Status: Lily

Note: we have so much going on, I decided to post individual updates on each family member.

Lily is doing great! She is no longer on any meds and generally seems to be adjusting to life as a “tripod”. Our fear is that her other leg will “blow out” before this one is healed. I don’t think she can learn to be bipedal on her front legs!

She has started challenging gates; if I don’t latch one well while unloading stuff, she will pull it open with her nose. Then she goes for a walk about in the neighborhood. But when she returns she lies down for hours! I am sure she is both tired and has some pain.

I suggested we get some Rimadyl for pain from the vet but Donna said “NO!” because she will feel even better and overdo! I referred to this as “tough love” care!

She still looks funny with her shaved leg! And she looks kind of subdued since she went for a walk yesterday.
