Oh, bless her heart and yours for being such good nurses. My dogs, Maggie and Jack are sending healing licks. xo
Hello Jane:Gosh, this all does sound to be a very demanding routine for both you and Nika. But, as you say,no boundaries given for the loving and we are sure that you will give and she will receive it in spades!
I got so wrapped up in Nika that I forgot to say....Congrats Jane, you made it through the dreaded first week...YAY!!!!
Oh no! Hope she gets well soon!!
Worst fears realised for you.... when the small dog did her ACL in, I was so relieved to learn that she would manage fine on three legs until things improved, rather than have to go through surgery and all that you are having to bear now. And dogs are so heartbreakingly willing to endure, aren't they? Big hugs to all. x
Sherri B., she's a good patient unless left alone with cone on head. Then she gets into all sorts of trouble.Hattat's, I feel i need to take a leave of absence from work just to take care of her1Sherri B., Thank you xoJane, Thank you, she's such a good girl, only unhappy when left alone. And who can blame her.rachel, It's all kind of awful now, but we hope to get into a routine soon and then all will simmer down. She suffers through anything except that cone on head. HATES it.
My bestie just went through this with her dog. She had a "suitcase" sort of contraption to help Annabelle with the weight. All are much better now. xoxo
Oh, my, I feel so bad for her. And you. I know how tough it is to manage this kind of situation. If they only understood what they're supposed to do, it would make it so much easier.
oh i rememeber the days of nursing pets and kids. good luck and i hope she is back to herself soon.xo
Oh, the poor baby.....I feel like reaching into my screen to give her a big kiss.I hope she does well in the next few days....bless her heart.
Kisses on your lovely leg Nikka and on your sweet Labby Face!
That is daunting. My golden (now deceased)had ACL surgery and I was dreading the recovery period, but It went a lot more smoothly than expected. She seemed to know she had to stay quiet. Hope it's the same for you. They do hate the cone--how long does it have to stay on?
Oh poor sweetie pie! I hope she`s back to health real soon!Sxo
Poor Nika. I hope it will help!Lieve groet, Madelief x
Sweet Nika. So glad she's made it this far ok, but what a regimen! It will be difficult for all - much time and much patience needed, all heaped with love. Sending good thought to the girl! also, virtual treats. xoxo
Hugs all round. What an ordeal.That you can do all this and not have smoked for a week is a total truimph too.Best wishes for Nika. xx
Oh, poor doggy!!!! That back leg pillow is very clever...
2 months?! That will be hard, but the unlimited loving will surely help you all. Best wishes to Nika from Jack, Sadie and Louise. And firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh, poor baby! She'll adapt quickly though, they always do. She's lucky to be sooooo loved.
Poor you! What a demanding schedule you have for Nika's sake. And poor doggie too, of course. Best wishes to both of you!
Oh, Jane. I haven't been by in a week, and look at all the things that have happened. I'm thrilled at your non-smoker status! Sweet Nika looks very comfortable, and I'm sure she will recover quite nicely in your care.I understand her hating the 'cone of shame'. As long as she's leaving her surgery site alone, it's fine to leave it off. If she starts licking, you'll have to get creative. I used to have to do this with Emma, because she chewed on every lump, cut, and stitch she ever had. At one point, when she degloved a back leg, I resorted to using a tube sock on her leg held up with vet wrap around her waist to keep her from chewing the stitches. The motto is: ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
Oh bless her! so glad she came through with flying colours...but...you do know she will be absolutely impossible at the end of this and will continue to demand the spoiling!!!!!! xxx
Poor baby! She's lucky to have you.
Aaah poor Nika - sending lots of love after her surgery... She is in the best of hands with you both. And lots of support to you Jane with the quitting smoking - you are doing well I see and to GG lots of good luck for her new job...X
Oh, so fragile...
