FREE TO RUN.....AT LAST!!!

After allowing Asia to have little runs in the garden etc, I decided to let her off the lead on the beach today. I put the other dogs on the lead to let her run and play at her own pace.

 

The operation to repair the severed tendon in her back right leg did not work and she has been left with two "dropped" toes because of the tendon over-stretching.

I had two options...... to try again with more surgery, meaning Asia would have been on the lead for around a year and her muscles would be practically non-existant (she is thinner just now because her muscles have not been used as normal) and the other option was to see how she goes with her foot the way it is and see if she adapts. As you can see, I decided to see how she goes. She is a young girl and I don't really want her missing out on the most fun years of her life! Fingers crossed that with gradual exercise to build her up again, she will do well and be without further problems.
