Some of you may recall that Keba broke his hind leg back on Dec.9, 2012 after an unfortunate encounter with a piece of firewood. It is with great relief that I would like to report that to this point, he has made a full recovery and is expected to continue as such. Xrays show bones have knit nicely with minimal displacement. There was concern as well about a wound that developed under the splint but this has healed as well. It has been a long, tedious and expensive proposition to this point with numerous 30 mile trips to the vet, bandage changes, booty on off so bandage stays dry with snow and then mud and then snow and then...., cone on the head at night as well as trying to keep him mostly confined as well as the limitations put on his brother to leave his buddy alone. He handled it all with great aplomb, standing and offering his leg to put the booty on etc... They all loved him at the vet as he became known as 'Handsome'. It will still be a month before he can be off lead and even then under full supervision. The worst is now over at last with wonderful results. Just thought I'd like to put that out there. I want to do a shout out THANKS to Georgina who has been in regular contact with me offering support along the way.

best to all
