Not so lucky

A couple of weeks ago I posted a message about Lisa and her broken hockbone. We expected everything to be OK in a couple of weeks but unfortunately it did not turn out to be that easy.

The metal pin that was placed in her leg has worked it's way out after only a few weeks and had to be removed much earlier than expected.
Ever since the pin was removed she is not using her leg anymore and hopefully this will change in a short while but to me it doesn't look very hopefull :-(

Lisa really is the bravest dog we have, through all of her ordeal she stays happy and lively. we even tried to get out the pin with a local sedation and she was sooooo good :-)
Unfortunately the piece that stuck out wasn't long enough to get a good grip on so in the end she had to go under full anaesthesia to get it out.

I know Lisa trusts me in all I do and ask of her but never thought it would go this far. I am keeping fingers crossed for her that she doesn't need another operation but we will do all that is needed for her to be able to walk and play with the other dogs again :-)


It has been awhile again sice I last posted something but our puppies have kept us all busy.
They are a lovely bunch of babies but complete HOOLIGANS!

Ever since their eyes opened they decided the whelping box was too small, two days after that their puppy pen was too small (according to them) and since they are 3 weeks of age they are running freely among our other dogs...

We had a hard time to decide which one of the bitches was the one to keep as both had points we are looking for but maybe the easy going nature of one of them made the final decision.
Time will tell if we were right and if not..... at least we made someone else happy with her choice for the other female ;-)
Here are some pictures of them which we made last weekend:

Coming Wednesday they will have their eyetest done, both parents are genetically clear of CEA/CH but ofcourse there are many other things that might be there ......
