Today is Rudy’s one month ampuversary! Amazing, amazing, amazing! It’s time to do the happy hoppy three legged dance! I lovemy Rudy dog and am so proud of how he’s adjusted to life on three legs!! We celebrated (along with our cat Dexter) this morning with stinky sardines, belly rubs and singing. Ok so it’s similar to what most days are like!

Here’s some photos taken in the last couple of days:

My sweet Rudy has been with me for so many years, we’ve done so much together and he has been there with me though many joyful and challenging times. I’m so glad that I was able to be there for him when he needed me most. It’s the least I can do for my furry son right?!

Rudy’s mostly back to his routine of coming to sleep in his bed in our bedroom at night and that makes me smile. Rudy is always ready to remind us of when it’s past his meal time and of course when it’s time for walkies! His hair is slowly growing back in and he still looks fairly naked on his hind area where he had his surgery and where he had his fentanyl patch. He has a tan undercoat so you can’t really see his hair growing in.

Yeahhappy hoppy day for my big goofy Rudyroo!

    Isn’t it amazing what can happen in a month?

    We’re doing the hoppy, stinky sardine, funky chicken and ice cream celebration dance just for you today Rudy! Hoppy Ampuversary!

    Awesome, Rudy, simply awesome. Happy hoppy one-month ampuversary – you are doing great.

    We don’t know the stinky sardine dance 🙂 (perhaps Jerry can make a video so we can learn that one), but Catie, Riley and I are very skilled at the funky chicken so we’ll do some foot stompin’ and arm flappin’ in your honour.

    And extra treats, of course.

    Rudy’s looking great! Was there a squirrel outside that window to grab his attention so? Hoppy Ampuversary, Rudy! Extra sardines for everyone, even the cat!

    I have to figure out some of this photo stuff, because I want to send you a picture of one of our angel dogs, Zoot. She was a rottie mix of some sort, and she and Rudy look like they could be siblings. I’ll try to figure out how to send it to you.

    I was going to send you the photo of our dog who looked a lot like Rudy but I can’t figure out how. I don’t have a flickr account so I can’t do it that way. I can send it through private email if you want. You should be able to send me a PM to let me know if that’s what you’d like me to do. Sorry I’m not the most technologically astute person, but I’ll figure out a way!
