    DefaultShe feels neglected...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    :-* to her from me.

    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!"
