She can't run, she can't play, she can't jump, she can't go for long walks.... for at least nother week. She thinks I'm punishing her. All I do is to try to calm her down, so she doesn't get too exited. It's just too hard. I can't explain why she can't be active. She doesn't understand why we can't do normal things. The only thing she understands is that I don't let her do that. She gets treats and cuddles, but that's not the same. I just feel so mean.

That has to be hard on both of you. Bless her heart! Hope Emma heals quickly and the two of you get back to your normal routine.

Aw poor Emma, That 's the hardest b/c they don't understand, she loves you just the same though!
have you tried playing low key indoor games like hiding treats/kibble around the house for her to sniff and find to eat? it's a good mental exercise that may help make up for her regular physical exercise.

Awwww, I feel so bad for her. Give her alot of mental stimulation maybe?
:-* to her from me.

That's a great idea. I'm just so worried she will get exited and her stitches will open up. I hope I can be more relaxed in a couple of days so I can let her move around more inside.Originally Posted by luke from georgiaDelivered!:-* to her from me.
Aw poor girl. You heal up soon girl
Not that this is any consolation, but when my friends dog tore her cruciate ligament she was on very limited movement for 6 weeks...now THAT is a long time to keep a young dog sane.
My lazy Maisy has a message for Emma..."Enjoy your down time, dude...my ma' drags me on walks through crappy muddy fields at this time of year. I wish I had a week to relax!"
Oh my gosh 6 weeks. Ok we shouldn't complain, right?!Originally Posted by Trickster"You can come here Maisy and keep me company."Originally Posted by Trickster
