I am so happy that our story could help someone else. It really makes it seem like BoBo's misfortune wasn't in vain. I say BoBo's misfortune, but to be completely honest, if you asked him about his missing leg he would say "what leg?". The day he had his surgery and I went to see him I about fell out, I couldn't believe the decision we had made. But after that first rough spot things have done nothing but get better. He is almost completely recovered from the surgery and doing fantastic. As much as it makes me nervous, he is chasing the squirrels in the back yard, playing ball, and jumps on any person that comes in contact with.... We have made a few permanent changes as far as, he is on a multi vitamin and glucosamine, our friend made him a raised dog bed, and we don't let him go up and down stairs when we are not around (we have a million stairs)..... Life is wonderful and BoBo is loving every min. His quality of life has never been better!
