Old dog, old bones

Poor Maggie. She got a little over excited on our walk this morning and chased the ducks.
Most unusual for her, but she’s paying for it now even if it was only a few steps at speed.
She has spent the majority of the evening on her cushion in front of the radiator surrounded by her babies, but come bedtime, she was so stiff, we gave her a half dose of metacam and a hot water bottle.
Yep, she is stretched out alongside me nestled against her babies with the hot water under her hip which was giving her the trouble.
She must be comfy and pain free as she is snoring her little head off.
Bless.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I feel her pain. My knees are driving me nuts. Iโ€™ve sitting with a heating pad myself. It sounds like sheโ€™s got some relief, which is good. Happy she is sleeping peacefully.

    Bless her. She looks so much like my Ani in this one…and mine snores too..

  3. I can relate to this ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. RC sends a smile from her spot in the sun on her heating pad. “Winter,” she says, “is for the young”
