The on-going trials and tribulations of three border collies, the various foster dogs that have passed through our lives...and our crazy, triathlon obsessed Boss Lady....

All Cleared for Take-off!
So the Boss Lady and I went to see the surgeon on Wednesday for a check-up. The Boss Lady said I was all done with surgery (I hope so! I had run out of shoulders by this point!) and this was just to see how I've been healing. She said not to get my hopes up as I had a few weeks before I was due to be cleared for "light activities like leash-walking". I've been trying to tell her that I feel great and I am "good to go!" but she wasn't buying it.
So imagine my surprise when the surgeon said I was walking great and could have some light leash walking now - a whole 3 weeks ahead of schedule! I don't know who was more surprised - the surgeon or me. The Boss Lady said it really helped that I was eating a high quality raw diet and I got regular acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments. It must be so, because I am finally cleared for activity! Woo-hoo!!!
Crate rest for a border collie is a fate worse than death, so I can't wait to start running, jumping and playi-oops, the Boss Lady just reminded me that the surgeon said light activities like leash walkingonly.
Okay, I'll take what I can get for now. At least I know that I will be able to run and play soon!
