While Zoe is still recovering from getting spayed she longs for some much needed playtime in the courtyard. In the meantime she is enjoying this lovely fall weather from our patio. Poor girl. :\
Skyler joins in on the fun as well. He follows Zoe everywhere and never was much of an outside cat. I guess he feels that if Zoe is allowed patio access then he is too.
Luckily they are both behaving themselves around my carved pumpkins. I thought for sure she would chew them to pieces. Perhaps there's hope for me having a Christmas tree this year after all? *crosses fingers*
Yesterday morning I checked Zoe's stitches and I noticed a bit of redness. I was a little worried at first but after speaking with the Vet and rereading the instruction sheet I was reassured that this was perfectly normal.
Just to be safe I keep checking the stitches regularly and so far all redness is gone and the incision is healing perfectly.
By day two Zoe was already back to her normal peppy self. She just doesn't understand that she can't go out in the courtyard and play with her doggy buddies, so she is whining and giving me sad panda faces a lot. Oy!
Someone got spayed today and is not happy about it. We took her into our vet this morning at 7:30am and picked her up at 1:30pm. She was very delirious but obviously happy to see us. Once we got home she stopped at the door and waited for us to unleash her and went straight for the bedroom, stood in front of the bed and Daniel carefully lifted her up. This dog isn't spoiled at all!! I'm just happy she is doing well and resting. The next 7 to 10 days should be interesting.
Zoe has a bit of an obsession with ice cubes. We started giving ice to her when she was a teething pup and just never stopped. If she hears me open the freezer door she ninjas her way over to me and sits down behind me like a well trained dog. Though she's far from it haha.
Sunny was groomed and shaved at Petsmart a few days ago. We were a little shocked, confused and humored by what we saw when we picked her up from the groomer. Two blue bows! I called them granny bows. Zoe wanted nothing to do with Sunny or her bows haha.
This evening Daniel and I took Zoe to the Katy Dog Park. While there is only one small lake, there are lots of trees and a plethora of squirrels for Zoe to chase. There's also no cracks in the ground and it doesn't flood.
Zoe is on the hunt for more squirrels. Lets just hope she never catches one.
This evening was really quite beautiful and Zoe had a ton of energy, so going to the park was very necessary. I've yet to meet an aggressive dog at this park as well. While I do still love Millie Bush Bark Park, I will probably be going to this park a lot more.
She always manages to find the biggest sticks. She also likes to tease other dogs with her findings "na na na na look what I got. Come get me!"
"Tug-a-war is the funnest game ever!"
She was leaping higher than usual today. I'm glad I was able to get a few good shots of it on my camera phone.
Tomorrow we are off to the beach. Zoe hasn't been since she was 5 months old so I'm hoping now that she is trained, she can run off leash and just be a happy pup. We shall see.
Hi, I'm Alison and I have an 2 year old black lab mix named Zoe. She was found wandering around by herself near a highway at just 5 weeks old. While her story begins sad, she has had nothing short of a spoiled, happy and healthy life since coming home with me and my boyfriend.
