I just found out that I need to have surgery on my shoulder. Our dear Australian Shepherd, almost a year old, needs more attention than I can give him, and he doesn`t understand why I can`t play with him. I`m afraid he might lean on me or jump and prolong my recovery or worse. Any advice would be great. Thank you, I don`t have all the answers for you and, in the end, it`s often a very personal decision.

We brought him home, and honestly, I feel like it was going wrong from the beginning. My husband became Manny`s alpha, and that was good. My husband got sick last May and died in August. I tried to step in and become Manny`s new Alpha. I`m alone now and I don`t have time to spend with Manny and play with him, like my husband did. I don`t know what Manny`s story was, but I inferred that he had been abused, probably by someone in construction.
