This Is A Sick Dog?

Yesterday was a beautiful Autumn day. The sun was shining and the leaves were falling and Samba thought it was a perfect day to play with her favorite toy, the Flying Cow.

Rob and I went outside with just Samba. The others sat in the window and watched.There is too much competition between Morgan and Samba to let them both go after the frisbee.  Besides, I think it's good to give each dog some individual attention.


First Rob threw some low ones for her to run after.


 Then he started throwing some higher ones for her to catch.

 She loves this game and would play until she dropped.

 Can you believe this is the dog with the damaged jaw muscles, who a year ago couldn't open her mouth?
 Obviously, she is doing well with her treatment. In a couple weeks she goes in for her one year checkup.

Go, Samba!!! That's remarkable. What a lovely, strong girl! Sissy has two more doses of her immunosuppressant... then, we'll see... Wondervet says if we haven't had a flare-up on this VERY stepped-down dosage, we should be okay. (Fingers crossed)

Samba, what a wonderful recovery! I followed you back to thank you, Sue, for your comment about the Wish List and laundry supplies. When I mentioned things, I was thinking of items I'd donated that rescue wanted when my old Chessie past over the Rainbow. I was remembering how difficult it is to figure out what to do with all the "stuff".
You've given us an idea how to get more aid for some "no kill" shelters we know are in danger of closing. Right now people are voluntarily sponsoring individual dogs, and one runs a thrift shop staffed by volunteers.

Good for you, Samba. That must really make Mom and Dad feel so good. We aren't much into chasing frisbees, we would rather chew them:(

Happy Sunday - what an awesome fall we are having after that awful summer!

that's some fine frisbee play. that's one game that we haven't gotten involved in. we don't understand frisbees. maybe Samba could give us a few pointers.

Our dogs really love frisbee, but a couple of them just want to run around with one in their mouth, they could care less about chasing it!

I'm glad Samba mended and is able to enjoy her favorite game!

Zona said...

Samba, your frisbee skills are SO impressive. Maybe you can give me a few tips someday... with the frisbee you so kindly sent me!!! Thank you SO much. We were ALL so surprised and excited by all the pressies. I'm about to blog about it.
