Look Who's Walking!

A big THANK YOU to everyone for continuing to send positive healing vibes. I'm getting all of them and the power of the paw is working its magic on me. I'm feeling better every day and am continuing my laser therapy. In fact, I'm going to an appointment this morning.

I asked Mom to take some pictures and videos of me when she took me out yesterday evening. I still have to be carried to my "business" destination but when I get there I can walk! We went to see if the poodles were home last night because for some reason I like to poopie on their lawn. I know - TMI - but what can I say? Inquiring minds want to know!

Look at me go! I'm cruising all over the lawn! This is me on our lawn after we got back from the poodles' house. They weren't home so Mom took me back to our house where I refused to go potty. You can see that my right leg and foot don't work that great but they are starting to cooperate. I had a long talk with them yesterday while Mom was out and explained to them that I need them to do what I want them to do.

Even though I'm still on restricted exercise I can walk a little. A little today, a little more tomorrow and before you know it I'll be able to walk to the poodles' house! Yipee!

I'm so happy and I can't stop smiling. I wouldn't be where I am today without all your thoughts and prayers. I'm forever grateful for all the wonderful bloggy friends I have. You guys are the best!

My sweet, sweet Stubby!

I have been away for a few days and I am SO happy to come back and see your smiling face!

You are walking like a champ!! I wonder if you could make it to Oklahoma and we could go get some Popeye's together!? :)


THE PUGLET said...

DUDE! We've been thinking about you like everyday, wondering if your gimpy back is better. My human was worried, but I knew it would be fine.

SO happy to see you SO happy. As soon as my human can remember to move your 3 into her new phone, we will call and cheer :)

Wilma said...

Oh Stubby,
My heart about jumped out of my chest when I saw your smiling face and heard the news.
Now Mom just has to figure out what's wrong with her plug-in so I can watch your video. Don't ask me what the heck she means about plug ins, the puter looks plugged in to me!
That's the best news I've gotten this week, hopefully, you started a trend!

Winston (smilingpug) said...

Luv, Zoey & Phoebe

Hi Pearly Poo! You're making me blush! I am walking like a champ and getting stronger every day.

I'm working on a plan to take Mom's car and come down to Oklahoma to visit you. Shhhh. Don't tell her. It will be our little secret.

Stubby xoxo

Stubby said...

Hi Puglet! My gimpyness is going away! I know your human was worried and tell her thank you for calling Mom to check on me.

I can't believe your human got a new phone. I wonder how long it's going to take her to figure it out. Tell her to call anytime to check on me.

Stubby xoxo

Stubby said...

Hi Wilma! I don't know what a plug-in is either. What the heck? The video is working on my side and no pug has commented that they can't see it. Hmmm. I wonder what the problem could be. I'll have Mom look into it. Do you have a MAC? I wonder if that could be the problem. We are (so far) a PC family.

Thanks again for the well wishes. I'm pretty sure I'm starting a wellness trend!

Stubby said...

Hi Winston! Today is a happy day and I have all my blogger pals to thank for it. I'm getting around better every day and soon I'll be ready to play again. Yippee! I feel all the healing vibes you've been sending and I can't thank you enough!

Stubby xoxo

Stubby said...

Hi Klaus & Natty! Thanks so much for thinking about me. I'm overwhelmed with the love from all my friends. I owe you guys big time!

Stubby xoxo

Stubby said...

Hi Howie! Your maw is so smart! Mom got the cheeseburger (extra cheese of course!) and hung it out in front of me and it worked like a charm. I would have followed that cheeseburger to the moon because I love cheeseburgers. Time for another BBQ!

Stubby xoxo

Stubby said...

Hi Harry! You and I are totally on the same page. We poop where we like to poop and no place else.

I still can't believe your neighbors have 7 pugs. Isn't that against the law or something? At least you have a great poopy spot!

Thanks for sending all the pawsitive vibes. I'll keep getting better because as they work their magic on me!

Stubby xoxo

Stubby said...

Hi Puddles! My mom gets the tears in her eyes too! What's with our moms? I guess the tears are tears of joy because I'm doing so good.

The treatment is really cool. The laser shots beams right into my bones and it feels all tingly. But it totally works and now I swear by it too!

Stubby xoxo

Stubby said...

Hi Yoda & Brutus! I sure hope I can walk over to the poodles' house soon. That use to be my destination of choice but lately I've been carried there. Soon I will get there, don't you worry.

That's so cool that Mom saw the same wind farm that you guys saw. She really loves those wind farms but worries about all the little birdies that might get hurt in them.

Stubby xoxo

Stubby said...

Hi Zoey & Phoebe! If my walking looks hard now you should have seen it 2 weeks ago. I've made so much progress that Mom just cheers me on and doesn't get as leaky anymore.

I'm feeling the good vibes you're sending so keep them coming. They're working like a charm!

Stubby xoxo

Stubby said...

Hi Gen & Lefty! Mom is relaxing more and more every day since I'm doing so good. What about your mom? She is (along with the rest of us) worried sick about Lefty. I've send so many healing vibes your way that I just know your eye will fall right back into place. If not, I'll personally come over and put it in place!

Stubby xoxo

Stubby said...

Hi Josie Girl! I miss you so much! You can see that I'm walking so much better and that I might be ready for visitors in a week or so. YAY! Please tell your mom to bring you over here or maybe I can come by your house. We need some alone time, Josie, so we can catch up on things. And of course we'll have some Popeyes!

Stubby xoxo

Sequoia & Petunia said...


We are so happy to see you walks like lil old me (Tuni). I wooble around but I still get to my destination like you. Oh Mom is so happy you are walking now and I get carried out to my potty area so no biggie there buddy. Many hugs to you!!!

Tuni and Sequoia

Stubby said...

Hi Tuni & Sequoia! I've missed you guys! I'm so glad to hear from you and to show you that I'm walking - yay!

Tuni, you and I are so alike. We both wobble and have to be carried to go potty. We would look so funny walking down the street together - like a little old pug couple!

Stubby xoxo
