Dog is doing better!

My good ol girl lab is walking today and navigating obstacles. She looks like she is walking on stilts with straight legs, but she’s walking all around and navigating obstacles and not falling over.

The biggest difficulty is getting her to take anti nausea meds. She fights me so hard that I think she gets dizzier and now she kind of hates me. She loves to see my husband but she smashes her face against the wall when she sees me.

She used to be an easy pill taker because she LOVES food and gobbles it down never noticing the pill. But now that her tummy hurts she’s not interested in eating. The pill is an anti nausea pill, but she doesn’t understand that. I’m just mean mom .

I am letting her roam a bit outside alone with no other animals so they can’t topple her since she’s navigating obstacles. I’m hoping not being stuck inside all hours except to potty will raise her spirits. She loves outside.

My big boy dog wants so bad to go with her. They are BFFs. He just checked on her these last couple days with his sad eyes and his ears down, but today he got all excited to see her walk outside by herself and started barking and whining with his happy tail to go too, but he’s too wrestle- y and jumpy for me to allow it.

I think when she goes over the rainbow bridge my big boy will be devastated. He’s 8 years her junior and I don’t know what he will do without her. When i used to foster dogs , my labby girl was always the one to help the big fosters and they developed a strong bond when he was a scared 6mo old who was abandoned.
