Walter's best time in the water tank!



Wally did 8 minutes in the water tank at TC rehab today! You can see him walking on the underground treadmill as the water supports his body and keeps him from tipping over. Also a vet tech in the back works his back legs so the nerves get used to the motion and grow to suit whats being required of them (Another reason it's important to keep in physio recovery, repetition is everything.)

Before all this, Walter had a morning romp in the back yard (only a couple of minutes, he's still on restricted movement) then a Strollie ride, (he's all yappertons at the poor neighbor dogs, who don't understand why Walter has to dish out such justice from inside a stroller) and then a nap before Physical therapy.

At the vet Walter's patient file says
WEIGHT: 22 lbs
BREED: Pug
AGE: 2 1/2 yrs
STATUS: TENTATIVE (Unknown if he will be crippled or recovered)

(I however feel it should say STATUS: SUPER PUG!)

LOVE the video. We agree that his file at the vet's should say Superpug. He really is a remarkable little pug :)

Awesome video! Walter sorta looks at one point like he's thinking.... "I'm walking, I'm walking, I'm walking, but the scenery never changes....and I never seem to get anywhere.... this is some mighty strange walking!"

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Heather & Walter! I love the video! As we watched it mom kept saying "Go Walter go" and I kept barking. You are doing great and your status definitely needs to be changed.

Tenative sounds so wishy-washy - which you are not. Don't those guys know who you are? Walter the super pug in da house!
