    It is so good to hear this great news for Kirk.
    He is such a good looking, and happy puppy.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    YAY!! Kirk is amazing!! You know what? I think his unique walk gives him a little more character. It looks like a little sashay

    Keep building those muscles, Kirk. You're making us all so proud!

    OMG... I just read this entire thread and I am just so shocked at all this sweet little boy had to endure! What a trooper he is! I kept seeing your siggie on other threads and love that happy face of his, so had to see what the link was about. He's just such a brave boy to have gone through so much and still have such a great personality.

    Big hugs to Kirk for all his hard work! I hope he keeps getting better and stronger every day.

    Your breeder sounds like a good person. You are lucky in that respect. I wouldn't be so quick to turn down refunds or help with the surgeries. You will be inundated with bills from that and from rehabilitation costs.

    My 6 yo collie has bilateral elbow dysplasia. He was diagnosed at 18 mos., too late for surgery because of arthritis that had already set in. Until a year ago, he did pretty well, although had to take some antiinflammatories at times. He always walks funny and limps quite a bit. Six months ago we began swimming and water therapy (treadmill under water). Also, physical therapy with exercises. He's been getting adequan shots also. The expense is enormous just from this and no surgery. But he is really improving and much stronger than he was. His balance is much better and his endurance greatly increased. He takes Previcox much more often now, but I'm happy with the results from the therapy. Definitely try Kirk with these things so his muscles don't atrophy like Bailey's did. We started late to remedy the situation.

    It's devastating to have our disabled dogs. My heart breaks when I watch him around other dogs and see what he cannot do. But he's a great dog and has excelled in other areas like pet therapy. He worked with kids who had cancer for 4 years.

    My breeder wasn't so nice. She never offered money, and she lied about the sibling not having these issues. In fact a litter brother was even worse off. She will not respond to my emails or calls. I have given up on her. I don't need her anymore. Unfortunately I had done research and was referred to her by reputable breeders. I paid a lot of money for Bailey and even with the problems, I'm so happy to have him.

    Here's a video of my other collie in the water tank helping his back arthritis:

    Water Therapy

    Good luck with Kirk. He is very lucky to have you as his mom to take such good care of him.
