Visitors! and Frozen Liver Treats !

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Nothing like visitors to raise my spirits and do some tail wagging.   Thx so much for stopping by and giving me some love. And I’ll be dreaming about those homemade popsicle liver treats for days.   Thx for giving Mom the receipt cuz I’m sure going to be asking for more of those.

Video link of Dakota’s new walk

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Video of Dakota walking the hop on Friday (3 days after the double surgery).  She is doing great with the walking. But you can see she is still nervous cuz her tail is slightly tucked.  She does give some good wags of being real proud.

Getting a little love after some good walking

Monday, September 12th, 2011

After some good walking in the yard on Friday, Dakota gave a quick little hug. Dakota had kinda a blue day today.  She made it outside a number of times which we are proud of.  But she is refusing to eat today which has us a little concerned.  She will take her pills with peanut […]

Stop it, I can do it on my own!

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

Last night (Friday) Dakota declared that she does not need to get picked up to be carried inside or outside the house anymore.   She can do it on her own.  She made it pretty clear that she preferred to do it herself!   We were again amazed that she made it the 50 feet […]

Got up on her own to Pee! – Yah

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Dakota got up on her own again this afternoon after laying around looking depressed for most of the morning. So, we took her outside to feel the grass under her paws and sniff out those pesky squirrels.  She had to say hello to Gus and May (her neighbors) who were out.  Her dear co-parents (who […]

Amazing Love

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Wow! When we went to bed, Dakota was about 5 feet from us.  Moving the spare bed mattress to the living room was  just not close enough for her. All on her own and in the dark Dakota got herself standing upright.  We shined the flashlight to check on her and she had taken the […]

Getting settled at home

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Darren and I are surprised at how alert she is when she’s awake from those much needed naps. She seems to be in minimal pain, thx to some pain meds. She is going between getting some good sleep, watching our every move, trying to sneak a lick of her stitches here and there, to dazing […]
