Me be free, me be free, whee! Me went to see vet David the orthopaedic man yesterday. He watched me walk and trot, had a good feel of my knee and my hips, gave me my final Cartrophen injection and said me be all better! Me and mummy and daddy be so happy! Me can do walkies again and go back to classes and my knee should be good as new. He said it healed well as me be so good at staying quiet the last few weeks. Me went walkies last night, and two times today and me went to puppy class too. Me be sleepy now, but my leggy be fine, not even teeny limp, whee!

Me has also been doing training at home. Big Harry do training at same time as me as he not had much at his old house, and also he knows training = treats and he no wants to miss out!

Here we supposed to be doing sit. Big Harry be sitting already, me not quite there yet! See grooming table behind us? Yes, mummy been pulling my furs again!

Big Harry be doing a down here. Me be doing my sit waiting to be telled to do down. Do you see daddy's "waaaait" finger, tee hee!

Here we be doing our down. Daddy no let us have the treat until we stay down a certain amount of time, cos big Harry had bad habit of just bobbing up and down from sit to down, sit to down! Me thinks he has springs in his paws!

All gone! Treats are eated, but we has to wait until daddy say "OK" before we can get up.

Here be big Harry on our walkies this evening. It be dark, but it be very mild today. Mummy even putted washing to dry outside!

And me walking, whee! Me be bit crazy on walkies today cos me no have had walkies for so long. Me had to do lots of sniffiing and saying hello to every person and doggy! Do you see me has sticky in my mouthy?

We be tired when we getted home so we needed little nap before dinner. Remember big Harry's hidey hole under stairs?

Well me likes it lots, so me stealed it, tee hee! Big Harry be too much of gentleman to turf me out! Mummy says please no look at messy wall. This hidey hole used to be cupboard with door, and daddy mended wall where door was, but he be lazy bum bum and no painted it yet!

Don't be too sad for big Harry though, cos he be snoozing on sofa!

We needs to have big sleepies today, cos we have very exciting day tomorrow!

Mango said...

Walkies rock! Carrying a stick on walkies is even better.

Harry, man, you're an Airedale. If you are sleeping a lot you must be old like my Grandpa Angus was. He spent so much time in bed I forgot he was even there.


Finni said...

Woohoo, that is good news, Cassidy! So glad you've been discharged. May I say your mum is making a good job of pulling your fur too.
Harry, mate, you're a gent letting Cassidy have your den. Tho' the sofa is pretty good too.

Gus said...

Gus and Louie said...

You guys are really good at the sit and down stuff. Mom has been making us sit before we go out the back door. She said she was tired of getting run over on the way out. Of course Louie is a big suck up he sits right away. I have to be told a couple of times.

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Oh Cassidy...that video of ur crying in ur crattie broke our hearts...NO more surfin' have grown so much during ur jail time! How tall are you and how much do you weigh? Babystan hit the big 50 lbs. and is 23" at the shoulder. He's just about 9 months old now...not sure how much more he will grow. He's shorter and stockier than his tall and skinny bro.

So Harry's gonna be 11? WOOOOOT!!!

Time to pawty for that one!

Be good Girlfriend...Babystan can't wait till the pawty!!!

Gus and Louie said...

Yepper Louie is always jacking my stick.. I usually let him have it. I would much rather be fetching it out of the water..

Penny & Poppy said...

We're celebrating for you, Cassidy! Woo hoo! You are both doing very well with your commands! Harry looks very comfy on the sofa even though you hi-jacked his hidey hole.

See you at Mt. Hairy in the Poky-nose! It will be cold...dress warm!

I'm so happy you're free now! I bet your walkies are just the best now!! Just remember not to overdo it. Good work on your training with Harry. You both look great, and nothing beats the treat at the end of the trick. It's the only reason I do any of my tricks! He he!

Your pal,

Girl Girl Hamster said...

jaffeboy said...

Congratulations, Cassidy baby!

Walkies walkies are fabulous!!!

Boo said...

talking about training... do you know how to train MooMoo to walk properly? well, mom is so afraid to take him for a walkie. you see, he can't walk straight and would jump left right center all the time, ALL THE TIME!

mom has decided not to walk him anymore coz she doesn't have the strength to pull him.

Lesley Rigby said...

Oh, I have laughed so much. Harry's keeness to do training amused me.
Wonderful news Cassidy that you are A1 again. What a patient "Little Treasure" you have been. Lots of Love and cuddles to both of you.

Graham, Prince & Tilly said...

Yay - great to hear that you're back on top form! You and Harry look like a model pair of citizens!

Kimi Wagner said...

Hi Cassidy and Harry,

Both of you are so lucky to have that little den space under the stairs. Such a cool place to go hide and nap. I wish I had a secret place to hide and nap too, but I have a plastic crate instead for a day bed.
