Poor little puppy-upper-kins


Our little Porter. Well, maybe little is a bit off, he is 86+ lbs. after all. Or should I make that was. Our little fluffer-nutter hurt his back leg. We thought he tore his ACL (so did his doc). The vet checked it out, putting him under and everything. Everyone was prepared for surgery. Turns out, he's got arthritis. The doc was surprised to see it in such a young dog (he's 1 1/2 yrs. old). The icing on the cake is he's not eating very well. In the past two weeks, he's dropped weight to a light 77lbs. The vet did blood work and didn't find anything. WHAT'S THE DEAL?!?!?

I'm so sad.

What a darling boy!

Hopefully, he just has spring fever?? Hope you figure out why he's unwell soon!
