    DefaultNewton has an appointment tomorrow.

    Tomorrow Newt and I are heading to the vets to discuss the "gameplan". I am going in with an open mind. I have his xrays, and will be bringing them in with me. I am leaning towards no surgery at this time. He isn't showing any pain, and if the doctor feels that is the way to go, then that is the road we will travel. I hope this visit helps rest my mind a bit about him. Will keep you all posted. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers.

    I haven't posted much but have been reading!

    I think once you get the weight off him you will see a different dog! He's carrying a TON of extra which is going to have a huge impact on his mobility and joint function. A friend of mone's dog recently dropped ten pounds and the difference in her was unbelieveable, even her eyes sparkle more now.

    So I think waiting on the surgery definitely makes sense. Get him lean and see what his baseline is then, and create a plan of attack based on that.

    Good thoughts for your boy!!

    I agree with Kate, get the weight off him before you make any real decisions.

    Give him a smooch from us!
