6. My old dog Eightball had to have surgery on his back left "knee"

He blew out both of his "knees" and we had to take him to a large animal vet to have the surgery done. The regular dog vets said that their versions of the surgery probably won't hold on a dog his size. The surgery went well, but he had to be kept calm for about a month without any real walks. All we could do was take him out the back door to go potty. He was really good about the whole ordeal and didn't need to wear the cone. He passed over the rainbow bridge about 5 years ago and my kitties still miss him. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. For most of Eightball's adult life he weighed in at 88 pounds.
