I am NOT a gimp!

So here I am relaxing in bed. It's been all I have been able to do lately. I am on STRICT bedrest until further notice. It makes me feel very saddest.

You know that I have had a very sorest back leggy. It isn't getting ANY betterest. Mom took me to the vet last week and they wanted to check my sore leggy and I said NO way man. Leave my sorest leggy alone!! SO, the vet said because my leg was still sore, I needed to see an orthopedic specialist. What the heck is an "Orthopedic Specialist"? Mom said
o-k, and they scheduled my appointment for Wednesday, January 30th.

I sure wish that my leggy wouldn't be so sorest. It is hard work hobbling around on 3 legs. Mom's worried about my good back leg. I can't go for walkies at all and I've gained some wait since I don't get any excercisest. I'm very very SAD........ No walkies no playing with Mr. Whiskers or Jordan. No nothingest.....SIGH.......
Note from Mom:

Lillie's leg isn't improving at all. The vet said the minute you flex it her knee cap dislocates. At home even after the slightest bit of exercise she is hobbling around on three legs. Sometimes she'll go down the steps and sometimes she won't. She isn't supposed to, but it is difficult for me to lift a 70# dog down the steps. She does know how to go down on three legs and I help her when she does that. She seems to be handling things pretty well but she is very quiet. She lays around alot, and looks sad. Sometimes she will get a bit of energy (thanks to the anti-inflammatory meds) but then she ends up paying for it later. She has been sleeping on her bed on the floor, and won't jump up on the bed at all. The only time she gets up on the bed is if someone helps her. The plan right now is for her to see the Orthopedic surgeion on Wednesday. Surgery is planned for 10:00 a.m. unless the orthopedist says we should continue on the same course we are taking now.

Back to Lillie:
So, I say to my friends keep your paws crossed that thingys work out the betterest for me. I don't want to see any orthopoodist or whatever it is. I want them to leavest my leggest alone. I say WHATSSSSUPP..........................Get your hands off me. Can someone come and kidnaps me from my home so I don't have to go back to the vetest on Wednesday? HELP!!!! TANNER!!!! ANYONE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!GIRL GIRL can you come get me in your girl girl mobile???

Hi Lillie,
You think YOU'RE the only non-gimp dog with a bad leggy?? There are TONS of us!!! I am having surgery for a torn CCL (ligament in the knee) on Thursday, the day after you see your orthopedic surgeon. I've already seen TWO of those guys and I didn't like either one!!! (But as as rule, I don't like ANY doctors!) I hope you don't have what I have, but if you do (and even if you don't) your mom will find out a lot of info on your ailment as well as tips about how to make your life easier if she joins the orthodogs group on It's a place where all moms going through similar worries gather together and share info. You'll like it to because your mom will be glued to her computer which means she'll be spending more time with you! GOOD LUCK, Lillie!
Love, Clarence

The bedrest STINKS i know .Do you want to borrow my flat screen TV adn watch HBO like Tanner does and learn swear words? Please keep us posted Love Archie and Agatha

Good luck with the Orthopedic Surgeon. It doesn't sound like any fun but, if he/she can get you back on all four legs, maybe it will be worth whatever they do to you. We will come back to find out what is happening!

Oh poor Lillie! I'm so sad that your leg is hurting you. Don't be too woried about seeing the orthopedic, I had to see one and he was pretty cool. Hopefully whatever they do will make your leggy better and you can return to running around and playing like an Airedale should be! Let us know how everything goes. I'll keep my paws crossed for you.

Your pal,

Hi Lillie, we are sending you lots of healing Aire-zen! We know surgery is no fun, but once it is all overwith, you won't be sad anymore!

Don't worry Lillie, Tanner still loves you and you are still his wife, but he doesn't have any other friends because he is a complete SPAZZ and Teka sorta is too. He got you some valentines day stuff that we will be mailing tomorrow but he really is a doofus and its not very romantic. But I think the saying is, 'its the thought that counts?'
