Darby's doing very well. She seemed to have pepper up her butt today. On our walk she kept wanting to trot and I had to pull her back and ask her to slow down. I'm thrilled and thank God that she's doing so well.
I can't wait to be able to just let her trot during our walks and to walk a bit faster. I'm hoping that when I call the vet at the end of the month he'll give me the ok to let her swim a bit too.
I had Shanny out at Betty's swimming on Sunday. It was about 67 degrees out and all I could think about was how much the swimming would help her.
When I squeeze her thigh muscles they still seem a bit soft to me. I don't think they will harden up much until she's able to do more than walk. I certainly don't want to push her and end up harming her, but I know I'm bored with the walking I can only imagine how bored Darby is.
Soon, Darby, soon.
