Husky w/ short legs

Once again, I’ve taken a long absence from posting anything new. I’ve thought about things I want to write or share many times. It just never makes it to my site. Wow, if I remembered to post all the things that go through my head, people would definitely think I’m crazy. Maybe it is better for me to just keep them to myself…ha, ha. Anyway, here’s today’s post:
A co-worker has a dog named Chloe. She is a corgi. I’ve seen pictures of her and she’s absolutely one of the cutest dogs I’ve ever seen (second to my Eli though). Anyway, we talk about our pets a lot and have shared many of our experiences owning four legged friends. The other day, I showed him a photo of my halloween pumpkin that I carved this year (I’ll put that in a different post). I used a siberian husky stencil to carve it. It turned out great in my opinion. So, he joked and wanted to know if I could find a “corgi stencil”. At that point, I set out on a mission.
I searched the internet thinking it shouldn’t be that hard. No such luck. It seems that you can find a stencil for every other dog breed except for corgis. I thought for a minute and decided to try to make my own stencil from a regular photo. With photoshop open and a cute picture of a corgi, I got started. Not as easy as I thought it was going to be. I continued trying, determined that I would make it work. I finally gave in and admitted defeat.
Despite my failure, I did find something that turned out to be really cool! Here’s a picture of a corgi/husky mix. I never knew there was such thing! How adorable–I just had to share this with my co-worker. I hope you all think it’s cool too.

Slow motion Eli

Just a quick video I took of Eli wearing his brace–I turned into slow motion so that his vet could see whether or not the brace was fitting properly.  Just posted it so he could see online.

Eli’s Knee Brace

For all my family and friends, you guys are aware of Eli’s knee situation.  Just thought I’d post some video of him moving around in his knee brace.  He just got it yesterday and it took myself and two other adults to hold him down in order to get the thing on his leg.  I’m proud to say that I was finally able to get it on him by myself for the first time this morning.  We went for a quick (5 minute) walk… he absolutely LOVED it! (being able to go for a walk again, not the brace).  He was mad when I made him turn around to come back home.  So, when we got inside, I decided to shoot some video of him just walking around in the house.  I have to limit how long he wears it at first…to build up to it.  Same principle as “don’t wear new tennis shoes on a long hike- you have to break them in first”.  Anyway, this video isn’t much.  You can see at the end that he hasn’t figured out how to sit down with the brace on yet.  We’ll have to keep working on that one.  I plan to shoot more video and post it along with his whole story so that other people on the internet can find it and learn that there are other options to surgery.  For now though, just enjoy Eli… (more…)

Christmas for Eli 2009

This is video of Eli opening his Christmas present from Peggy!  He was very excited about getting a gift and only required some assistance once he started biting through the plastic.  He is such a crazy dog, but I love him!!  Thanks for the gift, Peggy (says Eli).

PS: The video is several minutes long so it make take 10-30 seconds to load fully.  It may jump or skip until then.  Sorry…
