I'll keep this post brief but two wonderful things hit us while we were in the desert sunshine. One was that R was running a lot and very fast but he didn't limp once. We could never discern any hitch in his stride.
The vets told us that it took a year to get the full benefit of CUE surgery. Now I believe it. I'm so grateful that we did it, and we gave him these pain-free days of romping. Every day, week, month, and year of a dog's life is precious, and we feel as if we managed to get him more fun time in his life through CUE surgery.

As for her recovery from being belted by the evil woman out on our trails, Shyla seems to have concluded that women on trails are scary. She won't approach any women on trails, even ones who she knows. If a woman appears, Shyla hides. In contrast, she will greet men, as long as they aren't paying attention to her - which is exactly how she dealt with all people on the trails before she was hit by that evil woman.
I hope that we never see that woman again. It turns out that Shyla isn't her only canine victim, and the neighborhood is tightening its borders to make sure that the evil woman doesn't trespass again to get into the little sanctuary behind our houses.
Now, I am excited to be able to visit my friends' blogs. We had no cell service for most of our trip so I've been away for too long!
