Staying Close To Home
Here's a post I made last year about this great place for dog's to swim.
Last time (yeah, she blew out her other knee in the same park) there wasn't a soul, and we had walk 1.5 miles to the car. Thirty minutes out to spot where she got hurt; 2 hours back.
She is home in a confined pen staying still and taking pain pills. She only stands up when she needs outside. Tuesday we head to the vetinary surgeons where they will xray her, hold her overnight and operate Wednesday morning. She'll be home on Thursday and my fun will begin. A "harness" that I hold and help her walk, pain meds, and a couple more trips to Concord for check ups with the vets.
Glad we didn't make any summer vacation plans.. our vacation money is going into her knee. OTOH, 6 weeks spent mostly at home nursing a dog... my garden will be well-cared for, my house will be clean, and I might even get some fiber work done.
