Sirius of the Week for August 25 - 31, 2002
Pooh-Bear is a 4 year old, super friendly Akita who
lives with his person mom and dad and canine brother
in Texas. He loves to go for walks in the countryside,
visit the cows in the pasture, and go for rides.
Pooh-Bear has hip dysplasia in both hips -- his left
was worse than the right, with no socket to speak of.
When he was 1 year old, he had surgery to replace his
left hip; 6 months after that he was running and
playing as if he had no problems at all.
Pooh-Bear's site to learn more about hip dysplasia,
his surgery, and wonderful recovery.
