Gramma passed away today, peacefully and surrounded by family and love. I'm not sure if there is any 'good' way but under the circumstances I guess this would be all we could ask for. She was a tough lady with a heart of gold, she didn't mince words but she wasn't cruel either. Always wanted … Continue reading Rest In Peace Vóvó
I think this has probably been one of the longest weeks in my life, I'm sure there have been many over the years but this one comes at a time when I'm finally happy and comfortable in my life, in my own skin so truly comfortable that this stress is now a BIG shock to … Continue reading The Longest Week
Sometimes life just sucks, simple as that. There is no way of making it okay, no way of making it bright, it just is what it is, and that's sucky!!! I was finally at the nursing home to see gramma (my uncle called and gave me the low down, that perpetuated it) and it appears, … Continue reading Some times life just isn’t fair …
So the good news is the puppy dog is doing great! She had her stitches removed yesterday and the vet said she was putting a nice amount of weight on her leg! Everything seems to be healing nicely and we are free to ramp up the rehab! 🙂 We got lucky again in that too! … Continue reading Rotti update – and other stuff ….!
I've been spending a lot of time in the garden this year, with a recovering Rotti at home and trying to stay close we have had a lot of 'free' time to fill. Our gardens are huge and never seem to get the attention they need. Well we give them lots of attention, they just … Continue reading Rotties and gardening
Well our baby girl seems to be doing really well, I must admit this has been much less traumatic than what I was fearing! Woohoo!! 😀 The incision site is healing nicely, the bruising around her leg and ankle is practically gone and just a small amount left around her back side. The ankle has … Continue reading Rotti recovery, 1 week update
Well everything seems to be moving along nicely. The fur on her leg is just barely starting to grow back and it feels soft now and not like rough dry skin. She doesn't seem to have any issue with us petting or rubbing her leg and doesn't appear to be in discomfort, so much so … Continue reading Day 5 TPLO post op
An important part of the TPLO recovery is to ice the area a few times per day for 10 to 15 minutes each time. She is not too keen on the idea of laying on her side or having a cold bean bag on her leg! I'm sure there is a good amount of anxiety … Continue reading Rotti Recovery Day 2 – 1 day post op
She's home now, resting comfortably in the sun from her first surgery. It was done yesterday at noon-ish and she was home by 6:30 pm. She seems much better then what I was fearing she would be and doesn't seem to be suffering much discomfort at all. We have a variety of medications to keep … Continue reading Fur Baby is doing well!
Okay so life update - children, gramma, family and dogs ... Children: both of the boys are doing well. The oldest is really coming into his own now I think and seems happier then he has been in some time. It is a relief to know that things are finally normalizing (if there is such … Continue reading Some times no amount of positive thinking can make it okay…
