Welcome!! This is a journal about my dogs and what we do.
All my dogs have their own websites that you can see by clicking their photo in the sidebar.

Jake's site (click for site) is the most active right now with new posts in addition to the facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/laurelstone).

This site is a work in progress and has become a source of information. When asked a question I would write a post to answer
it which led to a post to summarize the questions. Check the sidebar for this type of information.

He does NOT like the cone!

But he does look cute for the camera!  It’s in the crate that he gets upset!

He also know that sitting in front of the refrigerator will generally make it open!

Thanks all for your good thoughts! Jake came through the surgery just fine and we are home from Madison. Here are some of my thoughts... poor baby... oohh... that cone on your head must be awful... sorry, no matter how loud you scream I won't take it off (he has been know before to pitch a fit) ... look at that, he figured out how to drink ...See More

I am so glad that the surgery went well! You two were in my thoughts all day. Do you need a larger crate?? If so I could loan you one of mine. I feel so bad that he had this past injury but I am keeping my fingers crossed that he will mend and be going full steam ahead in a short time.

I think he will be just fine! No puppy should have to go through this but everything happens for a reason. The crate now is 4x3x30". He is content now licking his dinner off the kitchen floor... (don't ask) lol

Jake is doing well today and I can see that my problem will be keeping him from overdoing it!! Dogs are amazing! It's the darn collar that he doesn't like!

Not sure if this will benefit your situation, but it helped my guy after his surgery. Try turning the cone around (ismall part around his neck, large part over his shoulders instead of sticking out into the air). It helps with all the bumping and banging into things yet prevents him from licking!! Best of luck to you and your pooch!

Hi laurel,

Did you know there are now 'soft cone' collars...they are made from neoprene. I am sure they are more comfortable that the one Jake is currently wearing. Might want to give one of them a try......

Amy.. kind of tested it and I'd be afraid that for this situation the edge of the collar could catch the stitches.. good idea however. 
Andrea... I googled them.. interesting.. For the 2 weeks that he needs to wear it, he'll pretty much be on leash so he'll have to suffer with the hard one for now. My other dogs went through dog doors with the... See More

Laurel, my #1 dog had her FHO 2 years ago. Now you rarely see it -- she'll pick up the leg on very rare occasion IF concerned of the ground for only a step, but proprioception is near 100%.

A LOT of aqua/hydrotherapy with cold laser (her therapist is now a best friend lol) to help strengthen the false joint

thanks Carol for the suggestions. I have a plan in mind for water therapy and am using a Photonic Torch (photonichealth.com) right now.
