Default Raven

For those who follow some of my dog posts, Raven my 7 year old black lab is currently under the knife for a blown knee. She'll be home tomorrow and then 8 weeks of easy going. The problem is she was a frisbie nut and the vet said no more ever. She has a 80% likelyhood of blowing the other knee with-in 2 years, This sucks. Just completed a makeshift ramp up the back deck steps to help her up and down.

I'm a Lab lover, they are tough dogs and bounce back well. Hope all goes well with Raven. I'm sure theres other fun activities she can learn.

Our yellow lab was hit by a car in October, tore him up pretty bad but it didn't keep him down for long. He's stronger than ever now.

Good luck to Raven and her healing process. She'll be fine HM just appreciate the fact the she is still alive and a big part of your life. It's all a natural way of life to age and break down a little bit.

I hope all goes well for her. My dog got hit by a car about 8 years ago. He had to get a leg taken off but he gets around just fine. He doesn't like to run around on the highway anymore though.

I'm Glad Raven's back in the safety of home to relax and recover... Good Luck to Raven.
