Well it is official I have been told I have no muscle! Which in reality is a good thing because now we know…everyone always tells my mom that I am too SKINNY…but my mom knows she has to keep my weight down and feels I am just right, you can’t see my ribs, but what we found out from my very special visit from Mr. Tony, the CCRT is the reason I look so skinny is because I have NO Muscle in my lower back, butt, or my existing rear leg! Ok maybe NO is a slight exaggeration because if you follow my blog you know I have made great strides from where I was to where I am now, so there is some muscle there but I just don’t have as much muscle as other dogs!
I won’t let that stop me though, we are dedicated to getting me to BE MORE DOG, it will just take me longer than most, but that is ok, I have my whole life! We have been doing lots of the right things so far, which made my mom feel good, but in reality we were not building new muscle, we were just maintaining the little muscle that I have. We added some really tough exercises (tougher on my mom, she will be getting a work out also) that will make me use my lower back and hind end more!
Mr. Tony also made a really good point about me not being born with any muscle, so unlike Tripawds that had good muscle structure going into an amputation, I didn’t have that at all, so we really are starting at the beginning, but we will get there and the next time my mom takes me for a photo shoot you won’t see my back end sloping down like it is in this photo! I will stand strong and tall!
