As we begin the second week (of six where she is not permitted to walk except to potty) we do all we can to keep her entertained. She managed to chew her inflatable collar and puncture it., but we believe her wound is healed enough now to tolerate the small amount of licking she does. She is beginning to grow coat on her leg, and the growing fur must itch. When we take her out to potty, she puts some weight on her foot, but not so much as to worry us. The veterinarian stated that it was fine to put weight on the foot as she will tolerate it, but she is still on restriction. She is not permitted to go on a walk or play with other dogs. She is still on “bedrest”.
We take her on car rides with us, so that her scenery changes, and so that she always has company with her. She enjoys her rides, and is usually exhausted once we come home:
Today (4/3/17) we had a nice sunny day (the snow has just melted), so I took her outside to just sit in the sun and suck up a bit of warm sunshine. She enjoyed it a great deal.
