On Thursday at noon I took Lÿka in to the specialist to take her cast off and do some more x-rays. The x-ray showed a white line where there was once a black one, apparently that means the fracture is filled in with bone n she's heeled up nicely! So her cast came off and I was given instruction to restrict her exercise but slowly let her build up over a week or 2 so she can rebuild her strength in her leg. Well, that's easier said than done... LOL. She limps a lil on the leg every now n then, but she's walking n running on it just fine n bearing weight with no problem, n I can move it in every direction without any reaction from her.

As for keeping her calm... I thought she was pretty damn hyper with her cast on wearing a cone on her head... well now that she's castless with 3 weeks of energy bottled up, she's kinda lost it :lol: She's really showing her true colors again. Like this morning she was about 30ft from me, I kneeled down n called her, she turns around, puts her ears down n hauls ass at top speed toward me, then 3-4+ft in front of me she launches herself into the air straight into my chest, luckily I caught her LOL. I put her down n she started running circles around me growling n snarling n attacking my arms n legs n hands n ankles etc. If a neighbor had seen that they woulda thought I was abusing her or something :lol: :lol: I finally managed to grab her n take her to her crate to settle down n let her leg rest. Tonight I took her out for potty n she was doing what she used to do, but a little more violently.... I had her on a leash so she couldn't over-stress her leg again n she wouldn't let go of her leash, she was tugging HARD on it, growling n snarling. She finally went potty n then she proceded to drag me back into the house walking backwards with leash firmly in her mouth.

I think she's about to lose teeth, I see blood on one of her teeth, I'm pretty sure it's on its way out... so I don't play tug with her or anything.. well, I don't play tug with HER, but she plays tug with ME :lol: She's definately back to her old self, so she's on her way to a full recovery and rehab!

She doesn't like swimming, but she can do it. When I first got her I took her swimming every day for a couple weeks, pick her up, go into the pool n let her swim to the steps n climb out, that's about the extent of what she's willing to do. I'll start doing that again with her though, I really wish both my dogs enjoyed the swimming pool, Cujo hates it more than anything n Lÿka doesn't care for it but doesn't freak out about it.
