Joey has now completed both TPO (triple pelvic osteotomy) surgeries and is recovering well. He has started physical therapy. Joey usually does just about anything to please, but was a little scared and not too excited about physical therapy. Given the fact that he’s found ways to compensate for his pain in earlier months, it’s been a bit more challenging to get him to do his therapy properly rather than what has been pure instinct in the past. He’s a trusting little guy and will soon realize not only is his quality of life getting better, but it’ll be pain free!

Wow! What a journey! Joey’s had so much happen since the last update.

Joey’s first surgery and rehab is complete and he made it through like a champ. The doc said he’s like a whole different puppy and it was great seeing him show some spunk!

We’ve found that not only does he like to play with tennis balls, but he LOVES to play with water. It doesn’t matter if it’s from his water dish, the hose, his pool, a pond or a lake. If it splashes, he’s all in! He sure is loving all this rain we’re getting! Joey’s a gentle pup who loves playing and snuggling with his foster sisters. He doesn’t discriminate, so if there should be an open lap... 😊

Joey's second surgery was on September 5th, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that everything goes as well as the first! We’ll keep you posted.

I can’t say enough about this beautiful little boy! He has two foster sisters and together, they adopted a new motto.... Eat, sleep, play, repeat! This little guy loves investigating new things, and he actually leads the way with his older sisters quite often. His favorite activity is playing with his new squeaky rabbit or playing Chuck It in the back yard. Joey’s on the pay it forward system, get a snuggle, give two snuggles back. He’s definitely a tender-hearted pup. To meet Joey is to love him.

Joey had a great night. We set him on the floor when we first walked in the door & he was off and running. He spent most of the night investigating the house, but once he found the toy box it was all over. He cried for a few minutes at bed time and went to sleep. We were up pretty early and Joey hung out in the loft with a couple of toys and watched Emmy & Bailey (our other Goldens) playing. He is very playful, but does seem a little timid. He’s quite the snuggler!
