Hi! Got kisses? I do, I do!!!
My name is Simon. A nice lady found me wandering – yeah, wandering – and my back legs don’t work! We don’t know if something happened to me, or if this was congenital, or what….at least not yet.
’bout that wandering thing? My foster mom is surprised – I’m really FAST. I get to moving even with two legs! Vroooom!
Right now, we’re asking for help with my diagnosis and some potential tests. We’ll update this once there’s more info on me. As of right now, we can tell you – I don’t seem to have bladder control, but I don’t mind a belly band. And I love to give KISSERS!!!
Simon’s foster mom here. We’re not going to tell him that I’ve labeled him READY – the last time that happened, he decided to quit walking again. So, here’s the scoop.
Well, see, it’s like this. I stopped walking. My foster mom came home, and my ‘lil rear legs aren’t working again. I didn’t lose my tail wag, tho!! I’s still happy! She called it a “serious backslide” – dunno what she’s talking about, dogs don’t SLIDE!
The doggie doctor says I hurt myself – I’ve slipped a disc, maybe the same one, maybe a different one. SO, now I have to take some pills, and we’re doing the cold laser thingy again. Cross your paws for me!
Who’s the bestest poodle ever? I AM! You know what I can do? I’s WALKING!
I got cold laser treatment. I get to wear ‘lil goggles, and they feed me cookies, and run a thing over my back and legs. This doesn’t seem like such a bad deal as long as the treats keep coming!
First, I started boosting myself up. Then I started standing at the water bowl. Next thing you know, I took TWO whole steps! And once I started taking steps….it just kept getting better and better!
I’m NOT 100%. I have some bladder control now, most of the time. I still don’t have bowel control yet – but we’re hopeful.
My accomplishment this week? I climbed up on the couch! Poodles RULE THE WORLD!
