A Funk

I've been in a funk.  Can you tell?  I had to stop blogging so I didn't bring you all down with my negativity.  Sorry about that.  I think I'm on the upswing.  And so is Coulee.

The day was so beautiful I decided to see if I could get Coulee's stitches out a day early so we could go out on a walk.  We could.  And we did.

Note: We did not play fetch.  I gave her the ball to carry so she wouldn't beat up Lacey. Worked like a charm.  ;)

All is right with the world again.

Check out her new Ruffwear Booties.  So far, so good.  They stayed on and she didn't seem to mind them.

They have vibram soles so I figured they would be better than the soft soled boots at helping with reducing trauma.

Her stitches are out but it will still be a few weeks until her pad is fully healed.  So that means a boot needs to go on every time she goes outside still but no more leash in the backyard. Yippee.  No running/fetch yet, but we can live with that.  She also has a yeast infection between her toes from being wrapped up for so long so she is on meds for that now for the next 2 weeks or so.  Her right foot still looks like crap so we'll be focusing more on that now that the cast is off her left.  It feels never ending but I think I can see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Still no word on the cause of the issue....
