I just wanted to update everyone on Slotchy. She really does seem to be doing a lot better. She has no signs of pain and her limping is lessening. I don’t know if it’s the brace (which she hates!), the supplements or the combination of both. As long as she is feeling better, I’m happy!
She just needs to take it easy for awhile in her favorite spot. At one time this was my recliner! She likes it because it’s right by the window and she can hear her daddy coming home. Grandma is just her second choice. Splotchy and I have both had a rough week because the grandkids are away. I’m not sure which of us is missing them most.
This silly homemade toy is her favorite. An old sock stuffed with more old socks!
This was a favorite until mean old grandma took it away! Believe it or not, it was once a baseball.
She wasn’t to happy when I took it away for her own safety!
I wonder if anyone else knows the answer? When Splotchy first came home to us, she was never interested in any toys. We would give her one and she would glance at it and walk away. Now these chew toys have become quite important to her. She doesn’t want any of us to play with them and quickly take them to her bed for safe keeping. This sudden interest in toys just seems strange to me.
If only I could read her mind! I’m afraid she might have simply been a breeder before we found her. Maybe nobody really cared enough to love her and let her play with any toys. Amazing what goes through this mind. Whatever happened before, we are doing our best to make up for it. She so loved and spoiled now that I hope her past is just a very distant memory.
Wishing everyone a very special day.
Hope to see you soon!
