I'll start with an update on Jimmy. First let me say thank you for the well wishes you all sent. It means a lot! As I mentioned in yesterday's post, as soon as I made the appointment Jimmy started acting brighter. Of course! He gets quite scared going in to the vet's office so he had his adrenaline pumping. The vet gave him a thorough exam, poking/prodding, moving things around looking for a pain response. Nothing. The usual neurological reflex tests to the hind legs/feet all came back as they should. He felt Jimmy's gait in the rear looked a bit stilted. His recommendation was to take a conservative approach and just go with restricted activity and rest for the next 10 days or so. No medications or x-rays. Jimmy did get a cold laser treatment while he was there and we will do a couple more over the course of the next few days. So basically, wait and see. This morning he is quite perky and seems pretty much normal. Now the trick will be to keep him calm on less exercise! He's enjoying a marrow bone as I write this :-)
And now for the post I had planned for yesterday..........
OK, you're all intelligent people....What in the heck is going on with my grass???
Darn those male dogs!
Have a great weekend, Everyone!
