Evening update

Video is on its way.  Les is still working on it.

Tomorrow we will take Sweetheart for a bandage change and a weigh in.  I don't know if she has gained more weight or not.  Her ribs are all filled in and she seems to be building more muscle in her back legs.  I think all the wild and crazy chasing of Jackie and Cleo is great medicine.  She continues to think Jackie is her life sized chew toy.  She is playing in the house still and randomly gets her toy skunk (thanks Jennifer) and chews on it.  She is also still entertained with chewing my hand and mouthing at me when she is feeling feisty yet lazy (all the while lying on her side on the air bed).

Tomorrow one of our volunteers will pick up Sweetheart and Bavarian to take to her house.  Journey is at Paul's house and my other three will be boarded at the vet's office.  It is bittersweet for me.  I need a break but I will miss them all.  I am glad Sweetheart is so strong and healthy at this point or else it would be that much harder to leave her.  I will ask Sweetheart's vacation foster mom to update the blog for me if she will agree to do so.  Please keep checking the blog and posting your comments and questions.  I will have my laptop in New Orleans and will check it in the evenings most likely.

The picture of Sweetheart on the top of the blog's main page will stay up until she is ready to be adopted.  I feel that it should stay up for a while longer because it is good for everyone, new to the blog and tried and true fans, to know just how far she has come in four and a half weeks.


  1. *gasp* You mean she has to go on vacation without her favorite chew toy? How will the little princess get by? ;)

    We all need a break sometimes! I'm sure Sweetheart will continue to thrive! Have fun -- I know I'd try to if I were in New Orleans!

  2. Hope you have a lovely time away.

    Looking forward to the next video.

  3. Is it only 4 1/2 weeks? It seems like I've known and worried about and cheered on Sweetheart and yourself for a lot longer than that:-) And hasn't she come such a long way in a short space of time. Have some Gumbo for me, I'm never likely to be able to try it:-) New Orleans is the home of Gumbo isn't it?
