Java tore both ACLs at the same time in February of 2010. She had back to back TPLOs, 10 weeks apart. 3-25-10 & 6-3-10.
Moka broke both bones in her back leg in December of 2009. She had surgery to put a steel rod and pins through her bones and another surgery to remove the hardware...she was crated 24/7 for 4 months straight.
I'd say they're looking pretty good for a couple of orthodogs! (Java is in the red collar in back and Moka is in the blue cllar in front).
Still going strong 2 years later...
And just a couple of pics of Java doing her favorite thing:
I wanted to post a couple of pics to show people whose dogs may have just had surgery or are facing surgery in the future that they CAN be healthy, happy and active after surgery!!

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
Thanks for posting those! We're exactly 6 weeks out from Rukus' TTA surgery and I can't wait for the day that he's back to normal and playing again.
