That's Tanner on a bed in the living room, enjoying one of Holly's favorite toys. (We didn't tell her.) This is what he does when he makes it past the security guard out front -- i.e., Darla -- and scampers into the house.
Tanner's hip is completely healed up and he enjoys racing around the yard on three very fast legs these days. A couple of days ago we had put the dogs out while we were having lunch, and I could look out the window and see Tanner joyfully sprinting back and forth along the fence -- just because he could. I marveled to Alayne, "Look at that boy go!"
Barb R. asked whether Travis' mouth is staying open after his surgery. Yes, it is so far, though we still have him on a very small dose (2.5 mg every other day) of prednisone. We're waiting a bit longer to do the final taper. Travis feels great, too -- he sprints out the door with Tanner every morning, and together they race to the spruce tree at the other end of the yard.
2014 Shelter Challenge Underway
The first round of the Shelter Challenge for 2014 is underway and runs until March 30th. You can vote every day here. To search for us, type in our name, Rolling Dog Farm, and Lancaster, NH 03584. We've won thousands of dollars in the previous contests, so your daily votes do bring in serious money for our disabled animals!
Please note that I cannot help with technical or voting problems. I also do not have an "inside track" to anyone at the Shelter Challenge, and I don't know any more about the contest than anyone else does. So if you find yourself having issues, please consult their FAQ page here and their Rules page, which is a pop-up you can find linked on this page.
Thanks for your votes!
