eyesofcuriosity It's apparently #nationalpuppyday! I don't know. I'll take any excuse to post a picture of Miller. Hard to believe that in two days my Biggins will be celebrating his FIFTH adoption anniversary. #rescueisthenewblack #rescuesdoitbest #mydanebaby #puppydays 4d

eyesofcuriosity My poor baby. What we thought was a pulled ligament is actually a blown ACL. The vet said that dogs who have the surgery don't do any better than dogs who don't. So he's on bed rest for another 4-6 weeks. Wish me luck, this big guy is BORED. On the plus side, he's been awarded best x-rayer! Though I probably should've fed him before taking him to the pet store for his treat...he got a little overwhelmed with his choices. 1w
  •   eyesofcuriosity @flyvioletbird I know! I pulled a treat down from the top shelf and he was like "There's a top shelf!" 1w
  •   eyesofcuriosity @caroz Not much. He has pain meds but he only gets them as needed. The X-ray showed a slight slant on his left hip, so the vet thinks that he made his right leg his dominant leg and that's what led to the blow out. She thinks that if he loses a little weight that it will lessen the strain on the slanted hip and correct his walking. 1w
  •   eyesofcuriosity @mandysunshine14 He could use some Banana cuddles! And Finn giggles! 1w
  •   mrsjennjones83 I'm so sorry!!! I hope he feels better soon! 1w
  •   caroz Aww hang in there big guy!! 1w
  •   eyesofcuriosity @mrsjennjones83 Thanks! He's a trooper. 1w
  •   juniperhillantiques Hope your baby is better soon! That being said, (I am saying this gently) perhaps you should get a second opinion. My dog had a blown ACL a year and a half ago. We did conservative measures (rest and therapy) then chose surgery because rest and therapy didn't work. If your dog is young and you are willing to do the long stint of therapy and recovery (4 months) you may look into TTA surgery. We are totally recovered now and it worked perfectly. At the 6 month mark we had our dog back. It is expensive but was totally worth it. We went at a vet surgery specialist that does these surgeries every day with amazing outcomes. I had originally gone to my regular vet that had the same opinion as your vet, I'm happy I didn't take him as the last word. Specialists are the only vets that should perform this surgery. I wish you the best with your baby, I know how special he is to you! 1w
  •   eyesofcuriosity @juniperhillantiques My vet said that if I did chose to have surgery that she would refer us to a specialist. I was initially leaning toward surgery, but I've heard a handful of success stories from people who've done conservative measures. The head vet and my cousin (who has veterinary training) had dogs recover from ACL injuries with conservative measures. He's been on restricted play for 2 weeks and I can see an improvement. For now, I'm going to see if he keeps improving. I plan on getting a second X-ray in a few weeks. I do remember how quickly your little guy bounced back after surgery and how well it worked for you. I'm glad he's better. I hate it when dogs get sick or hurt. They can't tell us what's wrong. 1w

eyesofcuriosity I have a question for my followers: Have any of you guys heard of accurate dog DNA testing? When I rescued Miller at 3 months I was told he was lab and Rottweiler with no Dane. And then he grew, and grew, and grew, and you could no longer deny his Dane side. For a while I thought he was Dane/lab and then I stumbled on the #daniff tag and honestly, he looks very much like a daniff. Now I want to know what my big guy is mixed with more than ever. #rescueproblems #lovemymutt 3w
  •   yelbad There is a facebook group for daniffs maybe they could help answer some questions 3w
  •   megamelissalynn Our chihuahua from the pound turned out to be lab/German Shepherd! 3w
  •   eyesofcuriosity @lemonbirdjams A lot of people have told me that. He's wider and a bit shorter than the average Dane. He also has webbed paws and a knobby head like a lab. I've run into other dogs that were Dane/Lab and Miller is taller and more lanky than they are. 3w
  •   eyesofcuriosity @yelbad Aw! You love your little fur nephew so much you research him on Facebook too. Aw. Greatest uncle ever. 3w
  •   eyesofcuriosity @megamelissalynn Tipper! Shelley told me about her! 3w
  •   lemonbirdjams Hmmmm. We have a boxer/dane mix (Boxane). We were told a year old Boxer then she shot up with these super long legs. Does he do "zoomies" or have some of the goofy Dane personality? 3w
  •   eyesofcuriosity @lemonbirdjams Ahh! A Boxane! Miller used to be friends with one at a dog park and he was amazing. He's definitely a leaner like Dane. He does zoomies outside but thankfully is extremely calm indoors. He's really goofy, he hasn't learned his size when he's excited and he constantly runs into furniture, and then he gives it the stink eye for tripping him. 3w
  •   lemonbirdjams They are so funny! And so much fun! We were laughing last night about how we got this small dog and then she just shot up really tall. 3w

eyesofcuriosity Sleepy time for everyone!

edited to add: My boyfriend's kid has been posting on my account (with supervision, of course) for the past two days. Miller takes his guard dog status very seriously. No one gets passed without his approval.
