Stair Steppin

Boomer went on a walk yesterday.  He walked farther than he ever has in the last 1 month and 13 days.  He was tail waggin’ happy and never slowed down.  When we got in he ran over to his water bowl, got a big drink and jumped up on the couch like he was his old self again.  I am really looking forward to more days like that in the future.  This morning he went downstairs to go out in the back yard, (9 fairly steep steps) then all the way upstairs (17 steps) to eat with the pack.  I was worried he might be a bit sore today but he isn’t.   I am still going to block the stairs until supper time because I don’t want him to overdo it and have a setback.

Stair stepping is good for human exercise, I wonder if it is good for strength building that remaining back leg?  Hmm…

  2. Not being a rehab therapist I can’t say if it’s good for strengthening but it’s definitely good to help with balance and “body awareness” as well as confidence on tricky surfaces.

    Yay for Boomer!
