Just two quick then and now videos of Bucky walking and using the leg he had surgery on. We’re making progress!
Two weeks ago:
Two weeks ago he was just touching down occasionally, not putting any weight on the foot. Now he is actually walking on it, with weight. Cautiously still, but good progress nonetheless. He actually runs a little bit sometimes, though he isn’t supposed to and I try to prevent it. But everyone once in a while he just has to explode a little bit. Can’t wait until he is healed well and can really get out there and have some fun.
And just for a little fun/enrichment, I gave Bucky a Kong Wobbler to play with. The first time he tried this he kept trying to chew on the hole where the treats come out, so he wasn’t terribly successful with it. But now he understands that he has to roll it over to get treats to drop out, though he does still try to lick them out of the hole. This is probably a bit more active than he should be with any regularity right now, but as long as I’m supervising so it doesn’t get too rambunctious, and we do this very occasionally, Bucky thinks this is pretty fun (and occasionally frustrating when the stupid treats don’t come out quickly!)
