Happy to report it’s been a pretty quiet 4 weeks since I last posted. After we took Riley walking on the hill at the ranch and she remembered that she indeed has a right front leg, she’s been using it most of the time, instead of hobbling on three legs–hooray!! She’s been back at the ranch a few times, and is happy to stroll around. (Ok, it’s more that she’s happy to see all of her adoring fans, but I think the walking is ok too.)
We had Riley’s 10-week X-rays taken two weeks ago, which didn’t show anything out of the ordinary. She’s still staying with her “grandma” (my mom) and “auntie” (my sister), because they live in a one-story home. Clearly, she doesn’t mind it.
So…so far, so good. Hopefully Riley will continue to make progress and can eventually do the two flights of stairs to our apartment. But I have a feeling she doesn’t mind whether she stays with us or with my mom. This dog has a lot of people who care about her.
