Walking the Brown Carpet

Awards season is upon us. Celebrities are walking down the red carpet showing off the latest fashions and all that jazz. At our house, we kinda have the same thing. Except it's not red. And there aren't any cameras or celebrities. And it's just for a 17-year old dog and his bum knee. So yeah, JUST LIKE Hollywood!

Here he is this morning making his way down a section of our 45 ft of brown carpet that mom had to get from two different Wally Worlds.

Duncan! Duncan! Who are you wearing??

So far, the carpet runners have really helped. The rugs combined with our Adequan injections have resulted in zero falls in the last few days.

Mom, after discussing his knee issue with some of her doggie peeps, has ordered a new supplement called Ligaplex I to help rebuild some of the tissue in his knee. It should be here tomorrow.

An interesting side note: Apparently the old man has no trouble at all walking on the plain ol' kitchen floor when mom is in the kitchen cooking. It's some sort of "miracle" I suppose (can you sense me rolling my eyes?)

He really hates mornings.

He's pretty much learned to stay on the rugs (but as you can see above, maybe not first thing in the morning) and we're pretty happy with how he's been doing so far. Thanks for all the good vibes and POTP!

SIDENOTE for Bunny and her Mom: For some reason I cannot comment on your blog! This is driving me crazy! I didn't want to think I was ignoring you and your dreamboat brother! :)

  4. Well, that was a brilliant idea laying out the brown carpets for Duncan so he won't fall!

  5. How much alike our lives with the seniors are!!! We have those runners everywhere for Phantom. He also gets Adequan shots and a lot of other pain meds. Good for Duncan - keep on trekking, buddy..
