There are so many things to be grateful for.

As many know, Ryme was lame for several months over the fall and winter. We took a conservative approach and rested (for three months) and then hand walked him on an increasing schedule. He saw the chiropractor every month. In the past three or so weeks, he has been green-lighted to go back to full activity. So far, so good, as things have been going well with him. I took it really slow with him at first, but now he is pretty much back up to full speed, working and running.

This week I was able to get him radiographed by our vet in order to determine if there is any underlying skeletal issue with him that might prevent returning to full work. As it turns out his hips, back, and knee are all just great on the films! I was so prepared for a negative outcome that it was almost hard to accept the positive. I don't know if Ryme will make a trial dog but at the very least he can be a work dog and be happy and productive that way. There is much to be grateful for!
