I haven't had much time to spend blogging lately. My little girl Sophie has had one health issue after another. A couple of weeks ago she hurt the disc in her back when she slipped on the floor getting out of her new bed. I never really thought this through when we tore out all of our carpet a couple of years ago. It is very hard on a little girl who is almost 17 yrs. old to not have carpeting. While she was healing from her back injury all of a sudden she started acting strange. She was very weak and leaning to one side. Of course I freaked out and automatically thought she had a stroke. Well, thank goodness it wasn't a stroke but something called Old Dog Vestibular Disease. Basically it is an inner ear infection which gives you the symptoms of a stroke. Actually my husband had an inner ear infection and spent 3 days in the hospital being tested for a stroke. Since she hurt her back she has had to stay gated in our den. I borrowed the area rug from my living room so she doesn't have to walk on the slippery floor. It is so hard to see your pet look so sad. :( We've been hand feeding her to get her to eat. Today has been a much better day for her since she got this a week ago. She goes back to see the doctor Tuesday so I'm keeping my fingers crossed she continues to improve.
Have a great weekend everyone! It was 72 here today...loving this weather!
