So the posting has been slow... mirroring Clewie's recovery.
At about the 5 or 6 week mark, Clewie started using her leg and now at the almost 3 month mark, I think she's caught up on her progress. She hardly ever holds it up - except when she's running and excited.
we've gone on long hikes of over an hour and a half.... though then I've seen her seem tired or sore - so we've taken it easy the next couple of days.
Currently she is still on Rimadyl... but her tramadol is down to 1 pill twice a day and tomorrow I'm going to try removing her completely from it.
We've adopted another doggie as well - she regularly plays with him, but they haven't started all out running wrestling, usually it's just mouth wrestling, tug or a little chase with a toy to wrestle. And i monitor it - so to stop them if they get too excited.
