Mack














Hi y'all, we are four days into, my 21 days of "can we walk again." Mommy said she would give the rehabilitation therapy three weeks, 21 days. So far, Mommy has walked me with publix's bags, and she makes me stand by the door for twenty minutes at a time to practice weight bearing. Help, I mean, I am an older doggie. I am not a horse, I am a dog. Sure, horses who are sick, rest in slings, but, I am Lord Duncan of McDuff, a proud older Eskie. Why must I stand, when resting is easier? I really love Mommy, and I want to walk for her;but, it is hard.

Also, Sally Ann knows I am sick. She hid under the bed Saturday night, and Mommy had to pull her out. Sally Ann is worried in a way only doggies can be. So far, Mommy has a lead on her in the house. Just in case, she pulls another "under the bed." She loves sleeping with Mommy, so I know she was worried for me.

  4. Hey Mack,
    How are you today? We sure hope your standing exercise helps you to walk again. Sally Ann is a very smart sister. Most dogs can tell when another is sick. I Butchy knew that Snickers was sick too. Mama just hates that us doggies get old & sickly. I'm almost 10 now and she worries that I'll get sick. We're sending all of our wirey zen & praying for you to get well soon. Katie is learning how to send her vibes, heheheh!
    Wirey Hugs, Purrz & Licks,
    Butchy, Katie, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby & Hootie
