It has been over two weeks since I hurt my knee and I have been resting like a real professional! Everyday it’s rest, rest, rest. And after that? Rest!
It has not been all boring. Mom has been teaching me some new things. I already knew how “touch” hands with my nose, but now I am learning how to “touch” things that mom is holding. And I am learning to “tap” things with my paws.
Mom is also teaching me to balance things on top of my head and to hold things in my mouth. I already learned “pick it up,” but I like to just pick things up and then throw them…hehehe 🙂 Now I am learning how to hold onto something until mom tells me it’s okay to let go. Soon mom will take some videos of what I am learning so I can show you!
Plus mom has been bringing my soft crate, aka “the tent”, outside every so often so I can enjoy the breeze and the smells and watch the world go by. I really love that.
Mom is waiting for an appointment the the veterinarian that does some special things like the cold laser and physical therapies. Hopefully I will get to see her this week and we will make a plan for me getting better. Until then mom and dad are getting some strong muscles from carrying me up and down the stairs and on and off the furnitures 😉
The other good thing is that I have not had any pain medicines for more than a week and I have not been limping at all. Mom is not really sure if this means my knee is not hurting though, since I can kind of be a tough guy about stuff that hurts…
And one more good thing is that I am being a very well behaved patient. Mom thought I might be wild because I am used to lots of exercise and playing, but I have been very calm and cooperative. Okay…maybe I get a little zoomie when she takes me out for nighttime potty breaks, but just the tiniest bit, I promise!
I hope you all had a good weekend! Reading about all your cool adventures gives me a really great rest from the resting 😀
