    Nothing better than snuggling up with a pup, of any age, in front of a fire. Enjoy.πŸ˜πŸΆπŸ’–

    @Lily Pilly just  noticed this  thread  and I hope that  she's doing well. It's  difficult to keep a Goldie quiet  for a lot of time.

    When Barley was 4 months old he had to have keyhole surgery on his elbows couldn't go for long walks but he didn't need to be caged. But  keeping him calm was very difficult.
    But after that we had a lot of trouble getting him out for walks and going the way that we wanted to go.

    All the best and  lots of hugs.

    Thanks Logan, it’s been far more tricky to manage than we were led to expect?
    Doing well though, up to six minute walks on the level at guide dog pace but it gets us both out!she is shattered afterwards

    Lily pilly Thanks for letting me know,It will take time but I'm glad that she's doing well and yes if we didn't have the boys we wouldn't get out and we wouldn't know so many people. All the best let me know how she's getting on. Thank you for letting me know. Lots of hugs and  kisses.

    I hope she's coping with the confines of the cage LP.   Our pair can certainly spend hours sleeping on their respective sofas and even, sometimes, in their baskets.   Bonzo Lab is currently stretched out but twitching vigorously - chasing something in his dreams.

    Glad that she's recovering.  How much longer before she's back to normal?

    My dogs had a few operations, and 'sniff walks' are great for giving him something to do, without much actual walking involved.  when he's on restricted excercise, I drive to a bit of grass/woods that we haven't been to before, keep him on lead and just let him sniff stuff.  He moves at a snails pace as he needs to sniff everything (and pee on everything of course), so he's not actually walking very far which means we can stay out for longer, but its activating his brain which tires him out a bit.   
    I hope your girl recovers well

    Logan, the prognosis is very good
    Thanks pink lily, every day is another day
    obelixx it’s a long haul, but she was in pain and retrievers are good at hiding pain. When they operated the had to break her bone and hollow a bit out. Called a TPLO.
    expected time crated 12 weeks (we are at 5) full recovery July/august, 

    our problem is she is a country dog. Never on a lead, we use a training rope if we need to call her in. Recall is superb so we can really trust her. She swims in the river thinks nothing of going up and down steep banks and basically still thinks she is  3.
    Leo her partner in crime thinks nothing of leading her on. He just can’t understand why she is incarcerated   He once chewed his way out of an identical crate
