I took Bud for his checkup with the specialist after surgery 2 months ago (May 3, 2007). They said he is doing great and now i'm adding stairway walking (one landing) for him (strength). He are still walking (15 minutes max.) with him 3x day.
Now we do this for the next 6 weeks then we go back for another checkup. This could take it up till 3-5 months for recovering. I also got him a few pounds down off him and they are happy for that. He was never fat but after winter and surgery and had a "few" pounds on him. He is looking good!!!
