Another Flash Update…

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

Flash had surgery 6/3/10 and came home the next day. Dr. Beene repaired the damage to the ligaments in Flash’s right knee.  He is doing great and is confined to his kennel in the house and he’s on a leash when he goes outside for pee & poo. He’s already beginning to put his foot down and  put weight on his leg.

I’m hoping he will continue to heal up quick. Flash is such a good boy.


Flash update…

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

After xrays and a visit to the vet, it was determined that both of Flash’s knees will need surgery to fix his ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). If we do nothing, Flash will face pain and arthritis in his back legs for the rest of his life. With the surgery, he will be 90% back to normal, with a much quieter lifestyle. Dr. Logan Beene will be doing the surgery on Thursday, 6/3/10 and we have full confidence in his decisions. His common sense philosophy of veterinary medicine has earned our respect and trust. We love Flash so much and he has brought us love in return. We know that recovery will be very time consuming and the surgery will cost a whole lot.

Flash is such a good boy, especially with the three grandsons. They can climb all over him and pull on his tail, ears and feet and he remains calm. Frank calls Flash his “love sponge” because he will soak up all the attention you give him.
