Tule is a 9 to lab with front right leg amputation 8 weeks ago. He was back in full form retrieving ducks this week!
He went out to the duck blind at 6 weeks, made a couple short retrieves at 7 weeks.
When I was told he needed this surgery I thought his hunting days were over. I make him rest between retrieves but he goes at full speed.
I just want others to know, it is not the end when your fur baby has this surgery.
I want to post a video or pic but cant figure out how.

How amazing! That is really super news for you and for him – I will find you the technical post that talks about photos and videos and share!
We can’t wait to see these!
On October 27, 2016, nearly 6 months after amputation, and 18 months since his cancer likely started, we lost Pofi to a recurrence of Soft Tissue Sarcoma in his spine quite suddenly. His Daddy and I miss him terribly along with his canine sister, Mia, and two feline siblings, Lucia and Cliff.

Good for you for making him rest- I’m sure he doesn’t like that. Its always wonderful to hear that a dog can get back to doing something you thought might not happen again.
Have you seen Bart’s story? Another inspirational pup who actually earned a hunting title after his amp!
And for videos- I post them from YouTube. You just click on share, copy the url that is displayed, then paste it into a blank line in your forum post.
Can’t wait to see Tule in action! I love seeing dogs do a job that they love to do.
