Snow Bunny

I never thought I would see Ivy run again like she did today. We have about 10 inches of snow on the ground here in Virginia. This is very unusual for our part of the state. We took her out on the golf course behind us to let her explore and she just ran through the white stuff with pure joy on her face for about 10 minutes. When she came in, she napped for a while, then wanted out again. I guess she likes the white stuff! Neither leg showed any sign of lameness or tenderness. She acts like a puppy, even though she is now a mature 8 year old diva! It has been almost two years since Ivy's first TPLO surgery.

    Amy, I ran across your blog when googling Dr. Pernell. My dog is at the end of 8 weeks in a cast and crate rest for a torn ligament in a toe. Though nowhere near the ordeal your dog went through, its been a long 8 weeks!

    We were lucky enough to be referred to Dr. Pernell when Indy injured his foot in training. We are now almost 4,000 miles away, and have followed his instructions religiously!

    Good luck to you and Ivy, thanks for posting the story. It could happen to any of our athletic dogs at any time.

    Our story appears in my blog at:
