6 Month Ampuversary!

Hello World!

Today is a big day. It’s my six month ampuversary, and I couldn’t be more pumped! It is hard to believe just how great I feel now. I feel even better than I ever did on 4 paws. My endurance for walks has increased 10 fold from my first few weeks as a Tripawd, I can play for ages with my favourite pups, and my energy is just as high as ever. I truly am a happy little guy and I can’t wait to catch you up on how life has been since my last post.

When I last posted, summer was in full swing and I had just had my 2nd birthday. The rest of my summer was filled with loads of sunshine, fresh air, and plenty of my favourite activities (swimming, playing with Kona, long walks, and several pupsicle treats and frozen strawberries).

Also since we last chatted I started going to a chiropupter (they are the type of Dr. that cracks and moves all your bones and makes you feel real good). On my first visit the chiropupter made me do all sorts of exercises, like walk and run and hop up on a box, so that she could see how I moved. Before she got to work on re-aligning me my pelvis was hunched in and my paws would be really close together to stabilize me. I was also really sore in my hind legs and pelvis. I was really tentative when she started to examine my lower body. But she was really good and calming and started with my front legs, head and spine before going to my pelvis. As soon as she realigned my pelvis I felt a huge relief.  She sent my pawrents home with some plank exercises for me to do to strengthen my core, and away we were for the car ride home. After my first visit I was so tired (it was an hour appointment), and my mommy and Eddy said I needed a full days rest before any plays, so I slept the rest of the day away. The next day my pawrents noticed a big difference in me, I stood straighter, my bum didn’t hunch down, and my legs could go further apart. Just this past Monday I had my third chiropupter appointment, and she said I am a whole new dog now. I have kept my alignment, and I have nearly the same standing stance as a 4 pawed pup. I now don’t have to go for another appointment for 6-8 weeks.

In further medical news, I started taking CBD oil on my food, once a day, since the end of the summer. On my last appointment with my regular Dr. he had suggested to my mommy and Eddy that if they wanted they could add CBD oil into my daily routine, as it has shown some capabilities for tumour suppression, as well as its great calming and pain relief benefits. We all figured it was worth a shot! I now take it daily, and am slightly more calm as a result, so I hope the other benefits are working too.

Other than that I have been loving the transition to Fall and the cooler weather. I especially love when my pawrents rake up the leaves and I jump in piles!

Next month I will have another chest scan to see if everything is going smoothly (“cross fingers”), but everyone seems to think I am doing really well, and I am truly loving life. I will make sure to update you all when we get the results.

Love, Huddy <3

    Hoppy Huddy you are ROCKING IT! Oh my dog it is so much fun to see you living life to the fullest and enjoying the seasons. What a champ!

    I love that your people are going the extra mile to take you to the chiroPUPter (haha so cute to say it that way!). Really glad to see that it’s made a difference, along with all the other things they do to make sure you are happy and pain-free. 3-paws up to your amazing humans!
