Pup the Dachshund lost all movement in her hind legs when she ruptured a disc. The Doxie News discovered her story on Flickr where Pup’s peeps and personal paparazzi wrote in April 2010:
Her back legs still don’t cooperate, but while walking her on a sling today in the park, she actually moved her hind legs into position and urinated without assistance or prodding on our part. She still can’t support herself on those legs for very long at all though. Yesterday marked a week after surgery. We’re very hopeful that she will regain mobility in her hind legs again.
She did indeed. Late in the summer, Pup’s peeps checked in again to offer inspiration to another Dachshund lover whose pet was facing surgery:
Our pup is almost as good as new. She walked 2.5 miles with us the other day. It was a really tough few months for us after her surgery, but we are just so grateful that she recovered so well. Best of luck to your daughter and her frenchie. I hope her pup is up and feeling better soon!
Who says now news is good news? Definitely not the Dachshund News.
