    Default Update on Tara

    She is up and walking. Not always well, when she is tired or over excited her left front will not keep up and she might go down on her chin, but she's able to motor around the house. She can also go up and down the steps to the backyard for potty, tho I think we will always do that on lead as her front quarters don't always keep up with her hindquarters.

    Little always (and this will probably be for the rest of her life) has her harness on now, so that when we need to help her, it isn't by her neck and we have a bit more control over her whole front assembly.

    She saw her doc today and he said we will probably see more improvement over the course of the next week and then she may plateau.

    What she has now, is FAR more than I thought we would get so anything from here on is a bonus.

    Thank you everyone for the jingles and well wishes, we love our Little Dog.

    How did I miss this??!!

    YAY from my littles and bigs to your Little!! My thoughts continue for her ongoing progress!

    Is the nightshade still the most likely suspect?
    When someone shows you who they are, BELIEVE THEM.

    Yes, Doc thought it the most likely thing. We will never know for sure, but just as a precaution, I've ripped most out and what I could not get to, had RoudUp applied to the plant and the plants around it (no where near the potty pen)

    So glad that she's back home and doing better. Fingers crossed for continued improvement

    BTW I call my old Boston girl "little dog" too, or just "Little" for short
