One year ampuversary

with 3 comments

It is hard for me to believe that it has been a year.  Tai of course just keeps on doing her thing.  She seems more happy to just ride in the car (especially if we go to a drive thru) than to get out at the park nowadays, but we try.  Of course I worry about everything – is she not sleeping enough, too much, why is she shaking her head? but she is not impressed with my worrying.  We had a good park trip though I ended up carrying her a bit because I forgot that the trail had a decent hill; so I’m getting good exercise too.

Here she is hot on the trail of an interesting smell –

I am desperately trying to get a pic for the calendar and she refuses to look at the camera.

Thanks so much to TriPawds for keeping me sane throughout our journey 🙂

10 months – wow!

with one comment

Hi everyone – Tai again.  So mom says that this week I had a 10 month ampuversary, whatever that is?  She was kind of excited.  She also says I have a birthday coming up, number 15 and that age is just a number.  I did hear about a Puppacino on my birthday, which is great, but I should get one every day, don’t you think?  I do.

So I am OK.  I don’t like when Mom is out of the house still but I get a special treat when she comes home.  I do go to work, which I like sometimes, because everyone talks to me.  Really though we should just stay home together all the time or go for rides in the car, to the park or my aunt’s house.  Work makes me tired.  See me here?

Mom says I’m being a brat, I just want things the way I want them.  I really don’t see a problem with that.

We did go to the park today.  I was very excited and then got very tired.  It was hot too.

It’s actually time for bed and I keep looking at Mom but she is not making eye contact.  When will she learn?  I will just have to live with her.

Summer’s here and we’re not loving it :)

with 3 comments

Neither one of us likes the heat so trips to the park are at a minimum.  We did get a great breezy day –

One thing I’ve noticed is Tai’s complete behavioral change WRT to fireworks and thunder.  She used to be terrified of both and would sit next to me, shaking uncontrollably and wouldn’t stop unless she was wedged between me and the chair.  Since her surgery (and this is was her first 4th of July post-surgery, though we’ve had a few thunderstorms) she is totally unconcerned.  She may lift her head and listen, but that’s it.  I’m happy about this for her but wonder if anyone else had something similar happen?

We had a great morning at the farmer’s market, and even though she did a huge poop BEFORE going, she did another one while walking around!  What manners 😀  luckily I was prepared.

She is snoozing now with her head hanging off her bed, which is a position she likes though she has rolled off of the bed a couple of times.  We’re fully carpeted but she always looks at me like it is my fault, LOL. If I see her tilting, I try to gently wake and move her and that’s my fault as well.  This is the bed she has rolled off of.

Happy Saturday all!

Another month in!

Whatever that means, but it is what Mom says.  Tai here.

So did I tell you that I get to go to work 3 days a week now??  I am training Mom right!  I like it, everyone pets me and talks to me and tells me how good I am.  I sometimes try to climb stairs but can only do one, sometimes…then I get stuck, so Mom carries me.  Oh well, I can’t do everything, can I? I mean, I do still have to do that PT thing –

They say I am stronger and I say of course!  I sure fool Mom at home when we try to exercise, don’t tell her.  I get a little cranky with her.

I insisted we go to the park.  Really, do I have to tell Mom everything??  Anyway, I was very excited and feeling pretty good but then I got a little tired.

Tracey back, is Tai posting again 🙂 We have some ups and downs but I was pretty happy when she asked to go to the park, which she hasn’t done in a while.  Her asking is to stand up and give me the eye and generally act happy and look at me and then out the window.  So off we went!  I let her get a little overexcited and she was moving very fast; I ended up having to carry her back to the car.  Or maybe it’s all part of her master plan!

Seven months!

with 2 comments

It’s been seven months since Tai’s amp!  Though she has slowed down quite a bit, I’m impressed every day with her happy attitude, unless we’re doing her exercises 🙂   Though she can’t take the walks she once did, she still loves riding in the car. Here she is at the park last week!

She tires quickly, but ten minutes outside plus riding in the car makes for a happy girl, especially with a treat and nap after the excursion.
