It’s been almost seven years since Carrie Underwood’s pup Ace walked down the aisle at her wedding to Mike Fisher, and now the dog’s got a different kind of spring in his step.
The singer shared on Instagram on Tuesday that the canine suffered a herniated disk before Christmas and is working his way back to perfect health with hydrotherapy.
“He was completely paralyzed in his back end for a couple of days and, with rest, soon got mobility back in his right side,” she wrote with a video of the pup walking tall in a water tank. “His left side is slowly getting better but we have a long way to go.”
Ace hates Halloween.

In the clip, Underwood can be heard cheering on her beloved rat terrier — who has a sibling in Underwood’s other pup Penny — by saying “Good job!” and “You’re moving it!”
Both dogs have been stars on her Instagram page for years and with this post getting over a million views in just a few hours, “megastar” might be a better adjective to describe Ace.
“He’s taking his physical therapy like a champ!” the proud dog mom wrote. “And, of course, this is too adorable not to post!”
