Happy New Year

spirit2017

It was a beautiful, sunny New Year’s Day so my big girl and I went for a walk together without any of the other dogs.  Spirit has been having trouble getting used to sharing her “Mom” with our foster puppy McMullin.  Whenever I try and smooch him she pushes him out of the way and tries to get the attention.

nailShe was spayed 2 weeks ago so she has been very bored hanging out around the house without any physical activity except 2 gentle walks a day.  Somehow she still managed to rip her toe nail almost completely off and leave just exposed tissue and bone.  I had the unfortunate job of having to trim off the nail.  I’m so lucky that we have such a strong bond that she completely trusted and allowed me to slowly and careful trim back the nail close to the base.  Poor girl.  She has sure had a run of bad luck health wise.  Let’s hope that 2017 is a new beginning for her.
