Well, Alex will be taking a long break from walking, running, and playing for about 2 months or longer. It depends on how well her front right paw heals. The vet advised me not to rush it, but rather let it heal with time and minimal activity. These 10 days, vet recommended for Alex to only get on her “paws” when she needs to eat/drink and do #1 and #2. Other than that, she needs to stay in bed. Poor my girl. After the 10 days are over, she can walk around the house and take a very short walk, and then back to bed to rest. So far so good since Alex seems to be enjoying staying in bed sleeping.
Walter, an Australian Shepherd or Aussie, is now my walking partner since Alex will not be able to accompany me for a while. He gets really excited every time he knows that we are going for a walk and I try to take different routes so he does not get bored going to the same place over and over again.
Look at that face:) Walter’s parents brought a bone for him to chew on, but the one he likes is the one he is holding in the picture. Why? Who knows. Also, he has a nice big comfortable bed, but during the day he loves to stay right under the dining room table, where picture was taken, or next to me wherever I am at that particular time.
