Limping Doggie Going Home Again.

Joseph and I went to the vet to fetch Lucky this evening. When I checked back the last video on Lucky, I have mentioned him as Jacky in the video, LOL, please forgive my typo error. I did that a lot lately, I think I need glasses.

Anyway, back to Lucky, the plate/pin has been removed but unfortunately he is not using his leg at all. You can see that on the video below. I am sad looking at him as you know, my main intention is to make him complete again. I guess I just need to accept he is not going back to norm again. From the chat I had with some friends on my ustream chat room, some had recommended massage and acupuncture. Unfortunately my vet doesn't provide such services. I already told Chong Kooi, the adopter to try loosen the joint slowly and gently by massaging it daily whenever he is free. I certainly hope he will do that as they might help in a way.

It is good to see the dog so happy. It might be simply that he has got so used to not using the leg it is second nature now to walk like that.

What if his new owner took him to the beach for a quick swim in the sea? If he was in shallow water maybe the owner could go in with him to make sure he was ok?

However it works though, you can congratulate yourself for a job well done, because, even not using the leg, he will not be in the terrible pain he must surely have been in before with such a horrific break in the bone. And, that is all down to you.
