Look At Me. Walking Around Logan Square!

Hi everyone,

It's been a few days since my last post but I wanted you to see how much progress I'm making!  My wheels are "in the shop" while they make some adjustments to make it easier for me to walk.  In the meantime my foster mom was able to retrofit this standing sling with wheels and some extra support and I can use this as a wheel chair too!  Here I am walking around Logan Square using all 4 legs to motor.  My back legs are still way less functional, but heck, I'm not complaining because I can use these front legs to scoot scoot scoot!   My friends at Integrative Pet Care haven't seen this video yet -- I bet they will love it!

And guess how much I weigh?  18 lbs!  Yup....fatty!  Enjoy.

My First Steps Outside. It Feels So Good!

I got to take my first steps outside in the "real" world this week.  It felt crazy good.  Now I am obsessed with looking at the window to see all of the cool stuff out there that I have been missing.  With these wheels I can go anywhere!  I dare you to try to slow me down!  Love to Emma and Dr. Ridley for helping me get to this spot!

Get A Load Of This! I'm MOVING!!

Barracuda No More!

Well, the big day arrived.  I lost my first baby tooth!  Of course it happened with my favorite therapists and friends at Integrative Pet Care.  Foster mom missed my big moment!   It was my top right canine.  I'm excited because apparently the tooth fairy is coming tonight.  Foster mom is excited because she says that's one less fang to gnaw on her with!

What will the tooth fairy bring me?  I can't wait!

More Friends and More Friends and More Friends!!

I have to admit that I'm a pretty darn social little gal.  I make friends wherever I go.  My foster mom likes to say I'm "breaking hearts and taking names!"  Anyway, I got to spend a few days with Aunt Jackie, she is another CEBR volunteer who babysat me.  I got to meet Daisy, her rescue bully, 10 years young, and Anthony and Colton, human kids and my new BFFs. We had a ball.  I love being the center of attention.  Nope, I'm not ashamed to say it!

I've Got Lots Of Fun Lil' Things To Report

Hi friends,

I have had such a busy few days and am making friends right and left!  Cranberry, Nena, and Fifty, a 2-legged pitbull.  I loved him and was very curious about him.  I could tell he was "challenged" like myself.  But he seems to get around just fine.

I also got to spend time with a frenchie named Tug who really did love to...well...tug.  He didn't give me any special treatment in our play.  He tugged hard and strong and really made me work for this playtime.

I wish I could have stood up to pull back and forth with him, but know I will be able too in good time!  More updates later this week!

Diapers That Stay On! Whooppeeee!

Get a load of these diaper suspenders!  Yup!  We figured it out and my diapers now STAY ON!  No more poo patties!


By the way, look how much I have grown.  I'm a big girl now!

Did You See Me Moving In My Wheels?

Just in case you missed it, I HAVE to post it here!  Look at me go!

Cranberry and I Had A BALL!

My foster mom gave me a big surprise this week.  She took me out for the night because said she wanted me to make a new friend... one that would tell me what having orthopedic issues is all about.  I wasn't sure what I had in store...but boy oh boy...what fun I had!

I got to meet Cranberry another CEBR rescue bully who was born with issues not too different than mine!  She gave me a pep talk and then we got down to business....playing!

Check out our playdate!

I also got to play with Nena too -- we were all fast friends!
