Happy Boy

The last week or so has been nice and quiet, which is a welcome change! Mosby has been in his daycare routine, has had a great appetite, and is just generally enjoying life. He has been having strength problems with his remaining hind leg, but at this point I’m willing to chalk it up to the fact that he got behind the curve in terms of fitness when he was sick, and once he started getting better we still treated him with kid gloves. So I’m hopeful that he’ll start getting stronger now. He is happy and does not seem to be in any discomfort. His med routine seems to be going well. He is on twice the gabipentin as before, plus the muscle relaxers and his normal meloxicam. His back seems much more comfortable than it was on the tramadol.

We went out to the barn today and let him go off leash and he loved it so much. He did a good part of his barn “routine,” making certain rounds, visiting people, etc. He’s tuckered out now, but happy, and tore into dinner. Yeah, about dinner. He still prefers that we spoon feed him. He has a great appetite, but if we present him with a bowl of food he just looks up at us like “what?” Ugh. And of course we indulge him.

I didn’t get any pics at the barn, but here he is on the front porch today, master of all he surveys!
