I am now down to attending physical therapy once a week. Yesterday, I actually took a few independent steps while walking on the water treadmill! I haven't been walking like that since before my knee surgery. I'm really looking forward to cooler weather and being able to run around outside more with my foster brother. That also means snow will be coming soon and I LOVE to run around playing in the snow! Happy Fall folks!
Hello! Bunny here checking in! I have been super busy over the past several months having surgery on both of my knees. I'm now recovered from the surgery and they are feeling much better. I am now back to attending physical therapy to see if they can get me to walk using both rear legs independently. In the long run, that is what will be so much better for me so that I am not putting all of the stress on my front legs. But, I may just be in the routine of "bunny hopping" everywhere and this may just be what I will do forever! W e are also working on strengthening my core with exercises several times a day at my foster home. I am fast and can run around the back yard chasing my foster brother without any problems! I don't even understand why he doesn't hop like I do. The Surgeon said I'm quite special and he really cannot predict what exactly my future will hold for me as far as my mobility is concerned. I'll just keep working hard and doing my exercises to strengthen up!
I enjoy spending time with the 2 younger children that come here often. They are 2 and 5. However, I do not like when they decide they want to get rough with one another. I'm afraid someone is going to get hurt and I like to jump in to break them up so they don't hurt each other. I don't understand why they want to fight so much. I'm gently trying to teach them to keep their hands to themselves. I just have to bark at them and run over and they understand what I'm saying and stop what they're doing.
I'm just going to continue hanging out here in my foster home with my foster family and siblings until my forever home finds me!
02/19/2016 This is Bunny. She was given this name because of the unique way she gets around. She will "bunny hop" everywhere she goes if allowed. Bunny has scoliosis and other spinal abnormalities and is currently having physical therapy to build up her muscles as she is experiencing some discomfort. Her foster family affectionately calls her "Bun Bun". This girl hasn't met anyone she does not like. She's friendly with everyone she meets and always happy to greet them. She is house broken and crate trained. She prefers to sleep in bed with someone if allowed. Bunny will climb up on your lap or lay on top of you any time she gets the chance. She is currently living in a home with a male and female resident dog. Initially, she was very guarded around them and would snap at them if they went to sniff her. They are now getting along without any issues. Bunny is also frequently exposed to children from 2 through 18 and loves all of them. She loves to run around outside in the fenced in yard and play, but will come in and take a nice long nap on the sofa in front of the fire. Do you have room on your sofa for her?
