Made it to the mailbox!

It's an odd feeling to realize that a hound like Watson who can wander for miles and miles now has to measure his days in steps. The past week was quite rough, not only because of the colitis, but because he was also having problems on the stairs to get in/out of the house. It was painful to see him stumble on weak legs and gasp for breath just to make it to the yard for a bathroom break.

Today, however, is another day.... he's obviously feeling much better.... Well enough to make it down our 300' driveway and back to check the mail. It's been over 2 weeks since he's walked that far in one trip and he did it with little effort! The roller coaster continues, but I will cherish these happy times as they come.
