Rudy

It hurts me to the core to say that Rudy is down in his back again. A few days ago we were outside with all the dogs enjoying the lovely weather we have been having. A neighbor's cat ventured into the yard, and before we could stop him, Rudy was off in a dead run with the rest of the pack. The next day he was sore, but moving around. Now, he only gets up to drink water. We have done all we can for him, but he is not showing much improvement. He is not completely paralyzed but when he does get up, his back legs are very wobbly. The worse thing is he has now stopped eating. I did manage to get him to lick a couple of tablespoons of beef gravy this morning and he is still drinking water. Keep you fingers and paws crossed that he will improve, but I fear the worse.

So sorry to hear about the set back. When I saw his name as the title to your blog, I feared the worst. Hoping very much for another recovery.
