Second time's a charm.

Ali pushed himself into a standing position ALL BY HIMSELF for the second time yesterday evening… and this time I was able to grab my camera fast enough to take some pictures! He stood longer this time than the first time (at least long enough for me to snap seven photos, all the while cooing “Ali, Stay! Good boy! Good!!”); maybe it is easier for him to balance on our air mattress, or maybe it was because his back legs were in a wider, more natural stance. Either way, I am so glad I was able to capture the moment on film this time!!! I am so proud of my baby shepherd. We have so much farther to go, but this is progress! And that's all I keep wishing for.

Wow, sorry for what your doggy Ali is going thru! But what a charming blog and excellent header PIC that grabbed my attention.

I just surf around blogs sometimes to see all the interesting people around the world. (and animals)

Wishing you all the best on your's and Ali's journey!

Good boy Ali! I would think it would be harder to stand on an air mattress! Although, he does have four legs as opposed to my two...
It's amazing and wonderful! You must be stoked beyong belief!
