Puppy Drama and whatnot....


So this is my pup, post surgery. She's been really good about being home and not licking those darn stitches. She had her whole knee fixed. A torn cruciate ligament is a big deal in her type of dog (Lab/Aussie Shepherd mix). We aren't supposed to let her run or jump. She can take slow leashed walks to get her used to using the leg again.

Lana is a very, I mean VERY active dog. For her to be forced not to run or do any of her usual stuff has been really hard on her. She loves to play fetch and just run in general. We have to wait 4 weeks until she can do any of that stuff again.

She gets her stitches out Friday and she can swim if she wants to, but still no running.....

Ya know, I always find it fascinating how attached we become to our pets. Lana is my best friend. I talk to her like a friend and she puts up with my chatter. It's weird. I don't know what I'd do without her.

Anyway, that's what has been going on in my life lately. On a slightly different note, I went to the mall on Saturday. Not really a big deal to most, but for someone like me who has a case of agoraphobia, it was a monumental achievement! I am soo proud of myself! I haven't been to the mall in years and I used to LOVE to go!

Ok, that's enough dribble for today. I hope to get back to my usual artsy type posting soon. Thanks for stopping by!

Peace!!

Congratulations! The mall trip was major. My mom battles agoraphobia, so I completely understand what that took on your part. You Go Girl!

Tell Lana I'm sending her happy thoughts. Will she be able to resume full puptivities when her 4 weeks are up? Hope so.

Keep us informed!

Hey Margo, she should be able to slowly increase her activity in about 4 weeks. We have a final check up and xray in 6 weeks to make sure all the inside stuff is good and healed!

Thanks for the encouragment about the agoro stuff. It SUCKS!! lol...
