Yesterday was the two week mark since Natasha’s surgery to repair her torn CCL. Yesterday was also an examination by the surgeon to review her progress. The verdict on her TPLO recovery?
The surgeon was very pleased with the speed of Natasha’s recovery. She has both the ability and desire to flex and use the knee – great signs. We had already weaned her off of the pain medication and antibiotics, so she is medication free.
The problem with her knee feeling so good is that it is also easy for her to damage the knee at this point by using it too quickly. So, as expected, we have four more weeks of crate time and short, escorted bathroom walks (with the sling) a few times a day. At that point, we will be able to start taking short walks without the sling.
So Natasha continues to get lots of one on one time with Hu-dad as she snoozes in a crate beside his desk all day. While she is a restless and bored, she does consider a round-the-clock human servant to be a big positive.

Undercarriage Dog Wash
Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
My Husky had the same surgery in 2021.
I’m thrilled to read that it is going so well for Natasha!
Something tells me the Queen will have that office space permanently, even after the restrictions are limited. Good bed fluffers are hard to come by!
What a good girl, still tolerating your sling! Hope you’re getting unlimited pettings from that servant of yours!
You go girl! Keep up the great work!!
Way to go girl!
Oh that is so great to hear!

Good job to everyone!! my big guy had TTA surgery 2 yrs ago. I don’t care to ever go through that again.
Yes. She’s the queen and you’re the servant.
Mom ‘n Ice both say: ‘way to go, ‘Tasha, so happy to hear how well you’re progressing, how well you’re healing. Just keep doing as the hu-Dad says, and be careful not to wreck anything, and another month or so, you should be ready for playing in the snow again.
