I thought I would post here every day, but just taking care of Abby is a lot of work!!
She is recovering from her surgery like a trooper. When you look at her standing from the other side (where she doesn’t have a giant scar and half-shaved backside), she really looks the same. She is a little hopper now, but quite stable.
That being said, she reminds us daily that she is a 15 month old puppy. Despite several shopping trips and countless attempts, we can’t find an alternative to the cone that she will keep on. She is obsessed with her incision and even tries to lick it through the cone. 8 more days…
I also can’t seem to get her to sleep past 3 or 4am. I think she might need her pain meds, but if I kennel her again after giving them, she just whines–for hours. So, here we are in her favorite place–on the couch– spending some quality time together. We have reached a compromise that she won’t jump on or off the couch as long as we will put her up there and stay with her.
