Blossom is getting around and starting to act more like herself. Initially she was afraid to go outside, but now she even wants to go for walks again. She has started to bark whenever someone comes to the front door and she is greeting Gus when he comes home from work by jumping up on her hind legs and digging at his pants. She is wagging her tail in greeting, which is good, but she still can’t hold it over her back and wave it like a flag like she used to. Every day it goes higher though, and we still have hope. She has now had 3 class IV laser treatments which the doctor recommended to promote healing. It seems to be doing her some good and she now relaxes and lays down for her treatment. She has 3 more to go. Next Friday we will have a recheck with the vet and hopefully he will give her the all clear. I just want everyone to know that the owners of the other dog have taken full responsibility and have paid all of Blossom’s bills. We have no malice towards them. They did not want this to happen any more than we did. As for Gus, he is sore and tired but healing up just fine. I think that he will be okay, though he still hasn’t seen a doctor. Right now he is just happy to see Blossom acting more like herself.
