Rita Getting Into the Tripawd Groove

Rita really has adjusted well and fast…. I think it was mostly just adjusting to not having all that weight on her left side.   She is able to do everything she could before, I let her try what she wanted, I trusted she would know when she was ready….though I did the “mom gasping in fear”  thing many times watching her do some things.  She really did know when she was ready and able to do things, it’s impressive to see.  She is coming out of the getting sleepy so often.  She is doing so well and I smile every time I watch her in action.  We go for jogs not walks now and she looks soooo happy running, which she could not do with the fat leg.  My family even has said she looks happier now and has a twinkle in her eye.

I know she is 10 years old and that to some is “extremely senior”, which still offends me and her.  That may be really old for some dogs but 10 seems to be an age that varies greatly from dog to dog.  Rita still has all the life in her that she did when she was younger, just not a puppy stamina, that’s the only difference and an understandable one.  I work caring for dogs at a vet. office/ boarding kennel and I have seen 10 year old dogs that are extremely senior and others that have a lively young spirit in them still.

elevatedfeederThis is one of the two elevated feeder Rita’s daddy and I made for her.  It was easy and affordable.  And it’s personalized which, I enjoyed doing.  Just get 2 buckets, turn upside down cut a big enough hole out of the bottom to fit a bowl with a lip (which is obviously needed), put the bowl in and there it is.
