Charlie Update – Two Week Post-Op Update 1   Recently updated !

It’s high time for a Charlie update, am I right?!  Time is flying you guys and in the case of Charlie’s recovery, that is good news!  He’s healing super quickly and we couldn’t be happier where he’s at.  Here he is at 14 and 15 days post-op — doesn’t he look incredible?  His stitches came out on Monday morning and he will be going back on August 9th for a consultation with his surgeon and it is at this time that we’ll get the all-clear to begin rehab and hydrotherapy.  Charlie and his pal, Lily (front). She and Charlie both had CCL […]

Charlie Update 13

So we are now on day 3 post-surgery for Charlie. He had his much-anticipated surgery on Tuesday morning with his orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Isakow. Now knowing his schedule, we are very lucky and blessed to have had him make the time to see Charlie and perform his operation.  His surgeon and his wife sold the business a couple of years ago and now, as a result, he doesn’t practice much and only comes in once a month.  We are super grateful for him and the work he did on Charlie.  The best though: my mom dropped Charlie off on Tuesday […]


Here we go Again 23

Almost two years ago exactly, Charlie was having surgery to repair a torn CCL in his left hind knee.  Well, you guessed it – we are in the same boat, my friends.  Charlie has injured his back right leg and it looks exactly like it did when he tore his ligament two years ago. Charlie was at my mom’s house, having been dropped off with his brother on Saturday night so Jeff and I could go up to visit our friend’s, Tara and Erik.  Everything was peachy yesterday… Until we got back to my mom’s house after Father’s Day dinner […]

Charlie turns 10! 13

Our little man Charlie turns 10 years old today! You are such a sweet, funny, feisty and charismatic boy, Charlie and you bring us so much joy.  One of your best qualities is that you have this insatiable ability to win absolutely anyone over and make them fall in love with you.  You just love people in general and your zest for life shines through for all those that are blessed to meet you. So without further ado, we hope you have the happiest of birthdays, my boy — we hope you have a hundred more of them so that […]


One year ago: Charlie’s Cranial Cruciate Repair 6

Exactly one year ago today, Charlie was heading into surgery for his left hind cranial cruciate to be repaired (fancy word for knee, basically) and just for fun, they planed down his meniscus a bit as it was partially torn.  If you’d like to read about his journey and healing process, click here.  I went into the surgery that apprehensive, worried and very nervous, thinking that it was going to be a rough, rough road ahead of us but in the end it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. For the first few days, my mom took him into her home […]

Motivational Monday  6

Well if this doesn’t make you want to turn around and go back to bed, I don’t know what will.   Charlie had no plans for his Monday. 😉 This is the polar opposite of motivation. Lol I’ll be back tomorrow for the Let’s Be Friends Blog Hop that I’m cohosting, and I will also be posting my pet sitting adventures from the weekend, too.  Work got a little nuts today and the day ran away from me.  Happy Monday!
