Awwwww, poor thing. But very resourceful of you indeed!

I saw an episode with Cesar Milan addressing the same problem. Your case might be a tad different since a Newf can't really just jump in and out like the dog in this episode.

If that doesn't melt your heart, I don't know what will!

They have such personalities, don't they?
5  BPO Medical Forum / Medical Conditions & Diseases / Re: Here we go for TPLO on: January 03, 2009, 02:30:59 PM
Rosie had TPLO surgery back in September 2007 on her back right leg. They say recovery should take about 8-10 weeks from TPLO, but our experience was longer, perhaps due to the Newf size/weight. It was certainly very tough for us and Rosie during recovery... she had to be confined for at least a couple months in our living room, we had to assist her with a sling when she'd take potty breaks to reduce the weight she put on her healing leg, and she couldn't take any walks for a long time. Looking back, it seemed like a lot of work at the time, but it was all worth it; to try to get our Rosie back to health.

We did have a complication arise about 6 months after her TPLO. She'd pretty much recovered back to her normal self, when we noticed a bump starting to grow on the inside of her leg. They found that the bone plate installed during the TPLO had gotten infected and needed to be removed. The good news was that the plate had done its job and her bone had healed such that it no longer needed the assistance from the bone plate. However, she still had to go under the knife again to have it removed. We're told this is not normally the case... that bone plates put in during TPLO are usually left alone post-TPLO (unless they get infected).

If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message. We'd be glad to share our experiences.

That was one crazy clean, organized pantry! I thought I was organized, but I'm starting to think not.

Christmas road trips are always fun. We drove with Rosie from Texas to Michigan, and back, last year. The loooong road trip was made tolerable with Rosie around. It's good that you had a dog-friendly home to arrive to and that Clifford could meet some new friends on the road.

Rosie doesn't howl... but oh the snoring!

Perhaps they figured they were already on the 'Nice' list this year, and evaluations for the 'Nice' list for 2009 don't start until the new year.

12  Great Pyrenees / Great Pyrenees Pictures / Re: Mmmm... I Loves spaghetti sauce!! on: December 02, 2008, 02:13:12 PM
When I was a kid, my mom used to always feed our landlord's 3 perfectly white dogs with spaghetti sauce leftovers... not a good idea! I'm sure our landlord would be puzzled by his dogs' red muzzles.

Might as well fill it with water and put some Koi in there.

I discovered a line of black spots on Rosie's belly one day too. False alarm though. It just happened to be accumulated dirt from her laying on her tummy outside.
