A Good Day!

January 22, 2010

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!It’s only been 3 days since the surgery… Hard to believe actually when you look at Nikki and see just how far she’s come since Tuesday night. I took this photo after coming home from work today. As I was putting my stuff in the office […]

Post-Surgery, Day 2

January 21, 2010

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Wow. As I write this, I can barely keep my eyes open. Last night definitely qualifies as being in the top 10 of worst nights ever. Starting from about 9:30pm, Nikki just could not stop whimpering and whining. I tried everything I could think of; I […]

Post-Surgery Day 1

January 20, 2010

This is going to be a short update as I need to get back in and relieve Mary. She’s been sitting with Nikki all day while I’ve been at work, and needs a break. Nikki seems to be doing as expected. When I came home from work she perked up and actually kissed my face […]

The Morning After….

January 20, 2010

After we got Nikki settled in last night and my bed made, Mary headed upstairs with Sasha and Buddy, and I laid down next to Nikki to read. Nikki was pretty much passed out from the pain meds, but was starting to stir somewhat. When I turned out the light, Nikki started to whine a […]

Nikki is Officially a Tripawd!

January 19, 2010

Wow! We got the call that we could pick Nikki up around 7:15pm.. We had a pretty intense, but quick snowstorm here this afternoon and the roads were icy, so we had to take it very easy.. I was having a difficult time driving just because all I could think about was getting Nikki home…. […]

Halfway Through Surgery Day!

January 19, 2010

Today is the day! It started with me getting up early and taking the dogs out.. They of course didn’t get treats this morning because Nikki wasn’t allowed food, and of course it wouldn’t be right to treat the others.. They didn’t seem to mind too much, I think  they knew something was up. I […]

T minus one…….

January 18, 2010

Wow, what an insane day! I had to be in the office early, so I was up and downstairs by 0530. Nikki and the others of course followed me down, went outside and did their business, then came inside for treats.. As is the custom, after the treats, Nikki laid by my chair in the […]

T-Minus 2 Days

January 17, 2010

Well, today was another lazy day of household chores and other misc stuff.. The dogs and I spent some time in the back yard filling the bird feeders and horsing around as usual. Nikki seemed to be favoring her leg a bit more today, probably because she was so active yesterday. (She actually chased the […]

T-Minus 3 days and counting!

January 16, 2010

Today is Saturday, a day that I don’t have to get up early and go to work, and a day where we generally get the collective errands that need to be done taken care of. As far as Nikki is concerned, this is just another day. She was happy as we trudged down the stairs […]

The importance of a health maintenance plan

January 15, 2010

I certainly don’t want this post to be perceived as an advertisement, but one thing that has been on my mind as we start this journey is that I am very thankful for the care that Nikki has received up to this point. When Nikki was a puppy we enrolled her in a “puppy plan” […]
