Did you know that BoB the DoG had the same back surgery as Emma?

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and BoBthe DoG lovers: Wow, BoB the DoG is a very famous hound on the internet. He is almost as famous as our Mayor, Chaps and his Mommy probably thinks himz is more famous. LOL!

Well, BoB went down in the back a few weeks ago and I immediately e-mailed his Mommy with information about the surgery. I also directed her to Emm’s sub-blog on the subject because we thought it might help BoB. It is so scary with a hound goes down.

I am thrilled to report that BoB did great and is now home. He is not walking on his own yet, but that will come in time I feel very sure seeing the progress he is making. He started his water therapy yesterday.


Emma never did the water therapy. She was so quick to get back up that my therapist said she should just start taking walks. But for BoB this is perfect. He is getting the exact benefit he should which is low impact re-training the legs to walk in the back. I am so proud of himz.


Here you can see the scar, the same exact one Emma had. Wow! Look at himz standing!

Look at me Mommy! I think I can, I think I can!


BoB’s Mommy states, “Physical therapy went wonderful, the place is top notch and very professional and kind..the first appointment was with a doctor and the PTguy Ken..they didn’t rush us at all and answered all the questions the other place should have..when I mentioned how often Bob was being they jumped right up and did both a urinalysis and a ultrasound of his bladder..to which the doctor announced he had a ranging bladder infection…poor bob but at least now he is on antibiotics for 21 days!!! The they showed us exercises for to do at home, checked his reflexes and then we went to the PT department..and Bob walked in the underwater treadmill..he was such a good boy, they are totally in love with my lovebug already..the PT guy says that Bob will benefit most by the treadmill so he is gonna cut the PT appoints in half (hense half as much money) and we are gonna start with just that…when we got there and they did the physical sttuff when I pressed if they thought Bob would walk they said that things looked good..after Ken saw him in the treadmill he said he was really sure he would since he did so good. Here are some pics of Bob and some short videos”

    Bob is such a sweetheart. I am so glad he is progressing to get to walk again. And getting rid of the bladder infection will make him feel so much better. Way to go Bob!
