  • Mood: Joy
Joy all around in my home.
After four months of Jass being unable to have fun {and me being morose and frowning for her sake};
after convincing that my chiropractor could do dogs, not just people;
after spending day after day massaging her spine and reading her stories; (Taste runs to Daniel Silva...surprising);
after wrecking my left knee by lifting her in and out of cars and vets and up and down my front steps;
after spending a night sleepless worrying about how i would know when to say "Bye" and
after agonising about where she would best like to be buried...

after all of that, Jass can now do the steps and once I get her front paws on the ground first her back legs just follow from memory, which means
WE CAN GO TO THE BEACH AGAIN!
She can only last about 15 minutes but when I do the come home whistle she thinks she has been playing for 2 hours and is glad to get back to her verandah.
So!
Thank you god of dogs!
ps While all of this has been going on, Quincy the whippet has been thinking how wonderful it was that he didn't have to get out of bed before sunrise and run for hours....today he wanted to bring his blanket when I informed him that the sun was nearly up and we were going to beat it, :-)

I have noted you:)
Yes..... but I have noticed that they seem to be farther apart than most other dogs her size...... I sometimes would think I am grasping.... but when she walks slow or trots this also seems the case..... other dogs back feet seem to closer together.

Are you on facebook or email? note me if you are...or instagram
When she stands do both feet be absolutely at the same angle?

Wow, how old ya figure Q actually is?
Soo happy to hear Jass is still squeezing as much as she can out of life...and that your enabling this actually worked in your favor! WOOT!
I think Eppa may need hip surgery. I have to investigate first. Wont jump into this. But if so... need to get my hands on the $$$.... eek it is pricey. But I will figure out something. Aside from that she is doing very well.... she is has become far more reliable off leash than I ever expected. This makes me happy...kuz when she is free she is truly happy you can see it in every trotting investigative unfettered step she takes.....:) Wish i could upload video here I would show you.... and let you see her back leg.... I would value your opinion there.:)

Jass is just a wonder dog. We are back to 3 days a week on the beach for short amounts of time. She still tries to dig  and every now and then she manages not to fall down! Quincy is older than I thought when I adopted him from death row so i am now giving in to his need to snuggle in all my clothes, towels, sheets etc.
I had to close up my studio as it was too far away and I didn't want Jass worrying about getting down the front steps...or even falling and breaking legs.
So...easels and art everywhere BUT am selling heaps more so , karma, hey?
Howz that yummy red friend of yourn?...(and you)?
