Kempton Update

Bad news...

Kempton tore his Cranial Cruciate Ligament and will be needing surgery.

Poor baby, it breaks my heart to see him hobble along...he can't put any weight on his back left leg.

I am waiting to hear from the surgeon today, to find out more specifics, schedule the procedure, and find out if he is allowed to travel for the holidays.

Once the procedure is done (assuming it is successful), it sounds like the recovery time is up to 3 months...with the first 8 weeks of very limited activity.

Not cool.

But, what do you do?

He's family.

Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers...


  1. He and you are in my thoughts!! It is very hard to have a large dog on very limited activity. Best wishes!

    Happy Thanksgiving!!

  2. Good luck, poor furry baby!
