I think we are on our way to our new normal. Samdog slept through the night, though at one point I woke up and found he had slid off the dog bed again. I need to come up with a solution to that. I think he likes having the support on his back when he is layed out flat.
He joined me on a walkabout again today. Out to the chickens to collect eggs and then into the backyard where I fed the fish. He loves the grass and plunked himself down and waited for me to be done. But, on my to do was to mow that grass. So, I asked him to move up to the porch, where he sat in the shade and watched me mow the lawn.
Pre-amp, Samdog was one of those velcro dogs. Wherever I went, he followed. “Hey mom, don’t forget me”. It is nice to see a little bit of that coming back. He actually followed me into the bedroom today, but stopped on the last bathmat, near the door, to lay down and watch me from there. He is definitely better at picking the places to stop and understands the value of the now strategically scattered bathmats.
His bruising is much better, still some fluid in his belly, but in all – I see terrific improvement this morning.
Hooray for day 5.
