Arrival Story: I stayed for two weeks, in SC, after I was saved from a GA shelter, I am now in NJ loving my forever home !
Bio: I was pulled from the Spaulding County Animal Shelter Friday by a rescue worker in GA. She kept me until Saturday.Today Sammy and Jeb's mom came to get me and took me to Charleston, SC. I am pretty sure that Cherry's mom will come to get me and give me a forever home. She is definitely coming to get me and we will see from there. Sammy's mom says there is NO WAY she won't fall in love, so keep your fingers crossed for me! 3/19 -Loving NJ and just need to convince Daddy he wants another pup, Mom says piece of cake! Daddy said I am a good Dog!
3/17/09 - 2 years in my forever home!!!
Great news, the swelling is gone, and all my joints are working right, I get to wean off the drugs!! I am still not allowed any jumping or running like a maniac for a few more weeks, and no bunny chasing either!!
The Surgeon wants someone to look at it again in 4 to 6 weeks, which is when my annual appt. is anyway. And I need to ration my jerky treats until I lose my love handles........
All in all it was a great day, and now I can take longer walks to burn off some energy!!! I just hope my squeakie toys won't miss me too much!!
Well, I should be used to restricted activities by now!! Geez, seems like I can't win!!!
I injured my CCL in my right hind paw. I have a bunch of fluid around the joint. They gave me drugs (Rimadyl & Tramadol) and told Mom just short walks, no jumping, running, etc........ I have an appt with a Surgeon next Friday, if they say I need to be operated on, we will hopefully be able to wait until the weather gets a bit better. Can't imagine using 3 legs to get through all of this snow!!
I started limping again at the end of October. Mom noticed right away, so off to the Vet's we went. I am on another month of Doxycycline, and Tramadol to use as needed for pain. Also, the dreaded restricted activity for a few more days, even though my joints look good.
All in all it isn't bothering me, except for not being allowed to chase any critters. I have gotten a few new squeakie toys to play with (I know, like I don't have enough) and they sure do squeak!!!!
Mom and I did spend a few days in Maryland visiting the Kids. We painted the baby's room and I tried to chase Tiger the cat. Rallyn and I did wrestle a lot, but our Moms were constantly telling us to ease up so my joints weren't hurt. Moms can be such fun wreckers.
Daddy will be home for Thanksgiving!!! By then I will be allowed to go running with him!!!!
Mom says we will have a house full for Turkey Day, that means tons more belly rubs!!!
Gotta go to bed now!! I hope to spend more time on Dogster soon!!
