    I knew nothing about shiba inus dogs so looked them up online. They are cute but too much dog for me according to this site:
    https://www.yourpurebredpuppy.com/reviews/shibainu.html

    "People often find themselves drawn to the Shiba Inu because he is conveniently sized, handsome and hardy, easy to groom, and clean and quiet indoors. However.... these interested potential owners must explore this breed in more depth, else they might be making a big mistake.
    The Shiba Inu, you see, is very challenging to raise and train. A bold, high-spirited "big dog in a small body," he must always be kept on-leash, for he has a high prey drive and quick reflexes and will pursue anything that moves. He can outrun and outdodge any human....and frequently does, for he has an independent spirit. Shibas are true runners..."

    Haha, the Shibu Inus reminds me of a Jack Russell terrier. I wouldn't choose a high-strung, high energy dog. I had a high energy dog with my Lab/Border Collie mix, but she was far from destructive or manic. She waited until she got outside to unleash her wonderful herding instincts and agility skills.

    IM, we have flown frequently with the little ones and itís super easy. I have a side sling I wear and then your hands are free. I practice around the house and other places so by the time you fly the dog lays in it fine.

    After 3 months got my cast off and my wrist is stiff and feels weird. The hand specialist gave me exercises to do and said if not better in a month he will order PT. I still have some pain.

    When I broke my wrist 2 years ago the physical therapist was an excellent help! He got everything moving again, then I practiced the exercises he gave me. I also spent lots of time just working at getting my healing hand/wrist to mirror the good one. That really helped as well.

    Since I joined here in the Summer of 2005, I have had three hospitalizations and each time I felt this, that my world was shrinking. Especially with the last one - which was due to a liver infection. The recovery from that one took longer than I would have guessed and the first few days home I was in a great deal of pain and on pain killers - oxycodone, the pill that's such a big deal these days.

    Getting to the point, I spent a good week at home doing very very very little, kind of staring off into space and feeling absolutely blank and weak and exhausted. One day I woke up and my pain was almost gone, there was no need for a pain killer, and I felt not cured but a little more with it. My mind was no longer blank and I was having coherent thoughts and even had the energy to make a phone call. From there things slowly got better and a few weeks later I was back in the game again.....I'm hoping you find this to be the same for you.....some time passes and then back in the game 100 percent again. Wishing you the best, TT......Rob
