My New Beds

My mom really likes the posts on Tripawds.com about physical therapy ideas to do at home, because she really wants to help me get and stay strong and knows that my daily walks are not enough. Even though I try to tell her over and over that my wrestling with my pack members is all I need, she doesn’t believe me.

My mom was really excited about finding a local certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist via the post http://downloads.tripawds.com/2013/03/07/conservative-management-alternative-to-leg-knee-and-hip-surgeries-for-tripawds/ .  The CCRT she found will come to our house and make up a plan for me to get stronger, he uses the equipment that we have here.

Since I don’t like walking on the couch cushions, and couch cushions are a great idea for an unstable surface to walk on to increase my core strength.  I  would much rather lay on the couch cushions, she found these dog beds (well really a friend found them for us) and my mom got some and has practiced with me walking across them. I do like them better than couch cushions, but after taking a couple trips over the dog beds,  I CIMG1567 hannah new beddecided to take a break and lay on them also!

Hannah is a 7 mos old purebred Plush Coated German Shepherd Dog. Hannah was turned over to Coastal when she was a 4 mos old puppy. She was born with a defective left rear leg, it was straight, but it was straight underneath her so she couldn't use it, it just interfered with her ability to get around, due to the fact that she was hindered in her ability to get around whoever had her before Coastal did not feed her properly so her bones didn't develop properly and her right leg has some orthopedic issues, but Coastal works with the best vets around and Hannah's orthopedic doctor has NO doubt at all that once she has her surgery(ies) she will live a long and happy life! Hannah has lived in a foster home since Coastal took her under their wing and has thrived. In February she had the left rear leg amputated and is healing up beautifully and making up for lost time, full of puppy life and vigor. She is now getting the proper nutrition that every puppy deserves.
