Physical Therapy

In case you missed yesterday’s post, you have a chance to win your very own copy of “Awkward Family Pet Photos,” a hilarious book I reviewed on Tuesday.  Click here to enter!

Here is a short video we took of me doing Riley’s physical therapy with her!

Sorry the video is so dark.  As you can see, she’s pretty flexible right now (just as flexible as she was before surgery)…yay!!

Wanna Be a Winner?

So, after the Awkward Family Pet Photos post yesterday, the publishers have decided to give away a copy to one of our readers!  I know some other blogs were doing this too, so you can double or triple your chances to win one!

If you want to win a copy of the book (see yesterday’s review for more information), just leave a comment on this post telling us what kind of animal your very first pet was!  Mine was a goldfish…my parents really weren’t animal people when we were kids!  🙂

The contest will end at midnight EST on Friday, November 4th, so get your comment in by then!  The winner will be chosen at random (by, so everyone has an equal chance at winning!  It should be fun to see what everybody’s first pet was!  And if you have never had a pet, just say so (but I don’t think you’d be reading a dog blog if you weren’t a “pet person”).

Riley is still doing well.  Her physical therapy (flexing and extending her leg) is going great and she’s still super flexible in her joint.  I don’t really see a post-surgery difference in flexibility, so that’s super!

Riley snuggled up to her new Monkey Mark toy she won on Miss Barbara’s blog!

Look, “Lucifur” is back for a visit!!  I have to put Chloe in the dining room while I take Riley out to potty…so they don’t intermingle and play with each other.

Well, That Was Awkward…

We got this little gem of a book in the mail the other day and just had to share it with everyone!  It’s called “Awkward Family Pet Photos” and it hits store shelves today.  It is hysterical!!

Riley reading the back cover…what could be more awkward than a dog reading an Awkward Family Pet Photos book??

It seems to keep her interest!

I just love the picture on the lower left-hand corner.  Do those people not have smooshed faces like their dog??

I don’t know whether to tell you that the pictures or the captions were funnier!  There were some hilarious stories from Veterinarians and stories “behind the awkwardness” from the people that were in the pictures.  Most of the time, it was children who wrote in about how their parents made them pose with their pet pig or something like that.  Too funny!  The book is available today in bookstores and on and I highly recommend it as a Christmas present for any pet lovers out there…it is hysterical!  Check out the AFPP Book website for more information.
And…to make this post a little more awkward…here is a picture of Riley’s leg now that her staples are out!  The vet said her incision looks really good and she was acting her same old crazy self today at the vet’s office…sigh.  She saw her BFF, Brooke, and didn’t feel the need to pee for her today!!
