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."

Water therapy works wonders, I am so glad it is doing its job on Walter. Glad he got his shoe and can make it through the next phase of recovery.

I love his lead blog pic, he has such a beautiful face.

Hi Wally! Love the new shoe! It looks like it's a perfect fit and I can't wait to see you walking around with it on.

A take on Paolo Nutini's "New Shoes" just for you:

Hey, I put my new shoe on and suddenly everything's right,
Hey, I put my new shoe on and everybody's smiling - it's so inviting,
Oh, short on money but long on time,
Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine,
And I'm running late,
And I don't need an excuse,
'cause I'm wearing my brand new shoe.

Stubby xoxo

That is awesome, Walter! What a great new shoe. You gotta let your mom get a good photo of it, so she can show everyone.

That's great that his bad leg is almost fully on par with his good leg! Amazing what the water tank helped him to accomplish. I'm so happy for his new shoe coming in to help him out.

OMG WALLLLY cutest. booty. ever. BOL!

Pee-S we saw a funny shirt at Target that was a doggie shirt and made to look like a janitor-or-bowling style shirt (you know with the name patch) and said WALLY... it was size S but if it was M or L we would've bought it for you!!!!

Pearl said...

Wheeeeeee! The new shoe is soooo cool!

Walter, have I told you lately how proud I am of you?! You are such a little fighter. I am just overwhelmed with joy as I watch your recovery!

Harry Pugalicious said...

Yay, Wally! I's so happy that you gots your shoe! You are such an inspiration to all of us pugs. You teaches us that we can do whatever we wants if we just works hard!

So, I's gonna keep trying to open the refrigerator - and when I do I's gonna have you to thank!

Seriously... me and the Mom are really happy to see you doing so great!

Walter, your new shoe is amazing! And I'm sure that (along with that awesome water therapy) will have you scampering around in no time! Great to hear about the muscle mass recovery!! Oh, and Stubby, what an awesome poem for Walter and his new shoe!!

Stella and Gunther said...

Walter, we spent the morning reading through your blog. What an inspiration!
There is a gal named where we live who's dog was hit by a truck while she was playing. It was a very similar accident to yours, however her dog had to have his rear leg removed. Because there were no physical therapy facilities for dogs in our area, Chris turned part of her home and her pool into what is now known as "Splash". Aqua and physical therapy for dogs. Her dog runs around the beach with us (she's a lab, we're lucky if we can keep up) and has totally recovered from her accident. We can't wait to tell her about your blog!
