pretty nurses make everything OK.

Walter LOVED the vet. I went to get him at seven and he looked great. happy to see me but not too happy, like when dogs hated where they just were and you're saving them. He just looked like had a good day. He was all clean, already taken his PM meds and he seemed quite fine with the loving adoration he was receiving from all the pretty young nurses. Go Wally!

He moved himself around in his playpen today! I have been having to pick him up and re-arrange him every time he wanted to shift, but today he flipped himself! YES!

I had a lovely meeting (lunch meeting) and I had a BEER! First beer, or social beverage of any kind in weeks and weeks. It felt like we were Las Vegas.

I felt much better after I picked Walter up and am looking into the possibility of dropping him off now and again so I can work. I think as he improves he won't need such constant care, so it would be temporary. It's nice to know I have the option.

Now everyone take a moment please if you can and picture Walter like this!

Heather - I'm so happy to hear that Walter had a good day at the vet. I wish I lived closer and could spend the day with Walter. I would take care of him and keep him company.

Walter will be jumping hurdles in no time. You will have trouble keeping up with him when he is fully recovered because he'll have a lot of catching up to do.

Glad to hear Walter and you are doing good!

Wow, it's amazing how fast dogs can recuperate from ilness or accidents. If it was me who had the accident I would probably still be crying and I am sure I wouldn't even try to move a finger; and Walter is already moving around and sitting up!

Glad to hear that both you and Walter had a good day. I am sure it did you both good to have a change of scenery. It's wonderful news to hear that he is moving around a bit on his own.

Wally! We are so happy to hear you are doing better today! We've asked our readers to send you all the juju they can muster. We're rooting for you and your mama!

Is there anyway we could help you with the vet bills? I know the cost of treating a shattered pelvis is not chump chain. We'd be happy to contribute something in order to help alleviate some of the financial stress.

Please let us know if there is anything we can do.

I'm so glad to hear his daycare day at the vet went well. Sounds like they love him there and he returns that affection.

Sounds like a good idea to let him go there more so you can both have a change of pace (and you can work).

Love the agility picture - hope to see him doing that again one day! Sweet Wally - give him some pug hugs and kisses for us!

Heather, thank you for calling me back and giving me the update about Walter. my life is changed, but you and Walter are the ones who are going thru so much. I keep re-living the accident in my mind. Why didn't i stay at work instead of going home for a break? I so much wish it would have been different. I still don't know what it is I am to do for him, but i hope it will come to me soon. maybe you have some thoughts. for now, my prayers are constant for his healing, and i send positive thoughts to both of you. sarah

Heather, we are so glad to hear Walter is doing well. We are also glad to hear you got out of the house for a little bit. You need time for yourself jsut as much as Walter. You are both going through this trauma and need to heal. Don't forget to take care of yourself while you are taking care of your little man!!!

I am so glad the vet sitting worked out. You sound so different now then you did a post or two ago, lighter almost. :)
I just bet he loved all the extra attention from the nurses!

So glad Walter is able to move around abit to make himself comfortable.

GO WALTER, GO! I know you'll be leaping around like that again soon!

I think occasional vet-days could be a PERFECT option for both Mommy and Walter!

Well, if Walter flipped himself over by himself, we are sure he will be doing hurdles soon.
