Riley says to tell all her “furiends” that crates are boring and to bust out of one as soon as you get an opportunity (her opportunity just won’t present itself for another 5 weeks)!! I took some of her kibble, wet it, stuffed it inside a green Kong-type squirrel dude toy, and froze it, then gave it to her to keep her busy…the crazy dog decided she wanted to hide it in her crate instead…
Trying to hide it in her dog bed… We’re beginning our 3rd week of crate rest. She will hopefully get sprung from the crate on December 14th, after her follow-up appointment at the surgeon’s office.
She is doing so very well. A little too well…she tried to take off after a bird this afternoon outside but she was on her leash, so she just got to the end of her 6 foot leash and then had to stop. Bummer! 🙂 Her leg is looking great! I’ve posted a fairly grainy picture of her incision, so just use your imagination. Her PT is going well. She usually lasts the whole 10 minutes of therapy, unless of course, she’s being all riled up and wanting to roach around on the carpet during therapy…sigh.
You can see a little bit where her incision was and her fur is growing back in now!
Oh, and today, I renewed Riley’s Therapy Dogs International registration so she can make visits in 2012!
