the stairs to the porch. And she walked over to the pond and got in! Brandon had to run and grab her 3 times bc we were scared she wouldn't make it up the slope again. So he'd carry her back, set her down and she'd take off again for the pond! And for the first time, she played with the big dogs! Her 'playing' is following them around while they are wrestling and barking like a machine gun. I got it on video too! (I just realized my camera can do that.)
She can still only make it about 60-70 feet in one 'dose' then she is very tired. But she's gaining strength every day!
I promise I'll try to send in the video.

Way to Go Angel! Sounds like she is progressing nicely. To be heading for the pond and playing with the big dogs is great. I can't wait to see the videos! Don't forget to keep us updated on her progress.
Chuy, showing everyone that Tripawds do everything 3 times better than regular dogs!
Yeaaaay! OMG, it's probably SO nice to see your fur again, huh Angel?
You have such spark, it's really cool to see the way you're kickin' butt. Keep it up!
And yeah, we'd love to see a movie. If you need help, post your questions in the Technical Support Forum and we'll try to answer it there.
Yeaaaay! OMG she looks fantastic, it's just so hard to believe that just a few weeks ago she was almost not gonna make it. What a wondeful girl!
We subscribed to your videos and put this one on our “Tripawd Pals” video page. We can't wait to see more!
