Amber – 6000 Miles
"Another year has passed and Amber continues to thrive. The enclosed photo of Amber was taken on her 12th birthday. As you can see, she is doing very well. She still acts like a pup. You will recall that you replaced her left hip.
Amber on her 12th birthday.
Amber loves to jog with me. We run for about an hour five days a week. She is unleashed. During the last 5 ½ years since her hip replacement, Amber has run approximately 6000 miles.
I hope this information will be useful to you and will show other dog owners that dogs can truly have “quality life” after hip replacement."
Amber – 8000 Miles
8000 Miles and Still Going Strong
Amber’s owner wrote the following:
"Another year has passed and Amber Hoff continues to thrive.. She is now 14 1/2 years young. She is doing very well. She still acts like a pup.
During the last 8 years since her hip replacement, Amber has run approximately 8000 miles. I suspect she may be the record holder for most miles run by a dog on a total hip replacement."
Amber – 9000 Miles
Amber ran with her owner regularly on her hip replacement for 9 years until she died of natural causes when she was 15 years of age. By that time, she had accumulated about 9000 miles during her happy “senior years”.
