  1. Awesome. I can’t wait ’till Indi can go on walks again. She is only 1.5 weeks post-op. Did you notice the typo? How long…going on walks” it says “3-4 months”, and I think it should read “3-4 weeks”.

  2. Hey Indi, THANKS! Hahah, just wanted to see if anyone was paying attention! Just kidding. We appreciate your sharp eye. Yes indeed, it’s supposed to be “weeks.” Just now changed it.
