It's About Time Mom!!!

SHEESH!  I thought she may NEVER post again!  Well, I'm still here everyone, but my Mom seems to have fallen off the face of the earth this past month so I've had no help writing my blog!  She's been getting ready for school, which has her mind quite occupied.  She will be teaching the Gifted and Talented program this year, so again, it's something new for her to plan for.  She has 3rd, 4th, & 5th graders each one day a week, and while that doesn't seem so bad she just wants to make sure she engages the kiddos and really enriches their education.  Plus, her brother, my Uncle Aaron, came to visit so she left me for a couple of days to take him on a whirlwind tour of Washington.  She also has been taking pictures for some friends, and on top of all of that she has been worrying about me still.

I'm still not doing so hot!  In fact, Mom talked to the vet again two days ago and he said I have tendonitis in both my back legs pretty bad.  The first trip to the vet we were under the impression that it was mainly my right.  Anyway, I am very stiff, especially in the mornings, and I take special precautions when sitting to position myself just right.  He said it mostly just takes ALOT of time with tendonitis.  Maybe by next summer, I'll be good to go!  Also, Mom stopped physical therapy because that just seemed to be making me more stiff.  It's NO fun having tendonitis so you active doggies PLEASE be careful not to disrupt any of your tendons...they are not so forgiving.  As you can see from the picture above, I get to do alot of this type of activity...chewing things!  I don't mind, especially when my chewing objects are as yummy as the yak chew my bro Remi sent me!  This thing also lasted for days which never happens with me and chewies!  In addition to my legs, I woke up the other morning with hives on my muzzle!  Mom thinks it may be either from this new treat she gave me (so she stopped) or from the glucosamine I'm on now, but we don't know for sure.  Anyway, the hives have cleared up now, and I hope they stay gone. That's about it for me now.  I can't promise when I'll get to visit you next as Mom is pretty busy and her brain is inundated with school stuff right now, but I am thinking of you and miss you all greatly! 

I'll leave you with a picture of when I got to go to this fun place with Mom not too long ago to help her scout out photo spots for a family photo session she did with her friend.  Some of you have seen it on her photography blog already but oh well. :)  She says I am her muse...I guess I can work for her as long as I get paid in treats! ;)

Big Kisses & Lots of dog blog love!

Hey Nala

Glad you're back in the land of blogging.

I'm so sorry to hear you have tendonitis. Even for humans, that's terrible!!
I hope you get better and it'll go away soon!

Mango said...

Great to see you. I sure hope you continue to improve. Yuh, those tendon things can take forever. My momma hurt her tendon and she was not fully right for months.

Nice to know that some places still have special classes for the talented and gifted kids. So many schools seem to think that "special needs" only applies to those who struggle with school.

Good to see you, Nala. We wish your mom lots of luck with her new school year. She has quite the challenge ahead of her, but we just know she will do well.

As for you, we are so sorry things are not better. Just keep resting those tendons. That must be very hard for an active pup like you but it sounds like it is best. Hope things start to improve soon.

Hey there Nala, good to see you! Sorry to hear you are still not feeling so hot. Must be tough to not be able to romp like you so love to do! We'll just romps around a little extra and dedicate it to you, OK? Get better soon!

Oh no! Poor Nala! That's not great news at all. Hope your tendons heal up quickly!
As we were driving out to the camping spot I was thinking we were pretty close to Ellensburg! It was nice out there!

Raising Addie said...

Oh Nala we had hoped that you were feeling better. We know that it takes a while to heal sometimes.

We have all our paws crossed that your healing will speed up.

Stay sweet pup!

Lots of Luv & Kisses

Oh Dearest Nala, it's so good to see you again! We're sorry to hear you're taking a little longer than we'd all like for you to get 'ship-shape' again, what a downer for such a sporty girl as yourself. But you have such great pawrents who'll make sure you get there - and we're all willing you on.

That first photo of you is wonderful - that nom looked super yummy! And you look so beautiful in the other photo - sigh....!!!

Good luck to your mom too - she'll be fab!

Oh sis. I hope you get better soon. We will definitely have to plan a get together for next summer. And I will definitely make it up for your birthday next year. Mom said I should be more mellow ("mature") by then. Glad you liked the chew. Hope that wasn't what caused your hives!

Send you and your Mom lots of kisses also from Marja.
