Home again!

with 2 comments

Tai came home on Saturday – hooray!  She is somewhat annoyed that I can’t walk as fast as she can, though I’m moving around with only one crutch now.  I think she gained a little weight on her vacation at my sister’s.  She is also somewhat cranky about her at home PT.  I am working on that by trying to make it at least sound like fun and encouraging her with a low-cal treat.  I noticed that her remaining back leg is showing weakness – as always, she is happy to walk but will occasionally drop onto her butt and look at me.

She wants to play chase the toy still, so we do that.  Since my doc said no stairs (the bedroom is upstairs) we are sleeping in the living room and she has a smaller, confined space to play.  I think this works out for her – she also has two beds in here.  She will chase the toy and take it to one of her beds and then expects me to come to her to throw it again.  This is how she was before the surgery, she just gets more tired now.

Speaking of – 60 days post surgery now!  Yay for Tai!

  2. haha cute video! Yes I too was amazed at how fast Kylie could go as a new Tripawd! But it made more sense once people on this site explained that its the momentum of their tripawd hop that allows them to walk with ease. When Kylie walks slow she almost looks like she’s limping, its much more work for her. But let her walk at her own pace or off leash & well, I pretty much have to jog to keep up with her lol Its so nice to see them pain-free and finding their new ‘normal’
    Happy 2 month ampuversary Tai! xox
