That is cool about stretching his legs and bouncing. I could not picture, was he bouncing on his back or the usual way? Rajahs Mom got a mini trampoline for Rajah (117 lbs akita mix) and stood her on it and bounced her a little. She said it builds strength. I think it was one of the recommendations of the therapist at the time. Rajah did learn to walk again.
If you can get Skipper to where he can stand up to eat (I realize this may be beyond him right now) Sheri used a trick with Pete (Jack Russell) to help him walk where she put a string on his food bowl and pulled it to get him to take steps.
I can relate to the computer issues, my Internet was down yesterday from 2-9. When I left to do errands the City had a contractor trimming trees around the utility pole in the alley behind us. I am really glad because they were clear up around the transformer and all the wires (telephone, Internet) are attached there and every time there's a storm the branches whip around. Anyway, when I came home at 2 they were finishing up and my Internet cable was lying in the yard.
So I called Spectrum and they said they would work me in if I could stay home and wait for their call between 2 and 9, which meant I couldn't leave the house, couldn't even go work in the backyard or I wouldn't hear the phone. He got here after 8, worked as fast as he could (this guy was REALLY good, Denzel somebody, amazing to see how fast he put in a whole new cable) and we were using a flashlight as he finished up close to 9, but he did it.
Have you ever tried a surge protector for your computer so you don't have to unplug it? The new ones tell you when they are reaching end of life so you know if you are still protected.
