I'm curious why Zeke isn't walking after his surgery? What state are you in?

Update of Our Zeke.....He's given us the look that everyone talks about. This is the hardest thing we've ever had to do but as responsible pet owners we know its time to let him go to heaven. I've had to up his pain meds. He no longer looks happy. Up until this week he was fine with not being able to walk he enjoyed his cart. But now he can't even do that. So I'm going to call our vet in the morning and sometime with week when I can get a day off from work we are taking him we'll stay with him until the end and have him cremated so we can have him with us always. He has been one of the greatest joys of our life. Such and smart playfull and loyal boy.
Even at our worst time when my husband was being flown and rused to the hospital he waited outside at his side until the chopper took off and then wouldn't eat or drink until he came home we had to have him stay at the vets until we got back from the hospital with IV fluids to keep him going. When my husband came home he was so happy to see him he stayed right by his side during recovery at home. Thats just one of the many great memories we'll have of him. Anyway thanks for all the support on here.
I will be back after we add a new member to our family but no one could ever replace our Zeke.

Very sorry to hear this, Angela.

I know how much you love him and how much you wanted to give him as long a life with you as possible. Just know that you're doing the right thing. Strength to you.

Thanks guys I know you were all there with us and all the tips and support I got on here, on how to handle and take care of a disabled dog. I learned a lot the last year.
Zeke came into our home witha piece of pizza (he was scared of people until we gave him a piece of pizza then he was our best friend) and he'll go to heaven with a piece. We'll stop by the pizza place on the way to the vet and bring him by the river one last time. I better stop now. The tears are just flowing again, I don't want Zeke to sence anything is wrong we are going to keep our sprits up and try not to break down infront of him. With Gods help we can do this. I'll post and let you all know when he's gone to heaven to run free with all the other animals.

I'm so sorry, IMHO you're going thru the most difficult time possible when living with a much loved pet. A friend of mine always said that when you put your beloved dog down, you're taking his pain and making it your own.

Thinking of you and Zeke, you're both in my prayers.
