    What a big relief Brian. Something has been warning you against that surgery all along and now it has proved to be right. I am so glad for you that Christmas will be much more laid back and relaxed now.

    Have a good Christmas Brian, you deserve it more than most over what you've been through today.
    Warmest wishes

    Oh Brian! I am so happy for you and Rosie... What good news I still can't get Daisy's picture of of my head with her tongue sticking out in the snow.

    Brian, thats great news. Sometimes vets tend to rush in, but there was obviously something that you felt was not right with it.

    You, Rosie and the rest of your gang can now have a lovely Christmas.

    Wow -- that's a dramatic shift at the last minute, and I would find that a but confusing (though don't know the whole background to Rosie's case of course!). Is Ben a vet or an orthopaedist? If a vet, if I were in your shoes I'd really want a specialist opinion in 6 weeks and probably not a vet's again if it was really that hard for them to call... Wasn't this grade a 2? Most orthopedists would operate on a grade 2 because it is likely to only get worse over over time and cause a lot of pain as the dog ages, and they recover much better while young. The surgery takes a lot of aftercare but can transform a dog's life. I don't really understand how they called the grade and thought it serious enough for surgery, then changed opinion... and if it was bad enough for them to have considered surgery, whey they would OK a dog running around in snow etc now?! Are they saying it was never that serious? Had they not done an xray until immediately before a possible surgery?
