Road to Recovery

I am home
Dr. B, the neurologist stole my 67 blings
They stuck me in water therapy
They stuck me in physical therapy
But they did give a get well card.

 Every day for a month I have to do 87 exercises
Doc said no running and only 5 minute total walks.
The pictures of my insides showed my discs pushing on my spinal cord/back.
Any day, Doc said I could have been paralyzed if mom didn't bring me in when she saw my uncomfortableness

Benny & Lily


  1. Oh my goodness, I am so glad your mommy got you in there! Hang in there and you will do great! So nice of them to send a card. Sending healing vibes to you!

  2. God was watching out for you Lily!! Wesa so happy your mama took you in on time and kept yousa from being paralyzed!
    Much Luvums,

    George, Gracie, Toby, Lily, and Mimi

  3. Oh, Lily. I'm so sorry. I know how much bad discs hurt. PT can make such a big difference. Do those 87 exercises (and drop the beer/cheeseburgers)! OK? We all want you to feel better.

    Do you get to walk on an underwater treadmill? If you do, please ask your mom to take video... Don't worry, even K says that it's fun.

  4. Lily your mom and dad are wonderful. Now get on some arnica and heal up girl!

  5. Oh you poor thing, thank goodness your momma is so conscientious. Keep up with the exercises we have all our paws crossed for you

  6. Good job you've got such a great Mom! Deccy x

  7. So glad you got in there Lily! That must be so owie.

  8. I'm sorry the V-E-T guy stole your bling, but I'm glad you are feeling better and released from jail!

  9. Yikes! We obviously missed something here! What happened to you? Anyway, glad you're on the med. Please be good about following instructions.


  10. I'm glad to hear you are doing much better now. The exercises will be good for you so keep at it.


  11. You sweet little darling! So glad you are recovering well AND that your Mom caught this in the nick of time! I hope every day you feel better and better!! Many gentle hugs to you, Lily!! xo

  12. I'm glad your mom caught things in time! Feel better soon.

  13. Oh I hope the therapy isn't too difficult

    Stop on by for a visit

  14. Lily you have so much to be thankful for that your mommy did see you uncomfortable and got you in. Having the surgery was no cake walk but you have been a real trooper. You have much to do on your road to recovery! I bet you will learn to like the water therapy! Less stressful and hopefully more relaxing...think of it all as a spa day just for Lily!

    Maybe mom will find you a new bling collar....

  15. I can not believe they stole your blinds! I've got the # for a good lawyer if you want to take them to court~

  16. Wow! Lily, you are a very lucky girl! I'm sorry they stole your bling, but I'm glad you'll be okay. Maybe you can get some new bling. Follow the doctor's orders and do all your exercises!


  17. Thank doG for your mom, Lily! We hope you're back to 100% soon.

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  18. Thank dogness your mum realised you were in pain. How does it feel without your blings - pretty good eh? Wow, that is a lot of excercises, try not to overdo it Lily.

  19. We are so thankful that your mum is on the ball! But we think 5 minutes TOTAL for walks is a bit harsh. At least you'll be able to enter the sleeping events in the Olympics.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  20. Bring on the bikini! We love swimming. You'll have a human with you, plus a life jacket probably which will make you feel safe. You'll be back on your paws, chasing Benny in no time!

  21. Thank goodness your mom was paying attentions to you!
    And thank goodness she took you to the vet so quick!
    I know you will be a good girl and not over doooo anything,, just get better!

  22. So glad your momma got you in there!

  23. Oooooh, that was terrible I see !
    I do hope you'll feel much better very soon !!!

    Love from Flo, Nana, and Uyanga, in Japan.

  24. Hurray for your Mom!
    I am sure those exercises will make you feel much better!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  25. Lily, we are so glad you have such a smart and loving Mom. Good luck with the therapy.

  26. OH lilly, We are so glad your human got you to the doctors. Now I know it will be hard, but be sure to do exactly what they tell you to and NO JUMPING up on or down off the furniture and NO STAIRS.

    Enjoy the therapy, some of it feels really good.

  27. So now you are just like our Dad! Except I bet you're going to be better about doing your exercises than he is! Take care of yourself, Miss Lily, and be nice to your Mom - she clearly takes very good care of you!

  30. Awwwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, our neighbor dog Sam just went through this same thing and we see him out walking with him mommy three times a day. He keeps getting stronger, and so will you! Hang in there kid!

  31. Get well soon! and try to be good....

  32. Wow.... 87 exercises.... Good luck with that.. I know you'll do what the doctor says.

    Happy Father's Day to all

    pawhugs, Max

  33. I like the glance of Lily. It says much about it...

  34. That is a lot of exercises! Glad you are on the mend now, Lily!

  35. Whew! Thank goodness your Mom took you in when she did. One month of no running is a small price to pay for mobility. The watercises sound like they could be fun! :) Cheering you on dear Lily :)

    Waggin at ya,

    PeeS: Will do my best to pawticipate in your beach ball event. Sounds like FUN! :)

  36. It's good that your mom is so alert. Sure hope you're feeling better!

  37. Poor baby! Hope you are out romping soon. It's no fun being a sick puppy!

  38. Yay for your Momma! Thank goodness she got you in to the doc when she did. whew! I'm so glad to see you have your bling out and are on the road to full recovery!

  39. Woof to you Lily!!!! I'm so glad to hear that your stitches are finally out. It's so scary to think what could have happened had your mom not been so on top of everything. I imagine that the physical therapy will be challenging, but please be patient and commit to it so that when you're done, you'll be even better than your former self. And how nice of everyone to get you a card!!!! Much you to you, Benny and your mom - XXOO - Mazzie

  40. Wow Lily we can't get over how strong you're being. Let those Drs take all those blings since you don't need them anymore. We're sending lots and lots of feel good juju juice!

    Lots of licks,
    Swisher and Oakley
