    Default Newbie ALERT

    Hi Everyone,

    I am a first timer in any Forum and raising a fur child, so please forgive me if I ask a question that may be considered silly. I am looking forward to learning journey on how to ensure my puppy is very happy and healthy.

    Thank you for your warm welcome. Like you guys I think my little boy is lovely at the moment he is recovering from luxating patella surgery on both knees, the poor darling, but he has been very brave about it all but is hating the fact he is on limited exercise ruling out rough tumble play with his cousin the cat. And of course the cat likes to tease him into wanting to play!

    Yes bit of an emotional time, recovery time trying to know what's good, not right, too much or too little. Of course the little man is being very tolerant of my "wait", "stop" and chairs pushed up against walls "no jump" But every once in awhile he breaks out I call it his mad minute (Figure 8 running top speed inside then outside). Going to try a hydro Pet spa this weekend build some muscles and release some pent up energy and frustration... Beach to cold this time of the year.

    Yes I have been checking out cavies thread and have had the best laugh... Though some of these big dogs are just as cute with their antics "My new Kitten" what a hoot.

    Welcome Maximus.

    Sorry to note your pups problems at such a young age. Swimming, however, is the best thing for them. Try and do as much as you can.

    Not sure if there are any dog friendly lagoons around your area but if there is, and you can go in so you are knee deep, let him swim for 10 minutes and then you can have a game of fetch to dry him off and warm him up again. I say lagoons because the water in the shallows will be warmer than the sea.

    Welcome.. you own my fav little dog...I do like cav's

    Your little one will be fine....Even though it is very tough, be very strict with the limited exercise. It will be better for the long-term
