I have friends in from NYC. Took Andy with me as we visited the Parthenon at Centennial Park (where Andy chases squirrels). He isn't limping and his ankle seems to have gone down again. Probably the meds blocking pain and the antibiotics working on his ankle. We only walked across the lawn from where we parked to the Parthenon and back to the car. Roughly 8-10 minutes of slow walking. He really enjoyed getting outside and seeing something. Me too
Then we went by the lake .. just driving. After I dropped them off Andy and I went to Nashville Pet Products, where I got him a bully stick, cans of tripe, some dehydrated duck hearts, pill pockets, and ordered 30 pounds of frozen tripe, which will be here next week. Andy really enjoyed being in there, smelling all the good stuff and getting duck heart treats from the staff.
I can tell Andy is somewhat confused as he gets used to the Gapapentin, which in the early days causes some brain stuff like euphoria. Also, the doubled Tramadol has him a bit loopy. I got him to eat a half a can of tripe. He's getting good at spitting out the pills while losing nothing of the food LOL He'll be adjusted to the Gabapentin in a few more days, I think. It was nice to see him enjoying getting out, although it was 90% in the car as we toured. My friend's 13 year old daughter had Andy's head in her lap and petted him nearly the whole hour and a half we drove around seeing the sights.
Your prayers are working. Thank you!
Happy New Year to all of you wonderful people
See ya next year!!
