I am glad to say that surgery will not be necessary. Starsky seems to be doing
much better. He can sit now and is able to get up and down without much help. He is
still limping quite a bit but can run pretty fast on three legs. He can keep up with Hutch and wants to chase the kids around.
He goes at the end of the week
for shots and a recheck of his hip. He will be getting is official name tag later this week too. They want it to be a bone shaped one just like Hutch's. PetSmart has a machine that will engrave the tags. We got him a kiddie pool and he just loves it. He still is having some issues with being left alone. He barks and cries incessantly when he is in the back yard, even
when Hutch is out with him. Also when I go in my room or the bathroom and close the door behind me. He is starting to do better with the house rules. Now when we
catch him with the kid's toys or my yarn he drops it and keeps going. I keep wondering when Hutch is going to tell him what the rules are. It is so funny
it seems that he is not able to get close enough to us even when he is practically
sitting on our laps. If we cant find him just look for an A/C vent and that is where he will be . If you are at all familiar with the Starsky & Hutch series, you know that David Starsky has dark/black hair and Ken Hutchinson has blond hair.
