By the way, Otis lost a front leg, so lifting a rear leg to pee was a real challenge.  He started out leaning and peeing on the house, but gradually learned to balance or lean on trees/telephone poles.  You will be amazed at what a tripawd can do!

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

LOL 🙂 Otis mastered the art of peeing like a real man!!! 🙂 🙂 I remember you describing how he first leaned on things . Such a smart boy! 🙂

Frankie, however only mastered the art of peeing like a girl! 🙂 But I have to say, he doesn’t get a drop on him! He actually takes the standing position with just the slightest , slightest crouch. He has his front leg positioned well in front of him though and he keeps his aim towards the ground! 🙂

Remember, Oakley will pick up on your energy!! Embrace a strong and confident energy and he will feed off your strength and confidence!

Hugs!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

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!

Oakley has always weed like a lady as he had bad hips and could never cock his leg. He does a strange lunging stance at the moment and tends to wee on his front feet!!
