Pictures soon

Sorry no pics this week, My camera/phone broke and I have to grab a new one. Wally's doing good, building up time in his shoe. He has to wear it just like you'd wear a new shoe, just a bit here and there so it breaks in and doesn't rub his foot raw. That said, when he has it on, he has remarkable stability, the rubber bottom of the she even allows him to cruise around on hardwood floors. Ha! Anyone need some floor runners???

REDONKULOUS PRESENT ALERT! My dear friend Heather Thornswood sent me a Limoges pug with a bandaged foot. WHAT?? Have you ever??? She did such a good job with the tiny gauze bandage I thought Limoges had actually started making pugs with bandaged feet, but no, she meticulously did this part herself! This fine little porcelain hobgoblin will have to be included in the "museum exhibit" when walter and I hit the road on our "WALTER WINS THE WORLD" tour! (formerly known as "Walter Takes America Tour." Renamed for our international friends who we also need to meet!) Thank you for the gift Heather T! I was so afraid of breaking it, It took me awhile to even take it out of the box! Walter is IN LOVE with her! I think he thinks you sent him a little Geisha Pug who must do his bidding...and he's into it.

The New Shoe!

 The new shoe is here! I'm still learning how to get it on Wally's foot. What a wiggle worm! I was hardly able to get this one picture! But I think this will really give him alot more mobility. He was walking around really well in it! Also he did TWENTY MINUTES in the water tank today, when he started 3 mos ago, he was hardly being able to do two! the Rehab clinic measured the muscle mass in his bad leg, and it's increased so much it's only 1cm behind the good one! Can you believe how much walking in the water tank has improved his injuries? I can't!

"In this world, there is nothing softer or thinner than water. But to compel the hard and unyielding, it has no equal. The weak overcomes the strong, the hard gives way to the gentle. This everyone knows."

So Much Sassafrass!

Sorry for another long-time posting, I spent this week catching up from last! I tell you what guys, our pal Walter has hit a new level of health! Everyone is in unanimous agreement. He all of a sudden started eating more (He'd leave his bowl full almost all the time and just take treats, maybe nibble at his food) but now he's clearing the bowl out and its everything we can do to keep him from standing on his hind legs! Thats right!!!! I came in and walter was so busy sassing me "get me out of scamperland! Now!!" and he stood full weight on his hind legs. I nearly fell over rushing to him so he would get back off!! Also, he wants to RACE around the backyard. It's actually problematic. I tell you what, he gets that new shoe this next week and it isn't a moment too soon! I can hardly get a picture of him, he's permanently on the move. But look how well his hair is growing in!! AND, check out that back foot!! He's standing like a lil champion. He looks so good. Every day I thank God he's alive. It's just a miracle.

Back on our feet and dukes up!

WOAH! Whatever flu/cold/infectious plague is going around side-walloped me and sent me for a LOOP! Fevers, body aches, stuffy head, the works. Of course Walter enjoyed the additional space heater laying next to him. (that would be me sweating with fever)

I'm better now but we are low on supplies since I haven't been shopping, we're out of everything! oooh is walter mad. All those treats everybody sent gave been CONSUMED by king walter and haha, jokes on me, b/c Wally is now addicted to treats I have no idea how to get! Anyone who knows where to get those yogurt-kisses, those are like crack to him now. Also the low-fat treats with cookie monster on the front? Also crack. I won't even try to replicate the venison bites from Canada. He'll just have to dream about those.

But the best news is I was able to have a good old fashioned tussle today with wally and his lil puggie here, this is post-tussle, when wally is like "Oh yeah, I beat him goood."

I hope everyone is well, I've missed you all and now that I've crawled back to my computer, I can check up on your blogs! Heavens, I'm out of date with whats happening!

MORE big news, Walter was fitted for his new shoe! He gets it in ten days and we'll see if the doc allows him out of scamperland. Either way, I think he can wear this new shoe more often and wont walk on his foot wrong. We don't know what the shoe looks like, but we're hoping it's like a wingtip oxford. Our little man's got to look sporting!
