Thanks Kymmie I think she is lovely too but I would like a better picture of her someday. Today, I tried for like 5 minutes. I just don't have the patience to sit there and wait for her to swim into the lighter area of the tank for a photo. lol
Oliver my Rottie is a rescue boy. I have had him for 5 years now. He had a broken jaw and leg when I got him at 5 months old. He was brought in to be euthanized but I got him instead. His poor leg has had some issues and last year he tore his CCL (ACL in humans) The vet said, we could try resting it and maybe it would heal enough without surgery. It got a lot better but then, he ran an it snapped. He had a 100% tear and also a torn meniscus. He had a TPLO surgery to heal it. I am now topping the $5,000. mark for surgery on this leg this time and his therapy. No sense in doing all this and not doing the therapy to get him stronger.
You can see his sad little shaved leg in the photo. This is exactly 3 weeks after surgery. He is still very sore but I am hopeful. He is truly the sweetest boy in the world. He would gently nibble the earlobes of any stranger while sitting on their lap. :)
