Luke moved his foot and leg!


Last night as I was giving Luke his foot massage (I never thought I would start a sentence that way), his toes curled around my finger, and his little leg pushed back at me. He kept doing that for about 30 seconds, enough time for me to say, “Craig! Look at this!” and Craig could see it too. During all of this, he was looking up at me, with this really smug expression on his face.

He is getting much better about staying in the crate and not fussing. As long as I keep up with expressing his bladder, he does not have an accident (although I sometimes get peed on when I pick him up to take him outside.) I would still like to explore the drug for bladder control, but that can wait until we figure out what is going on with his legs. I am so proud of him!

His wheelchair is on the way — I got an email from www.dogstogo.net last night. They are even giving Luke a discount for being a rescue guy.

Big news for Luke. As I write this, I have his crate on the dining room table next to me, so he can look out the window and bark at the neighbors. It keeps him a lot happier than being on the floor where he has little to entertain him.
