Woohoo for poo...
We woke up at 5:30 a.m. and went outside, just Ched and me...so that was cool. When D woke up, we trekked outside together and had some relief.
You know things are back to basics when you get excited when your dog poops. Well, this was a major achievement of the day in addition to a nice long walk from our living room outside and back. We aren't talking little girlie poop...this was serious business that warrented applause.
After that, I ran to the store to buy her a wife beater t-shirt (for lack of a better name). The plan is to take her to work with me tomorrow and the shirt will protect the wound and keep it clean. I was at the store 10 minutes and got a phone call from D that Ched was crying, uncomfortable, and her muscles were conctracting along her whole leg-less side. So, I grabbed the shirts and got home quickly.
Commence puppy massage. For the last two hours, after a dose of meloxicam and half an hour of the heating pad, we have chilled and massaged the patient. She is resting comfortably with Ina Garten on the tube and brother Oliver supervising.
