The Steven's Rehab :)

I had several people email me privately about Even and how her rehab was going, so I thought I would give you an update :) Even is 4 months post-op and doing great! We have, just recently, been able to add tunnels to her rehab, we are up to 6 tunnel recalls and 6 regular recalls. No issues with soreness or lameness at all :) I have a feeling she will get to really increase her exercise when we have a recheck this coming Tuesday. Today was 40 degrees outside, so I thought, why not let her run outside, the footing is good, the sun is out and she was a HAPPY dog! I have no idea how I will be able to call her off a tunnel if I ever do agility with her, but whatever right? :)


She is also getting two, 30 minute leash walks a day, plus ball work. Several people have also emailed me wanting me to take a video of what I am doing with Even, so I did that. I took it by myself, so I didn't realize until afterwards that I had chopped my and Even's heads off, but you can still get the idea :) If you watch the video to the very end you will see WHY I chose not to do another take on ball work for this day...I had a bit of an "issue" to deal with :) Ah Even...always keeping me on my toes...you can't help but laugh at her...


Even is Brilliant...that is all I can say :) I love this dog...

LMAO!!!! Ok, seriously, thank you so much for making the ball work video! I was learning so much until the end when I burst out laughing so hard! I had no idea THAT was coming! If that is how ball work is supposed to go, we've been doing it totally wrong! LOL!!

Your ball is much more jiggly and bouncy than mine - looks like more of a work out for Even. Maybe mine has too much air in it? I do have an egg and not the peanut-shaped ball.

Maybe too much rocking for Even on this day huh. Might think twice about sailing with that girl! lol. It was good to see, well not the end, but she is doing so well. Most importantly she is so happy doing her tunnel recalls. Pure joy in Even's face running across the yard!

LMAO Monique!!!!

Yeah Kiwi...I was sort of gaining my composure until she started licking the therapy ball...then I just lost it...she is so special :)

Chris--I just have mine blown up to what it says on the ball...so not sure. I like the peanut balls a lot. It is a great workout for her for sure :) Hope you got something out of the video...like how NOT to get your dog to choke on a cookie and barf during exercise :)
