FRANKIE RISING ON OWN 1-16.mp4

FRANKIE DOWN INCLINE 1-16.mp4 https://1drv.ms.....63SgR4Iw3A.

You're fast Jackie!   I'm still trying to copy links to videos!! 🙂 🙂 

Hope these show up in some form!

You can EASILY see why trying ti "rehabilitate" a tripawd after cruciate surgery and make him go slow, and hold his leg in, and put some pressure on it IS A TWO.PERSON JOB!!!   You jave no idea how hard he was pulling and trying to go fast.  The assistant  and muself could barely hold him back!!

Okay, these are from Dr Weedle's phone.  Something avput google drive and rurned sideways, vut hopefully you can see them. The advantage of a tavlet is you can turn it sideways!!  Bet you computer people with vulky co.puters can't do that!!!

Okay, that didn't work.  So I'll ppst another one of Nurse Merry Myrtle instead.:-)

I did get Myrtle a new teddy bear (baby) as a reward for helping Frankie.  She always carries her bavies outside and drops them off right at the end of the ramp (that's my old woodstove covered up in the tarp.

So Input her new baby in a bag and left it there for her to find.   Love this sweet dog!heart

Sally,

He is doing amazing.  Absolutely amazing.  I am so glad that you got this rehab vet to come out to your house.  I think trying one water treadmill and see how it goes would be a good thing too.

Way to kick butt Frankie, Sally & Nurse Myrtle

Sally! He's doing so good! All your hard work, and worry are sure paying off. I know it's not been easy for you, but look how far he's come! When we see him in May, we won't be able to tell he was ever laid up. And how sweet to get nurse Myrtle a new baby! Good job, all of you!

YAAAAY! Frankie is really doing great, what fun to watch his pawgress. I love seeing him do the ramp and just look like such a hoppy doggie again. And Myrtle also looks overjoyed at his new strength!

I hope when this is all over that all the videos can be strung together in one clip so people can see that there IS hope if their Tripawd needs a leg surgery. We'd be happy to help with that project so just bark at us. Thank you so much for sharing all the big steps in his recovery. It's a joy to watch and know things are going so well. 

Kudos to Sally, Frankie and Myrtle, the dynamic trio! clap
