    Default11 DOWN 73 TO GO

    Pretty tough day for HK yesterday with the Grandson here for the day. She didn't get 100% of my attention. But she got enough.

    The hardest part for her was constantly having to get up to move away from one of them. Ben likes to pull on dog parts. Any part that he can get his hands on. He does it to his own dog also. His parents are working on it, put its tough to teach 17 month olds. I told HK last time that the couch was a safe place, and it worked last time. But Ben had learned how to climb up on the couch himself, so we had to come up with another baby gate arrangement to give HK her own space, and keep everyone from the stairs.

    Anyway, she keeps looking forward to her PT and special walks. We crossed paths with a Cocker and a Great Dane yesterday. HK really wanted to play, and the other owners felt bad when I wouldn't let HK play, and worse when they realized why. But she really is improving every day. She is now at a stage when I think I am the only one that will see the improvements, or setbacks. The left leg is pretty much on the ground all the time now. Only a few hops when she initially gets up.

    The toughest part right now is controlling her excitement when a visitor comes over. I have to hold her down from trying to jump and get the visitor to get down to say hello and give a few pets. Then she is happy just circling the guest and giving a few pokes at the crotch.<g>

    She is doing really well. Tess didn't go outside the house for 6 weeks.

    Their excitment is the hardest part.

    I'm glad she's doing well! But I imagine it would be hard to keep her excitement and energy managed.
