So happy to see him like that. It's easy to forget Labs are real tough nuggets. Because they're so gentle that hides the fact they are actually rock. Keep on improving, Murphy :thumbs:

Update,,, he hadnt been eating after we left and really dicnt want to do much but today he was brought out in harnesses and although both front and rear left leg still wonky hes actually moving them along with good legs, his tail was wagging like feck too when he saw us,,hes doing toilet without help too,,,, so theyve made a decision that after visit with physio tomorrow hes coming home cos they reckon hes more motivated when with us rather than them,,, so hard work begins tomorrow after lots n lots of cuddles

Great news John, they are right he probably will heal quicker at home.

Especially with all the fuss he is going to get. :thumbs:

He had his 1st physio today,session was exercise legs,then laser therapy on muscles in legs and neck,followed by a look at him walking whilst supported with harnesses and finally a go on the treadmill in the hydrotherapy pool,at 1st he had a bit of a swim then gently coaxed his legs onto treadmill he soon got the hang of it,,oh followed by a shampoo shower,seen by vet also they are pleased with his progress.He is started just over last 2 days to put his rear leg down into correct position albeit no strength (yet),hes still scared of trying to use his front leg although whilst doing his exercise with this one it does feel a lot stronger than his rear one.He still get really frustrated at home and in constant need of attention though oh and foxes in our back garden doing his head in lol.but looking promising now,,oh and he slept for full 5 hours when he got home today too,,totally knackered

Wee update,, came home and was giving him his usual fussing over,,he rolled onto belly and when i positoned his rear leg in correct position he stood up,he fell the feck right over again but thats 1st time in 2 weeks hes more or less stood with very little help,,,,hes trying it often now and god forgive me but i was p*****g myself laughing at him cos another attempt to stand he went on his side and after looking at me he looked at his rear legs n barked,,as if telling them to bloody work,,,n talking of barking his voice sounds different??? Have to mention go vet on tuesday.

Let me ask you one question. Is your money that good. Will it buy you forgiveness. Do you think that it could. I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul.
