EDIT - I am adding this after posting - I got an email from my aunt and their dog Abby is hurt and could use some purrs and woofs! Here is what she said:
I know you are all animal lovers and wanted to ask - Can everyone say a
little prayer for our dog Abby? She had hurt herself probably jumping off
furniture (they get crazy when they hear dogs outside) and I had her to the
vets a twice last Monday. She's had shots and been on Prednizone and
Tramodol for pain and we've been keeping her confined when we're gone, and
she was doing much better till yesterday. This morning she was really stiff
again and whimpering when I'd pick her up so Ric took her back to the vet
and left her for the day. They think she may need to see a specialist and
maybe have surgery depending on what's wrong. I feel so badly for her.
Here is a picture of Abby.
I had planned to do a cute post, and to try to make some pirate blingees, but honestly I was so tired I just didn't get the chance - which is actually not a huge deal, since I don't really do good pirate talk anyway! So I hope everyone had fun at least - I can't wait to see the posts from everyone else!
Kirzon seems to be doing better - he is still pulling the fur out a little but I think the meds take a little while to kick in, and he doesn't look like he has pulled much out since the shot. The only reason I know he did it at all is that I saw him on Saturday night - I didn't see anything on Sunday, so hopefully it will stop completely.
So, now I need some advice - Stella and Gus keep climbing up on the railing in the hallway upstairs - and that is very high up. I don't know what to do to stop them - I am very afraid they will fall. Stella was up there this morning, and Brad caught them both up there last night. Does anyone have any ideas how to stop them? This isn't something I can spray them with the water squirter or do anything that scares them because then they could fall, and we don't really have a way to blog it off because it would need to be something that goes high and that they can't climb. Any suggstions would really be apprecaited. The railing is very thin and today it looked like Stella was going to try to turn around, which with the thin railing seems like it would be a very bad thing.
I will try to get some more pictures up later - hopefully not of Stella on the railing - I swear it give me a near heart attack every time! Have a great week everyone!
