Thanks everyone for asking about Phoenix. She is doing much better. She's still using my crate when mom and papa are away and she still isn't allowed to run and play quite yet but she's feeling lots better! She is using the steps to get on and off the bed and seems like her old self. Mom was even able to cut back on her medicine a little, which is great news for Phoenix.... and me. We have lots of extra meds in case Phoenix had another episode and now we'll have a little more.... or will we?
Last night I stepped onto the couch (I don't have to jump since my legs are so long) and whimpered a little. Mom and papa looked at each other like, "Did we really just hear that?!" Then I was fine until this afternoon. I even endured an unscheduled bath this morning (thanks to the perfume outside) and didn't have a bit of trouble getting in out out of the tub. (Hmm... now that I'm thinking about it, that was a miscalculation on my part!)
But later I cried when I tried to get on the couch. I quickly gave up on that and went to lay in my crate, despite Phoenix having a blankie and toys in there. After my rest, mom then gave me a very handsy exam. Nothing seemed to bother me and I was okay, though not on the couch, for awhile.
Later, when she got back from the store I tried to jump up in excitement (I like to dance in the kitchen when she comes home) and screamed out... and yelped again when I tried to run to her a few minute later outside. Mom noticed that when I rub my itchy face with my right front leg, my back right leg shakes. Mom gave me some of Phoenix's extra anti-inflammatory medicine. I hope that helps. I hate worrying my mom. She waited about 20 minutes and then moved me all around again and made me give standing high fives and sitting high ten... no problems or shakiness. Then I stepped on the couch, I like to snuggle... and made it okay but did whine just a tiny bit.
What is going on here???
WHAT are the PEEPS thinking???
