She is walking much better, still requiring to be hand fed and is feeling blue. We believe she injured her back on New Year's Eve trying to escape from the horrible fireworks that lasted over 7 hours. We had her inside, a/c on, television on but it wasn't enough, she tried her best to dig a hole in the bathroom, hid in the closet and burrowed herself between Ron and I in the bed. Needless to say, I hate fireworks!! She jumped off the bed and I believe that's when she wrenched her back. On our brief walk on New Years Day I noticed she had a "crooked" back. She was given pain meds for 2 days and that has seemed to "straighten" her out. She is back to gentle walking and is eager to go on her walks again!! YAY for Gracie.
We have been trying to take her on more outings; (church, post office, bank and the recycling center) she seems fine when we are out and about but her disposition changes when we are here at home. I often find her outside sniffing the air. Wonder if she is sniffing for Schatzie....breaks my heart. Guess it's just going to take time for all of us.
Monday after work we took a drive and enjoyed a nice walk to the beach.
and on we go....
