Mikey's Story

Many folks have asked us who is that dog featured up there on your blog home page? Well that is Mikey. He is a 5 year old Golden Doodle, who is also a Certified Therapy dog with a very busy schedule. 
Mikey came to us hoping to get into better shape before major surgery.
Mikey has severe hip dysplasia and was scheduled for surgery to totally replace his right hip. His left would have to be done some time down the road.

There was much preperation in Mikey's household planning for his post-op recovery. With 4 other fur siblings in his house, and Mikey limited to crate rest for at least 4 weeks, their household was not going to be 'normal'. His special area was set up with his new orthopedic bed, work schedules were adjusted, vacation time taken to accommodate Mikey's lengthy and complicated recovery regime.

They were as ready as they could be for such a major event.

Mikey went in for his Pre Surgery X-Rays the day before his scheduled surgery at 7am the following day.

Mikeys Mom called us from the surgeon's office, absolutely beside herself with joy.  Mikey's highly respected Board Certified Surgeon said.."Mikey DOES NOT NEED THIS SURGERY NOW".

The Surgeon is so very impressed with what we are doing with Mikey. "His improvement since he started swimming is amazing"
All this was accomplished in just 16 swims!
Mikey's Mom has been instructed by the Surgeon to swim Mikey once a week. As long as he can do that he will Never Need Surgery!

We are so very happy to have helped Mikey!
You are Welcome big guy!


"Syracuse Sadie" Welcome

Welcome to Sadie, she is from...Syracuse. We have a few Sadies so we need to have our own pet names for them so we know which Sadie is which.

Sadie was a rescue so her actual age is unknown, she is somewhere between 7 and 8 years old. Sadie recently had cruciate surgery and is comming here to swim to assist in her rehab.

These pictures were taken on day three of her Orientation swim. Sadie took to the pool right away. When she arrived for her second swim she was so excited she could barely wait for her Mom to open the car door.

 Sadie's recovery is comming along very well. Swimming will help speed up her return to her normal self...and she is going to have a Great time doing it!

We are happy to aid Sadie on her way to total recovery.
and Sadie....well she is just happy!
