Bucky Stumbles into 2009

Thanks to all who asked about Bucky and wished him well. Bucky had another episode of back problem over the holidays. For couple of days he had a terrible limp and had trouble getting up. This picture was taken on new year's day. I was able to get him go outside on his own, but it seemed that he could no longer get his legs through the doggie door. Sometimes we had to carry him all the way out to the backyard, put him down gently so he could do his business. Poor guy can't keep the back leg up any more, how humiliating.
This is the third year in a row he has back or neck problem during the winter, I'm beginning to think maybe the cold and wet weather is doing a number on the old bones. We need a winter home in Vegas.

Sounds like a good enough reason to me.

My old bones (and joints) sympathize.

No... a winter home in Hawaii. Mexico. Cozumel... then I'd visit always!

Poor Bucky, is it arthritis I wonder? Anyway I agree if the snow weren't enough of a reason this sure would be!

We hope Bucky gets feeling better soon!

Bucky needs a nice winter retreat, and a hand-knit sweater.
