Just a few days on her medications and Molly is almost completely back to her old self again. Sooooo very nice to see her spunk, her joy of life/play again. (just remembered I have to call for the results of that heartworm test darn it, I forgot) If I've been gone, she greets me at the door again. She greeted Nichole and Aubrey when they arrived on Sunday. She's back to playing with her ball with vigor, but I still have to make sure she doesn't over do it too much.......been a hot week and I don't want her sore. No more ichies anywhere........not her ears, not her coat, not her feet. The cough is still there and she's coughing stuff up, clear mucous. (I'm to watch in case it is blood tinged) She's not quite gotten into playing with her other toys again yet, but she's back to chewing her bone and snitching puppy food whenever the chance presents itself. LOL Seen a huge difference in how she is with Maggie in just over the past 24 or so hours. She went from avoiding her / wanting nothing at all to do with her........to watching out for her on walks and waiting on her when she needed to sit and rest a bit, to letting her approach to sniff, to letting her attempt to play a bit......(with plenty of spanking when Maggie would get too excited or get her ears).....to sharing her bone with Maggie this morning and allowing Maggie to play with her (ears would get her spanked). Molly doesn't really play anymore with other dogs/pups....what she does is let them "get her".....sometimes she'll run around a bit to make it harder but she hasn't wrestle played in many years, not even back when Betsy was a puppy. I got some cute pics of them this morning each chewing the end of a long rawhide bone together and Molly letting Maggie play with her. Just need to have Travis get them onto the computer for me. This computer won't take my memory stick so we have to use a special adapter and I don't do it often enough to remember how. Just love having Molly be Molly again!!! And lil Miss Maggie is getting non stop lessons in Manners. Molly and the cats are teaching her and she's learning fast. Bruce (couldn't believe my eyes!) rubbed all up on her yesterday and even let her climb on him a bit before she got too excited and chomped his ear and he bopped her on the head. (no claws, just a bopping warning thing) Maggie sat right down and waited to see if he'd let her play again. Molly has also shown Maggie that the leash is not a tug o war toy, and now she uses it just fine. However, Molly doesn't mind taking her pills...............she HATES the antibiotic ear salve and ear wash I have to do twice a day. Thank heaven for cheese!
