We have some news regarding Luka. Three weeks ago after a training session he started limping and since it didn’t heal over the weekend we took him to see a vet. The diagnosis at the time was at least a sprained knee, maybe even torn ligaments in the knee. After two week of full rest the knee was ok, but the vet still saw something odd in the way Luka moved.

So an X-Ray of Luka’s lower back was taken and in it we could see that his prostate was the size of an apple. The only way to control the size of his prostate without continuous medication was to neuter him, which was done a week ago. He is healing well and has to wear the collar for only a few more days.

The collar isn’t all bad, it can be used to carry things…

And Luka is still his happy and goofy self.

The toys in these pictures were gifts for the boys from our reader Robin, whom we ment last September in the States. The boys say thanks!
