Surprise! Are you??? Yes, its me, Scarlet doing a guest bloggie today. The Secretary told me that "I have tugged a few heartstrings with my story and that some online buddies want an update". Well, I am happy to report that I am doing much better after the Animal Doctor opened up my poorly tummy about a million seconds ago. I eat a lot ( like I did before I got my ouchie) but its alright because I make the Animal Doctor really happy with the pile of
poopies presents I give him daily.
My wound is not all healed, the Secretary cleans it and applies ointment morning and evening. Right now I stay in their house down Mimosa Street ( they bring me to the Clinic when my real Mommi visits) where I saw three other dogs and one grumpy cat. One of the dogs, Trudis, always tries to play with me. I want to, so I try to get up and use my front legs to move my body around. Its like I'm swimming but on solid floor. I can do that now because my ouchie is almost gone. The Animal Doctor has been giving me some tablets and maybe those are good.
Several days ago, the Secretary and the new Assistant have been taking turns "walking" me. They hold me around my chest ( sometimes using a towel too) and I paddle with my front legs. Oh, its fun to chase Trudis and that boy dog Moy-Moy ( Shhh, one of these days I am going to show him who's boss). Here's a video of me "walking".
The Secretary's Note: We thank all our online buddies who have been so very thoughtful of Scarlet. Her owner cannot afford anymore diagnostic tests ( and neither can we), so the Animal Doctor decided to symptomatically treat Scarlet for Rickets and had already put her on Vitamin D supplementation. We noticed that she is not yelping in pain anymore whenever her hind legs are touched. When "walking" her, I also noticed that she is able to rest her left hind leg on the floor to absorb some of her weight. She is definitely improving and we are keeping our fingers crossed! :)
P.S. I've been to the hardware store twice rummaging through an assortment of PVC pipes...err, whatever you call it. Hopefully this weekend, I would be able to figure out a way to make Scarlet's homemade wheelies.
