Update: Piper

Friday afternoon I was able to bring Piper home.  It was an almost 2 hour trip there, and another two back, but knowing that she was in the care of such great surgeons and the incredible price, made it so worth it!  The first two nights she was pretty out of it, but starting yesterday morning we started to see our perky, hyper Piper back.  She’s a very sweet dog, but a very smart one too (Border Collies are considered the smartest dog, see here and here and here, interesting at the least!)so she knows how to work the system. She has been very content to just lay by our sides and sleep while we work on the computer (on the floor!).  But she finally started putting weight on her back knee so that’s a huge praise!  She’s still going to be on a leash for the next 2 months, but I’m sure she will soak up the extra attention.  We are so thankful for the great care she has gotten, and are excited to see her able to regain her normal activities.  She hasn’t been a big fan of the physical therapy exercises…but I think she is starting to feel the benefits as she’s been putting increasingly more weight on it.  She gets her staples out next week and I’ll be sure to update you all on her progress then!  Hope you all have a great Monday, I know on my end they aren’t exactly the easiest day of the week – but I’m thankful for another day, right? 🙂

    I had a Border Collie as a kid- they are smarties! I can imagine mine working the system :).
    I hope Piper continues to get better!!
