Update on Honey

Thank you everyone for all the get well wishes for Honey. I really appreciate them!

Well it's been just over 2 weeks since Honey was hit by a car. We have a daily routine of going outside to potty 4 -5 times and a snack each time she comes in. We have to wrap her front cast in plastic so that it does not get wet while we are out in the snow, then take it off when we come back inside. She can only go out side on a leash but she would love to run and play with our other dog and her companion. I hold her back and make her walk so she doesn't slip and  re break her legs. The last 2 days she has been restless and decided to chew on her cone of shame, Guess what else she decided to chew on. Yep you guessed it!

She had chewed a nice big hole in her wrap, so the vet said to bring her in and they re wrap it and we got another cone for her. So we will see how long this one lasts. ( she even has her chew toys in the kennel with her) The Vet told me she healing nicely and no signs of infections or rubbing sores. She does have some itching where her hair is growing back on her back leg but that is to be expected.

The final thing the Vet said was they would like to see her in this new cast for another 2 weeks. So 2 more weeks with a dog that has spent most of her life outside on the farm running around, and now she has to be  in a kennel in side the house.(except for potty breaks) The trip to the vet must have taken a lot out of her because she is now napping quietly.

I worked on Abigails birth sampler last night and some this morning but this after noon I decided to work on some quilt squares that I started some time ago. More on the both of them later in the week.

Have a great rest of the week
and 
Happy Stitching

It breaks my heart to hear what Honey has gone thru but she looks like a real trooper and getting stronger already. If she is chewing things up it sounds like she has some spunk already :) I pray she keeps getting better every day.

You sure have had your work cut out for you. I'm so glad you love her so much. She is beautiful. What kind of doggie is she. She looks like she has some shepherd in her. Hope everything goes well for her. Hang in there:-)

Oh my goodness! Poor Honey. Those cones do serve a good purpose for the animals. Hope she recovers soon. You are a very loving mommy to her:)
love Annette
