Another Amazing Tripawds Blog

Time for an update

with 4 comments

Back to physical therapy yesterday!  After Tai’s issues with rear leg weakness and thankfully the subsequent x-rays coming clean, we went to Wizard of Paws for a review with Deb Gross of Tai’s situation.  So I am feeling a bit more optimistic with exercise suggestions and I will probably look further into a medical option to help with her separation anxiety when I’m not home.  Most importantly, I will need to adjust my expectations of her capabilities considering her age and arthritis.

First there was a laser treatment to  help with soreness; Tai stayed still for most of it.  Looking sharp!

Then some strength exercises with tips and advice for at home work.

Naturally she took a much better picture for Deb than she ever does for me 🙂 The above pic with her ears up is on the WofP Facebook page.

Very tired on the ride home!

Thanks to everyone for your advice and for listening!

What a time I’ve had!

with 6 comments

Hi everyone!  Tai again.  We’ve been busy, which is OK but only sometimes.

So Mom says she had her knee fixed.  We had to get up very early one day and I had to take my walk in the DARK and how can I be expected to poop and pee when it is DARK outside?  I did not like that, and then Mom was out of the house for a bit but Lisa came over which was nice.

Downstairs this…thing got flat, I decided it was mine! Then it went away.  Mom says we have to sleep upstairs again!  I am having trouble doing the stairs at home because it has been a while.  I can go up the stairs at work though.

Then this morning we went in the car.  I was happy at first but then I looked out the window and it didn’t look right.  I got very suspicious. OK, I got worried and was shaking a LOT.  We were going to see Dr. D, who tries to be nice but I was very scared.

Mom talks about how I get tired and asked Dr. D for an x-ray, which I didn’t like.  They told Mom that I was a lot to handle but I am not even 20lbs so I don’t know??  All I know is that Mom was VERY HAPPY after the x-ray because Dr D showed her something and said that there are no spots in my lungs.   Of course not, I just get a little tired because I am older and work a little harder.  Mom was worried but she is happy now 😀

Then we went to work.  Did I mention that I can go up the stairs at work (much faster than Mom). I was pretty tired, it is a lot of work to be scared.

After working all day, I’m still up for playing!!  After supper, of course.

Mom had her knee surgery – yay!  This means she will be home A LOT since she has time off work!  My auntie offered to have me come over and stay with them but since the doc told Mom to keep walking, she says I stay home too.  I mean, I like going to my aunt’s, but home is always better.

I like going to work too, but like Mom will enjoy some time off.  I mean, here is Briskly AGAIN wanting to play.  Work is for sleeping, I say.

Sharing a bed

with 2 comments

Do not like.  Do not.  I have been working here for a while and Briskly NEVER gets on my bed.  OK, well, it is Briskly’s bed, except for when I am here and then it is MINE.  All MINE.  She can have it back when I go home, plus she has another bed OR the chair to lie on.  Why is Mom laughing?  Great, now she is taking pictures.

I’ll show her.  I’ll go to sleep and Briskly can have the corner.  Ha!

Five months ago!

with 4 comments

Hard to believe that Tai’s amp was five months ago.   As we get more sunny days, I’ve noticed her staring out of the picture window in the living room more often.  This isn’t the easiest since she is low to the ground so I think it’s time to have my co-worker make something that she can walk up and down on to sit and look out the window.   When I would be at work, there was an ottoman that she would jump on to look outside – she hasn’t shown any interest in jumping on things since her surgery though, and I just fine with that!  OK, she thinks she can jump in the car (she used to), but that is much too high up so no way, LOL.   It is kind of interesting that she doesn’t attempt to jump on the air mattress in the living room (the couch is currently blocked off)  – we still sleep down here while I wait to hear about knee surgery.

She had PT this week and though Tai wasn’t impressed, the tech was; she said she noticed that Tai is stronger so YAY!  She did 8 minutes on the water treadmill and then her balancing exercises.  They wanted her to walk across a space from one ball to the next and being herself, she jumped the space instead.

Still not cooperating with pictures and a little damp from the treadmill 🙂
