Fred's strange post op behavior videos

I can't figure out why Fred started walking like a drunken one legged pirate while outside. He doesn't walk like this inside. Even with the leash attached to his harness, he will do this. Here are a few videos of the difference from outside to inside. Any ideas? FYI. The inside videos were taken right after the outside video.

It looks to me like he is trying to lift his leg and that is why he's sort of flopping over outside, that'd be my first guess, he just can't balance to lift and pee?

That's what it looks like to me too.

Does he do it on something like a stone patio, or just on the grass? Is it possible that he's trying to pick that foot up higher than the grass (which is much higher than the pile of the carpeting) and can't figure out how to do it without bending his knee? If this is it, it could also be that forcing the foot forward though the grass is actually painful, even with the big bandage on.

I was thinking that the grass might not be even or is too long.

My guess is that the grass is not even and firm which is causing some sort of adjustment. I wouldn't be concerned if he is oK on good footing like he is indoors.

Poor baby! I think it has to do with the grass. They do tend to lift their feet up higher when walking in grass and I think that's where he's getting into trouble.

Cut the grass....still no change.

Cast comes off 1 week from tomorrow. Hopefully, he will use it correctly then. I'm afraid he is going to hurt himself!
