It’s Time for A Kip-date

April 7, 2010

I spoke with Jill yesterday.  Our Kip is making the most amazing progress.  He is participating in hydro-therapy once a week (under water treadmill), and being given evey opportunity to locomote as he sees fit.  He is walking on his own for up to fifteen feet.  He has learned to get up the step from the indoor pool area to the living room by placing his front paws on the upper level, plopping his rear on the step, moving one back paw to the upper level, scootching his rear, getting the second rear paw up, and heaving himself into the room.  His surgeon is amazed by his progress.

He also has a sling and chases the birds out of the yard with a little support from one of his people.  Bless you Sarah, Jill, and Jim for loving our boy enough to help him learn to walk again.  This is one determined little Cardi — I am certainly learning life lessons from his efforts.
