He's cute, but broken

This is Moe:

This is Moe's ramp:
that my brother built

Poor little Moe is a gimp!

It started when he was having trouble jumping up on the bed a while back. Instead of darting into the bedroom and hurling his 55 pounds up there like some sort of out-of-control missile, he would instead walk into the room and stand with just his front paws on the bed, staring at my mom. My mom would then reach over and hoist him up.

Not like him at all. He's too much of a spaz to be considered that lazy.

So, even though Moe was still running around in the yard and being a general menace, the fam took him to the vet to get checked out.

The vet's diagnosis?

Torn ACL.

In BOTH knees.

This little maniac has been sprinting, jumping and acting wild while he's got torn ACLs. We have no idea when it happened, which makes my mom look like the worst dog parent EVER.

Well, it turns out the running can only last so long when both of your ACLs are essentially disintegrated. As of last weekend, Moe aggravated one of his legs, so now he's gimping around on just 3. Another trip to the vet had him scheduled for surgery in early August, but until then, he needs a ramp to actually go down the 2 steps to get outside.

Brave or stupid? We'll never know.

The idiot was running around in the living room today wanting to play with his rope toy while Mom, Dad, and I all yelled at him to quit hurting himself which only made him more excited.

Sometimes cuteness wins over everything else. One of the pomeranians (I know) I grew up with jumped out of my brothers arms and broke her leg. They always still manage to find their ways around.

I wish I were kidding.

My pup is named Moe too. And it sounds like he is equally idiotic.

Cute dog!
