Here is a cross-post on Chance:
"Chance is getting around amazingly well. When he tries to run, it currently is more like bunny hopping, but he can move. He and the black puppies have graduated to the big backyard when they do a lot of running around. The big dogs were very curious about the puppies at first (the yellow puppies scared Chance to death) but they were very quickly bored. They went off the play with each other - sort of like 5th graders having no interest in kindergarteners.
Speaking of which, Chance attended his first session of puppy kindergarten. There he made the acquaintance of a 5-month-old white standard Poodle, a very cute 12-week-old Husky puppy and a Chinese Crested. He was fine until the Husky puppy wanted to play with him, at which point he hid under a chair. The next class is tomorrow and I think he will do much better.
Chance was seen by Dr. Scavelli, an orthopedic specialist. Dr. Scavelli was impressed with the progress Chance has made in 3-1/2 weeks. He was concerned about the bunny hopping and took a hip x-ray. Let me tell you, it did not look wonderful. The ascetabulum depth is not what one would hope for. Dr. Scavelli suggested he be checked again at 3 months. He also noted that Chance has 2 speeds - high gear and zero. How true that is!!!
Back at PT, Dr. Starr was very pleased to note that Chance's rib cage is straightening out. Last week it was obvious that he was very crooked just by looking at him. This week he appears normal and only by putting her hands on him was she able to feel he is not 100% yet.
I did get a really cute picture of Chance with you-know-who at you-know-where. Sheesh. Wish it could go on the website, but I don't think I can get in any trouble posting it here. Wink This is how we'd like to see him stand."
