Flynns right hip is playing him up something rotten. He's due to have his replacement in ten days and I can't wait now. I can hear the foot scrape sometimes when on a walk and it clunks loudly when he sits he's so brave and never complains, except last week when he yelped in the garden on getting up. You can see where the claws on one side of his back right foot are wearing down. I've put him back on his Rimadyl because it must be painful but he's still a happy, loving boy - never grumpy my baby and he only gets two two min walks a day now. Funny thing was last year about three weeks before his first op he started to get very lame and now the same thing has happened again, it's as if he telling me i'm right in deciding to have it done. I've been apprehensive because it's a big op but somehow now I feel I don't have a choice again. Can't bear him to be in pain and just wish it was summer and all healed like the other one. Such a brave boy and I love him so much.
