Around 1pm, I took Alex and her canine companions out for a short walk around the neighborhood. When we were a couple of minutes away from home, it started to rain so we had to hurry up since I did not want them to get wet. After I dried them, they had a nice snack and went to bed.
Even Bella, who has boundless energy, was tired after our walk so she decided to follow suit and take a well deserved nap. What a great way to start this weekend.

Tomorrow, Friday, will be two months since Alex, per her vet’s advice, was put on limited walks and a lot of bedrest. I was hoping that she’d be ready to go for our nice long walks, but a couple of days ago she started to limp again. The limping lasted a couple of hours and after that it went away. I called the vet and I was told to take her back for an appt. next week.
I did a bit of research on pet hydrotherapy and I’ll be talking about it with Alex’s vet next week to see if this would be something that she can try to build muscle around the affected area.
Alex will be 11 years old on May 5th and I am planning to pamper my girl that day, but I also know that she has different needs that a young dog so she’ll stay with short walks until I talk to the vet next week. If you have tried hydrotherapy with your dog(s), I’d love to get your input.
