I am so proud of my big brave boy! It has been about 3.5 weeks since Neiman's amputation, and 1.5 weeks since the staples and drain were removed. He has been taking me for short jogs down our street most evenings, and yesterday we took a long walk in a nearby park for the first time since fall. He was so hoppy to be out and about in our favorite place! I can't believe how fast he hops along - he really challenged me to keep up! Of course, we both needed a good rest afterwards.[Image Can Not Be Found]

Hmmm... can't tell without the Image URL you're trying to use. Be sure to right click on the image itself to copy the file location of the image. Pasting the URL of the page a photo is displayed on will not work. The image must also be publicly viewable and not in a private album or gallery.

If all else fails just paste the link to the page the image is on and we'll fix it for you or people can follow the link to view the photo.
