    I've finally managed to get some photos of our trip uploaded to facebook so here is the link if you guys would like a look https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1&l=112809fd61

    It really is only a small bit of what we actually did.. There are over 3600 photos on the camera and over 1000 on my phone and I've managed to reduce it to just over 100 on Facebook so I'm quite proud of myself (and very exhausted!)

    Check out the latest video of Roxy that was taken yesterday (hope it works!). She went to the physio today and apparently the physio was finally confident enough to say that she will definitely walk again

    Miracle dog.

    I think my first recommendation for anyone else who has a dog that suddenly can't walk - apart from vet visit and check for ticks - is
    - wait and see...

    How long did it take all up for her to get better and what seemed to work best?

    Thanks guys
    They still have absolutely no idea what caused it so hopefully it doesn't return. Mum no longer lets her go outside unsupervised just in case it was caused by a snail or rat. Roxy loves being inside so much!

    It took almost 4 months from when she got sick to when she was completely recovered - it was a very long journey! They used a combination of steroids, acupuncture and physiotherapy (massage, stretching, floating in water) for treatment, as soon as she started to sit up they took her off steroids and let the acupuncture and physio do the rest

    A bit of bad news..

    Yesterday mum noticed that Roxy was a bit wobbly in her back end and struggling to stand so she took her to the vet.. the vet gave her an injection for arthritis and some antibiotics (not sure why?!) and sent her home. This morning she was much worse.. her front legs have lost their strength too and she can handly stand but can't bend her legs in order to sit down (?). She is back at the vet at the moment and they're trying to work out what is wrong.. they're trying anti-inflamatory injections at the moment to see if that helps. It was a very hot day yesterday (36 degrees) so they're not sure if that was a factor or if its what she had before, returning. Her whole body has been shaved and it is definitely not a tick.

    Will update when I hear something..
