DogBlogging... Google a world of wonder :) 

Those of you following this site are well aware of my sweet Indy and her CCL surgery last month. But you didn't know about Indy, and her CCL surgery in 2002. Now lest you get confused, Indy seems to not be an overly unique dog name... recall Dr. Henry Jones, Sr. uttering, "We named the *dog* Indiana," to which Sallah replies, incredulously, "The dog? You are named after the dog?" (those of you keeping a scorecard might note that Indy is NOT the only name in that sequence you have seen applied to one of my pack...). How does one find two CCL injured Indys? Google...

The Indy pictured (clickable) at the right is a happy resident of the Tomorrow Hill Farm B&B (a VERY cool place regardless of their dog) in Grand Junction, Colorado. She was, at the time of injury, significantly older (+5ish years) than my Indy. Her people elected a procedure called a tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) which is the thing mentioned in the comments (here? dKos?) as an option for my girl when my Indy's injury was first diagnosed. My vet preferred the artificial ligament replacement, given her age and weight.

THF's Indy (a sweet border collie of wonderful, fuzzy, white and black border collieness) is also a retired therapy dog - something we are also considering for my Indy (a fuzzy, muttly Chowish Aussie of fuzzy, splotchy-tongued Chowish muttliness), given the wonderful impact her presence had on my classroom full of at-risk teens. She is still an active B&B host as she moves into the honored role of senior dog. If summer plans go right, my Indy will meet THF's Indy while Jen and I are driving one leg of the Oregon/Minnesota route to or from school.
