Complaint of the Day

OK, I'm going to complain even though I have no right to. I'm tired of having to leash walk Katie everywhere we go (including in my house and fenced yard). I'm a little discouraged by the lack of progress in the last week or 2. Its like she did 4 months of progress in 25 days and now we are just at this plateau. In fact, I almost think she has looked worse the last couple of days. Rehab is just plain boring (Katie would agree with me on that)..................15 minutes of caveletti work is a very long time! I'm tired of people at the park thinking I'm weird because my dog has scrunchies on her ankles. I'm upset that she's retired. Now if you had told me that this was as good as it was going to get that night sitting in the ER vet's waiting room........ I would have been extremely relieved. I just cannot believe how well a dog can bounce back from a spinal injury. But now we are on Day 30 something and I'm spoiled. I'm used to seeing amazing progress. However, like I said, I have no right to complain. Life is good and we are very lucky............. just ignore me right now :-).

You and Katie are both entitled to be bored with things and be ready to scream...or give up...or, in her case, slack off. Just put color-coordinated scrunchies on Katie and call it haute couture.

Sam, yesterday: pulled the thyroid pills off the kitchen counter (but didn't open the bottle), kidnapped the pill splitter (with the razor-sharp cutter) and hid it in his bed, stole a jar of peanut butter (and ate part of the lid). All in about 10 minutes.

Thanks for the support, Kathy. Luckily the therapist gave me the green light to start hiking which will greatly enhance our rehab efforts and brighten our days.

Do you want some cheese with that whine or some liver brownies?
just kidding:-) Platues happen, I'm sure you will move past it.

Thanks, Denise. I know we will.

P.S. I prefer cheese. :-)
