Rain rain go away

Hey everyone!

I have the day off work today and I am very happy to get to spend it at home, watching over Oslo. He’s doing well, though I think that he is entering the stage in his recovery where he wants to get up a GO even though he doesn’t quite have the physical ability to do so. It’s getting harder & harder to keep him quiet & still. He also hates being in his crate away from us, so we often will set him up on a blanket in whatever room we are in. He’s pretty good following directions to ‘stay’, but we have to watch him. Sometimes when we turn our back he’ll scuttle like a lightening bolt across the floor. It’s seriously amazing how fast he can army crawl, while dragging his legs. I’d laugh if it were so pathetically sad!

I am bringing one of his urine samples into his vet today for them to do a urinalysis with.  We just need to make sure that this little guy doesn’t have any sort of a UTI. He doesn’t have any symptoms, but UTIs are very common in dogs who don’t have full control over their bladder, so we need to check him out for them 1-2 times a week. I’m just glad that I can bring in a sample and I don’t have to bring HIM in. Thank goodness for that.

Oslo is NOT happy with the rain today!

  1. Sounds like its nearing time to set up the ex pen. I would sit inside there with Sam and if I had to go up, I know he can’t crawl too far. BTW. You can take out sections of the ex pen and make it as small as a box (4 sections). At that size, it’s almost the same size as his crate, but isn’t as confined at the top.
