Nala also lives on in our computer, the photo above has been our screen saver for a long time. Along with the photo of me (Mogley) when I was just a puppy and I was cold, wet, tired and curled up in a beach chair at the annual Golden Retriever Rescue Reunion Picnic and Swim Party.
Another reader has offered to loan an assistance harness for Boo Boo. They also have a doggie wheel chair. Thanks so much, we are still working on getting Boo Boo to accept help. He still thinks he has to be macho and walk by himself and when his assistance canvass shopping bag goes around him he does not want to walk anymore. We hope a little more time and he will get the idea. We may need to take up the offer of a lifting assistance harness, but lets see if the bag works out.
The Paw Challenged One is trying to take a movie of Boo Boo walking so you can see how much he has to struggle to move. With his broken legs having healed crooked, it has put sideways pressure on his ankles and they are twisting. His pain pills and anti-inflammatory pills help, but there is still a lot to hurt in those poor legs. His struggle does not keep him from being close at all times, he considers being underfoot to be his assigned task in life. As Boo Boo says, "It takes a big dog to fill a hallway". He is the most talented speed bump we have ever had grace the living room floor.
Thanks so much to our readers for helping out the rescue cause.
