That really sucks. I had a pit mix with bad knees too. Did surgery on one but to no avail. She lasted 16 years. Love that dog. Walked her down a ramp to get down the steps holding a strap around her waste. She always went outside to do her business. Even when she was almost paralyzed. Hope your dog does well. It’s a painful thing.

My dog(s) are my children. I can't stand it when something is wrong with them especially since they can't tell us what it is. Take good care of her because we all know that no person on earth will love you as much or be as loyal as your dog.

Our dog had an attack a couple years ago where she just suddenly began screaming, and dragging her back legs. vet said it was a pinched nerve, and she spent a week in the vet hospital. She was finally sent home, and we were told there was nothing they could do that might not just make things worse. She eventually began to use her legs gradually and fully recovered to about 95%. Then almost a year later it happened again, and we went through the same process. The 2nd time she recovered faster, but has never gotten full use of her left rear leg. She drags it, and trips occasionally, but just keeps trying to do her best, regardless of things not working. She's been on steroids and pain meds for the last two years, and vet said he doesn't see any reason to ever take her off either.
Hope thye can at least make your dog comfortable, and maybe get a cart to support her back legs so she can get around.

I saw you had the gasser up for sale. Hate to see you sell it, but understand what our pets mean to us. Never get what we have invested in these cars usually, unless you buy a lot of bargain parts. I did well on my Falcon at $11k I was asking, and it sold just hours after posting it. But I was in it half that amount, in parts and buying the car to start.

It's a 430 with an over bore, so not a high winding engine, and more of a torque motor. So probably why he shifts early to keep it in the torque curve. But he did say he has a 150 nitrous shot, so no need to wind it way out.

The point was. He smoked the Toyo with these problems.
