April 7th. He had been limping the 5th & 6th. I squeezed his paw and looked for thorns or cuts. On the 7th I was determined to find this issue that caused him to limp so squeezed his paw all the way up to his leg. When I reached his humerus he yelped. I took him to petsmart got Tramadol and joint supplements.

Hey so glad you figured out the photo thing! He is one handsome, strong boy. I know he'll bounce back quickly and get that burliness back.
We will be thinking of you and sending healing thoughts your way. Please keep us posted.

Jackie, Angel Abby's mom
Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman. Tripawds blog, and a more detailed blog here. Please also check out my novel, What the Dog Ate. Now also in paperback! Purchase it at Amazon via Tripawds and help support Tripawds!
