Duke II

We took Duke to the specialty veterinary hospital here in Charlotte this afternoon. As you may recall Duke has a broken leg that is healing in the most awkward way. What we expected to hear was that Duke would be best with an amputation or better yet they could re-break the leg and set it. Either option would be traumatic to Duke and expensive for us.

What we found out is Duke’s leg is healing freakishly but it is healing. His leg will be shorter and it will take two more months of taking it easy to fully heal.

Duke does have a torn ACL so we know he was active. This can be fixed in the spring.

Duke was so grateful that we didn’t take him back to the pound. He was very nervous. His siblings back home were happy to see his return.
