OMD!! Just catching up on your amazing Oscar…..and he truly is amazing!!😀
I love the idea of different bedding for him so he can decide what feels best on his joints at different times. You two are doing such a good job of providing the best care possible during recovery.
It slu ss like your sweet boy has quite a determined person with a bit of stubbornness. Good traits to have dur recovery. He’ll do things his way and at his own pace! My Happy Hannah never wanted a anything to do with a towel sling. She saw it as a hindrance rather than a help.
I tell ua’ what. Oscar deserves a standing ovation for being able to stand on his own AND to be mobile!! Sometimes it takes larger dogs and more “mature” dogs a lot ,longer to stand on their own and get their sea legs.
Sloooow snd easy…Oscar is dojng great!!!!
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!

YEA FOR SENIOR PETS!
My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019. With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer. I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud! He will live forever in my Heart!
