A New Addition!3

So much has happened since our last post.  Abby’s appetite has returned and she’s full of energy once again. I can tell that she’s relieved to have the pain of her affected leg gone.  One more day and she gets her stitches out!  Abby’s been out and about, running around town getting donations for our fundraiser, going out to lunch and even a spectator for a couple of softball games….loving EVERY minute of if.

I knew that at some point I was going to get another dog. Before this diagnosis I thought I’d wait a few more years…probably when Abby was 8 or so, but our timetable has unexpectedly been moved forward so we have been hunting for a little sister.  I’m happy to announce that this morning Abby and I brought home a rescued chocolate lab which we named Kaya.  She’s two years old and reminds me of what Abby was like at 2…full of energy but wants to please you and just needs a little consistent training to become a lovable, obedient companion.

I would LOVE to post pictures of Abby, who looks so much better now and Kaya but everytime I try to upload a picture when it says “crunching” I get an error at the top of the window saying HTTP Error and it never uploads the picture.  I”m not a computer person so I have no clue what’s going on.  I WILL get someone too look at it and hopefully next post we’ll have plenty of pictures to share.

Abby amazes me every day with her positive attitude.  You’d never know she was sick and half the time you wouldn’t know she had three legs if you weren’t looking at her left side!  For anyone who’s getting ready to go through this or is in the first few days I can say (as everyone told me) its rough for a bit to see your little one in pain but they bounce back and are better than ever. Abby has always loved attention (almost as much as food, which for a lab is a BIG deal).  Now that she’s a Tripawd she gets more attention than ever and eats it up!  She’s always been such a happy girl and this surgery and diagnosis hasn’t changed that a bit.

If anyone has any idea why I can’t upload my pics please let me know!

    Wow! A new baby sister, how very exciting! Nothing better than a 2 year old Lab.

    I’m so happy everyone is doing well! I talked to my dad and he hasn’t got a clue on how to help with your pictures.

    Congrats! Shelby, the P.P.

    Happy times at your house with a new sister! Make sure you put her in her place and show her who is Queen Tripawd. It is good she knows the rules from the beginning!

    Good luck on the fund raising, but it sounds like you know what you are doing Abby!
