Tika comes home

We brought girlie home.  We about had to tackle her as she started bouncing out of the lobby.  It was as if she was saying, let’s get out of here, they’ll steal your leg!  The post-op instructions were pretty clear, rest, pain meds, hopefully she’ll eat and do her bodily functions.

Now the fun part, the dog that isn’t really into riding in the car now has to endure a 40 minute ride on three legs.  I stayed in the back with her and tried to get her to stay still as much as possible.  Hah, that was the longest trip in my life. She did pretty good.  We got her out of the car, she thinks the scarf I’m using as a sling is completely retarded, what is THAT for?  Right off the bat she peed….ALOT. WhooHoo, I don’t Tim and I have been so excited about dog pee in our lives!  We got even more excited when she did #2 later on.

Caya, decided to take her duties as head nurse very seriously and was very good. Of course, she’s trying to figure out what exactly is going on.

We made a pen for Tika so she could be with us and we didn’t have to worry about her moving too much right off the bat and Caya couldn’t accidently hurt her.  She quickly got used to her room and when we’d go out she’d immediately walk back in it.   She’s happy to be home, that’s for sure.

I spent the night by her, she had to wear her e-collar and didn’t really like it.

Look! I'm a flower!
