On the 16th, Farley had his third round of chemotherapy; he seemed to tolerate it well, but today upchucked his breakfast so I gave him a Cerenia

He now has a new rehab helper in the form of 4 y/o Echo who came home two weeks ago from an extended field training and testing trip (to Georgia); Echo is very active and motivates Farley to get up as well. I can tell he is stronger in that rear leg-best rehab ever!! I have a brief video of the two of them, but can't figure out how to post it here

Cant wit to see the video.

So check your upu tube and tap public as opposed to private.  That's  a out as te hie as I can get.  If that doesn't  work, someone  here will help uou.

Sorry Farley  couldn't  keep his breakfast down, but sou ds like hes doing okay now👍

Thanks-the video is now at the end of my note
I just realized that I took this short video after I gave Farley a dose of Cerenia so he's somewhat sedated; I'll try to get another video when Farley is more active

Hey Christine, we'd love to see the video. It's still marked as private.

Hope he's feeling better today. sf-kiss

I didn't realize my last video of my two dogs together was not public-I've fixed that

Today, Farley had another visit by Marta; she did some massage and also some acupuncture with b12

She introduced the sit-stand-sit exercise to strengthen his leg

Farley has his fourth and last chemotherapy infusion next week so I'll soon be able to get him out around other dogs (he definitely had the mysterious respiratory infection which started the beginning of September, caused pneumonia, was treated with two different antibiotics (doxycycline and clavamox) and has slowly cleared). He is still occasionally coughing (it sounds like he's clearing his throat) so I'm not worried about other dogs

No question that the presence of my Toller, Echo, has helped get Farley up and around; now I need to do his nails and continue working on his coat

Cute video of Farley being  auch a good student. Enjoyed seeing the quick clip  of Farley and Echo together. 😎

Farley was a top field dog and was on a 2+ month training and testing trip to the upper Midwest  over the summer. The pro had some dogs from Oregon on his truck; at least one other dog on the truck was coughing when I got Farley home August 31 (I live in Western Washington)

I love it! You can see on that last second or two how he corrected his sit to get into a proper stance. What a smart boy!

Wow had no idea that what he had was that respiratory virus. EEEEK! Thank Dog he overcame it, especially with all he's been through. He is a CHAMP!!!!
