What a life darn dog Chloe has now that her back has healed from surgery! Most of the time she’s high energy, but the cooler weather has made her snuggle more in search of warmth. Continue reading

2015_Day 298: A wellness update
If darn dog Chloe had her way, she’d be back to her old ways, sleeping on daughter’s bed, jumping up on the couch and running around the back yard, barking at the neighbor dogs out for their daily walks. Three and a half weeks after having surgery to alleviate a bulging disc in her spine, you’d be hard-pressed to notice anything wrong with her if it wasn’t for the strip of shaved hair on her back.

2015_Day 288: Look Ma, no staples!

It did when something similar happened a year ago. And everything seemed to be going fine. Several days after taking the steroids, she seemed a lot better. She was moving better, she was eating and drinking. She even jumped up on the bed one night when we weren’t watching. Then the weekend hit. Continue reading
2015_Day 269: Darn dog Chloe’s darn back problems
What a difference a week makes. Last Sunday, daughter and I were in emergency pet care with Chloe, our beagle/Australian cattle mix dog who was having severe back problems. So severe that her whole body shook and she winced every time she tried to sit or lie down. Continue reading
