Riley’s X-Rays 

I now have discs of Riley’s “before surgery” and “after surgery” X-rays from both vet clinics. Figured I’d post the photos (because, now that she feels better, they’re pretty fascinating).              Advertisements

Riley, my (newly) bionic dog

So…my already-amazing-and-fantastic dog is now even more special. Saturday, July 11th, 2015 5:30pm I thought it was like any other hot Saturday afternoon.
