We adopted a chihuahua from a local Rescue about 8 months ago. Found out about a month ago she had Luxating patellas (slipping knee caps). We took her in for surgery on her right knee 2 weeks ago this coming Tues (May 3rd). We were really expecting her to be lamed up and in alot of pain. 2 weeks later we have a hard time keep her from running! We take her in tomorrow to get her stitches out. We had a physical therapist examine her on thursday and said that she is about a week and a half ahead in her recovery.

Here's a few pics:

Good to hear the pup is coming along! Luxated patellas can be awfully painful, the first time I saw a dog with one, I figured that the leg had to be broken to hurt like that.

Cute pup, hope he recovers fully.
