Sorry for the delay in posting yesterday so I’ll just combine the two days. To be honest, not a whole lot to report! I think that’s a good thing!
Snoop is amazing…as are all tripawds! His ability to adapt and heal is beyond our expectations. For anyone worried, myself included, all the talk is true. It isn’t easy to see at times, but we as humans allow ourselves to go places dogs just don’t go. Snoop woke up and was like…well, ok I guess I’ll just figure this out. By day three he was getting around on his own. Stumbling? Yes…falling? Yes…was it hard to see? Yes.
It’s like a parent watching their child take their first steps and trying to protect them from harm, yet knowing they have to fall to figure it out.
We’ve had one sleepless night…so far. He wasn’t crying in pain or even whimpering. Just anxious and restless. He was unable to get comfortable no matter what we did. Even with the cone off, he just couldn’t lay down. I was with him until 4 am and he finally conked out. I have called the dr to see about switching night meds for him and selfishly for me. But that’s ok because we also need to sleep.
Now it’s time for bed…and onto day…5? Is that all???
