A Doggie Update
It occurred to me the other day that I haven’t posted any updates on the pooches lately. So to remedy that, today is a doggie update day.
First Torrey and the partially torn ACL. I mentioned before that I had taken her to our regular vet here, and he felt everything was healing great. I am very pleased to say that all is going well, and she is even getting some fetch time in. As long as she doesn’t do any leaping that is. She is just so glad to be able to run after sticks, or her frisbee. She isn’t favoring that leg at all anymore, and that is the best news ever.
I’m thrilled that everything I have done has helped her to heal, and she won’t need surgery. Yea!
Roxy is well, Roxy. She is showing signs of old age, but not slowing down any. I take her in the backpack when we go walking and she walks back. So she gets half the miles in, but it’s still plenty for her.
She likes running at the park in the evenings, as long as it’s not too hot. The older she gets, the less tolerant of heat she seems to be. She hasn’t had a bad back episode for a very long time (knock on wood), so managing her activity seems to be doing the trick there.
She is so glued to me, even while I am trying to get work done. She is just content to be nearby, and supervise. She is so much my special little friend.
The other night Al came to the park with us and enticed Torrey with cheerios to go down the slide. Roxy of course supervised, and made sure all was well.
Dogs are awesome, aren’t they?!
