Sorry it happened and glad you're ok, your pup will recover, like others have said don't make a fuss, just go about your normal routine.

Our Ranger has a pretty active tail, he has cleared the coffe table on a few occasions, but it still pales in comparison to our lab Daisy (rip). She had the thick otter tail and she'd beat that thing...

Glad all is going well with Jaeger. its stressful and the recovery is long, but it's worth it, Ranger has done well, he is a running fool, he's pushing a ball at me right now wanting to play.

Not unrealistic at all, do what works best for you.

Sorry you lost Rookie, seven is way too soon. hs sucks bad, it takes so many. We've lost a lab and a malamute to it. My girls just turned 6 and I sometimes wonder how much time we will have.

Sorry to hear about Malika's passing, good that you were able to have 14.5 years with her, sounds like she was a very smart girl. Good luck on your search when you do decide to have another!
