One small step for Petey, one giant leap for Jane!

Today's achievements for Petey....

Woke up with a wagging tail...

Took the stairs rather than the elevator when we went out for walks (good depth perception)...

Talked to his friend Denise at the bank to give him a cookie...

Jumped off the bed while wearing his cone, rather than waiting for me to lift him down...

Insisted on a walk of over an hour this afternoon, tugging all the way...

Played briefly with his favorite orange rubber ball!

We are grateful beyond words for all the sweet messages, prayers, and pep talks that we've received from you all this week. Really made an enormous difference in BOTH of our recoveries!

Much love from Jane and Petey

We were glad to read the good news about Petey. You mention that he has gained a bit of weight...muzzer says she is sure that you have lost the equivalent amount with worry. However, she has tried the Merck's Thanksgiving Feast meals, and recommends the Chicken and Dumpling one.
