Trinity has been making progress since her last surgery on Friday, June 1st. The repair of the left hind leg plate was her 5th surgery and hopefully final surgery. A testament to her strength and will to live, her little frail body keeps bouncing back. Her orthopedic vet Dr. Bugman assures me, “puppies are resilient” and if we stay the course she will recover from the fractures.
Trinity has been working on standing with her 3 legs (front one is in a splint healing following the second surgery on, one was not broken and the hind leg operated on May 23rd is functioning) and doing toe touches with the recently operated leg. Each day she makes progress in balancing herself, despite the splint covering her entire front leg. Her goal is to walk with assistance for 2 to 3 minutes, 3 times a day.
She is an excellent patient indoors, but when it comes to being outside in the grass, forget walking, it’s time for her to lay down on her back and wiggle ever so gently. JUST LIKE A NORMAL HEALTHY DOG. She puts a smile on everyone’s face when she does so, a sign to us that she is going to be alright when we come to the end of this journey.
She eats 4 meals a day, rice, organic turkey, sweet potato puree, goats milk and loves it.
Today she started to play with a couple of her chew toys, another sign that she is in better spirits.
We captured her sassiness outdoors today in a mock-up commercial for her favorite treats, “Bark Pops” Her tail starts to wag the second she sees the white bag as she already recognizes it as being reward time.
