      It's so hard when a definitive diagnosis can't be made. Hopefully the injections work. Sending more prayers and mojo.

      Hope this works. Sorry, best I could do. I try not to persuade him to run around. And please, don't judge me because my lawn is a mess.

      I don't really see much limping in the video, I'm sure you're much more sensitive to his gait though. I hope you get this figured out and no more surgery is needed. Asher wants to be a free dog!

      And judge you because your "lawn in a mess"? No, just no.

      He is walking much better today. I mean really better. His steps are even shorter (not taking such long strides). I'm not getting my hopes up yet though.

      He looks like he is walking well. Maybe the injection has helped and hopefully it will be permanent.

      I'm not seeing a limp, either...It's probably easier to tell when he's just walking full out and not roaming around, changing directions.

      Boys are so cute when they lean...

      That was a very short video and he wasn't walking at all in most of it. I know it's the front end that's been the problem, but is there a hitch in the back left leg?

      Don't even say that. Nothing going on in the back end. He occasionally lays flat out (on his belly) with his back legs behind him....I would think if he had any hip issues he couldn't do that? Maybe, I dunno. Ugh, I can only handle one end at a time!

      I'll take another video today and see if I can catch him in full stride.

      To me, he looks a bit like he walks (when walking slowly) with a bit of hip wiggle/sway. A friend of mine had a guide dog Golden who, in her words, "walked like a Polish princess". Serious hip sway like the little flirt that she was. (the Polish was probably just a reference to the fact that my friend was Polish and, as a family member, so was her dog)

      My Brutus and my Honey walked like this before they started having any hind end issues, as did/does Sunnie. Sunnie's might be something else but Bru and Honey were just fine at the time. (interesting...I just realized that the sway was with the yellows only...my chocolate boys didn't do this....and Baffle had serious hind end issues)

      I think leaning to pee like he does would be really uncomfortable if his leg hurt.

      How's he looking today?

      (I meant to reply/quote Nancy for that first bit.)
