Rory Update

Howdy Mates.  Friday morning here.  Our daughter was leaving after her birthday celebrations last night and we were saying goodbye at the front door.  Heard a strange bark from Rory and came back inside to see him STANDING UP in the middle of the family room!!! This morning he stood again.  This is such an amazing thing as he has not been able to get himself upright since his trauma.  

His walking has improved (still with help of the sling) and left back leg is strengthening.  The left back foot is still turning under at times when he walks, so we continue to flip it back to its normal position especially when he stands to drink and eat. 
We're going to get there mates.  

This sweet girl misses playing bitey face.

Even through Rory's rehab , he still makes us laugh.
Check out his flagpole tail!  Sorry Rory, hehe.
(and yes he has movement in his tail, it still wags for us).

Take care all.  No worries, and love, Carol 


  1. Great News! Keep up the good work, Rory! We're all rootin' fur ya!

  2. Fantastic news! And a wagging tail is always a good thing!
