As you know, Gus had the knee surgery and had every possible complication including blowing out the opposite side hip joint. Although he doesn’t consider himself disabled….I wish I had done things differently when he first had symptoms. As always….you’re the best!

My note:

The above picture is from my (Deborah’s) files…Gus enjoying the day in his porch sling I made, using pulleys and my favorite cheap harnesses (Travelin’ Dog from Petsmart online-use in rear and sometimes front). Owner Mom could help him outside during the day and then get him upright using the pulleys without as much stress to her body. I think Gus weighs more than she does!
