Four Days Post-Op

Well, here we are, four days after surgery.  Riley is doing very well.  She is putting weight on her leg and has a surprisingly good attitude about being penned up in her crate.  She is so much happier in her new, larger crate!

 Even in her larger crate, she has a paw sticking out the side!
My good friend, Gail, got Riley a get-well-soon card!  How thoughtful!

It says: “Hang in there, Riley.  It won’t be long before you are back chasing balls and squirrels.”  πŸ™‚

Riley has to wear her prong collar out in the backyard on the leash now so I can have better control of her.  She tried to start running off last night after a rabbit–YIKES!  Luckily she was on her prong collar and couldn’t take off.  Then, that’s her not so high tech “sling” under her belly to keep her from slipping and falling and to provide her with extra support.
We want to send a big thank you out to two of our wonderful blogging pals!  The first is our friend Miss Barbara!  She was having a giveaway for a flappy monkey toy on her blog and we won!  But, we have to say thank you big time to our friends, The OP Pack: Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning!  They were the original winners of the toy and they said to pass it on to someone else because they had won a lot of things lately and it was passed on to Riley girl!  We are thrilled and I know she will be happy to get a new little friend to play with in her crate.
