Playing Hard To Get

Marlin pretends he doesn't like me, but I know he really does. :)




On a side note...I went to the vet yesterday because I have been a bit limpy since I played with Marlin last.  The vet just said it was probably a strain, so he gave me some chewable pills which I eat like treats for inflammation and I have to be on strict rest for 2 whole weeks!  It's already hard!  Wish me luck.

The only time I've had to be on strict rest (so far) is when I got spayed, and the vet gave Mom some drugs for me that made me Super Sleepy for a couple of days, because it was the only way to keep me down! Good luck!

We can relate to 2 weeks on restricted duty. Just not in a Ridgeback's bag of tricks. When they tell us that mom just laughs! And says...hello, they are Ridgebacks.

Wags!

PeeS. Hopes you feel much better soon!

Oh. That really IS hard. Maybe a treat-filled Kong would help? Sounds good to me, too....

Marlin is quite a cutie!
Bed rest is TOUGH! Darwin got a lot of raw bones while she had to stay quiet for a few weeks!
Hope you feel better soon! Are you going to make it out for Remi's birthday? (Did I ask that already? My brain's been slow lately. :) )

Oh, Nala. Don't you worry. You're gonna win Marlin over in no time! How could he resist your charms?

Hey Nala - I get limps like that all the time! :-) It's coz I play so rough - and I have an "old war wound" in my front left paw now where I got tendonitis before - it keeps getting inflammed again from time to time and I get those chewable pills too! My humans say my middle name should be Rimadyl! :-)

Slobbers,

How could Marlin not like you, you are so sweet. We hope your meds help your limping. No fun having to be on strict rest - good luck to you and to your Mom.

I only know of Nala and Africa's BFF, Leo, as Rhodesians, but it seems that he is always getting hurt as well. Those funny dogs! I am so glad Love and Logic is recommended. Believe me, I am open to ALL IDEAS. Thanks!

Marlin does look kind of mean, but it seems like he likes the attention!

Gus has been limpy after playing, too. Think he's just getting older!
