Mike and I were away on vacation this past weekend and left Luna with fellow greyhound enthusiast, Mary Pat. She has three other greyhounds to keep Luna company (Opal, Emerald, and Tanzanite). We were very nervous leaving Luna because we didn't want her to be a burden, but our fears were quickly put to rest when we received a phone call the night we dropped her off. "I just wanted to let you know that she has been walking around the house unassisted for a few hours." This was just the start of our Christmas miracle.
Every time I called to check in we had another fantastic report on Luna's progress. First, she was walking around unassisted. Then, she was trotting with the other greyhounds. By the end of the weekend she was basically a normal dog with a funny gait. She can now do a slow run, go up and down the stairs (but she is very nervous about them), and walk outside for her potty time. The best part is her helicopter tail has returned which makes us so happy.
