Progress and a New Friend!

Well, we are 8 days post-surgery and the native is getting restless.  She is obviously feeling a whole lot better because she’s taken to sporadic bursts of barking and scratching on the crate door.  We have been doing the heat regimen of 15 minutes of a hot compress on her leg two or three times a day.  6 more days until her staples come out!

Hot compress and time out of the crate!
No, friends, she’s not yawning…that’s her barking!  See my pillow next to her crate?

We got a nice surprise in the mail today–the toy Riley won over at Miss Barbara’s blog that the OP Pack passed along to her came…that was SUPER fast!  They must have known Riley is getting cabin fever!  It’s the cutest monkey toy you ever did see and she LOVES it!  She’s trying to rip it apart at the moment and is having tons of fun with it.

It even says “I Love You” on it, how sweet!

Plus they included some treat samples in the package and both dogs enjoyed those!

Playing with her new toy!
Riley’s incision still looks great and I can’t believe that she hardly ever tries to lick it.  I have to tell her to “leave it” maybe once or twice a day, but other than that, she leaves it alone.  She had diarrhea a couple of days ago but that seems to have cleared up now.  I think it was because she was drinking some rain water outside a few days ago and maybe that was doing it…who knows.

  1. Getting restless means she is feeling good and that is a good thing for her. Not so much for you. But you have done a great job with things so far. Hang in there, we sure hope this is one time that time flies.Good to know the monkey has landed and is a hit:)Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning
