Update on Duke

Yep, it was broken -- in 2 places. Fortunately the one on the femur was hairline and the other wasn't all the way across on the tibia. Duke is now limping around on a "quick" splint. Prognosis is for recovery in 3-4 weeks. Meanwhile, semi-confinement to reduce opportunities for stressing the breaks before they heal.

Judging from the bill I'm happy it didn't require surgery!!!

That's good news.

I just had hip surgery for an aging watch dog. I work several new jobs - one for gas, one for veterniary bills. I bet you feel like a scamp and will make it up to this dog big time- I wish I could understand how these things happen as they do.One night 16 years ago, after a lot of stress in my life day after day, I woke up real fast and startled my dog who had a heart attack and died right on the spot
