Day 3 --- Schatzie's Recovery

Recovery seems to be going well.  Our girl is back to her goofy self, minus the running around like a crazy dog. We have managed to keep her somewhat calm--well as calm as a German Shepherd Dog can be. 
Late yesterday she pooped!! I now know how all you moms out there feel after your child has had surgery or been ill. The poop says it all, she is on the road to recovery!! We also began flexion and extension therapy followed by ice treatment this morning.  She spent some time out on the lanai for some vitamin D and a change of scenery.

Here's Schatzie's take on the situation:

Hi, thanks for all your prayers and good thoughts. I'm doing well.

My sister Gracie is a great nurse, never far from my side.

It's nice to be outside in the warm fresh air.

So far mom is proud, I haven't even tried to mess with my incision.

Paws crossed,
I'll be up and on all 4 paws before you know it, at least that's what mom hopes.


  1. you look wonderful as does your nurse, you have the perfect place to absorb that vit d... get well soon

  2. Look how great you look. Keeping my paws crossed for you sweet friend. Rest up and before you know it you will be zoom zoom zooming around.

  3. You are looking fabulous, Schatzie! Have you been following the Thundering Herd? Two of their members are recovering from ACL surgery. They don't have a warm porch like yours for their recovery. That looks sweet!

  4. Glad to hear Schatzie is on the mend! I can't think of a better place in the world to convalesce!

  5. Calling in to send lots of love.
    x x x

  6. Glad to hear she is recovering and everything went well. Being able to lay in the warm sun should help a lot, not to mention that fancy bed she's got.

  7. Whoo hoo glad to hear it!! I love how quickly they rally. Keep up the good work and I'm here if you have any questions.

  8. you look beautiful! I bet your sister is a wonderful nurse. :)

  9. Glad things are going well, but I bet when she starts feeling better, she will be hard to keep quiet!


Thanks for dropping by...I would love to hear what you think of our adventures, so please feel free to add a comment.
