Week 5!

So.. we made it to week 5! Oddly it seems longer than that.. this was about the time last time that she got much more antsy in her crate.. i think shortly thereafter she destroyed her ortho bed in protest.

Not much to report.. i took her off the benedryl yesterday.. so far so good, but we'll see how it goes after i mow the lawn =) I'm really hoping it was related to the intubation because i already have a dog with allergies, i was hoping to avoid that this time around. Oh well, it could certainly be worse.

One more week and we start our short walks. I'm looking forward to that.. she would be too if she knew =)

It's tough these days.. she's so happy to have some respite from that crate that it's hard for me to put her back in there. I miss my girl! But it's for her own good. I know that. And i know that despite how great she looks and how great that leg looks.. one mistep too early in the game can send us into a tailspin.. so..back in the crate she goes.

Two surgeries back to back like this is starting to take its toll, i have to admit.. it's already been 5 months of this.. i think we're all a bit weary.

  1. I know how you feel when you say you miss her. I miss Parker too! I was away for over 2 weeks and then came back and had a cold 2 days later he was limping, so needless to say, I haven't been able to walk with him and do the things we do together. Hang in there!
