She actually recovered extremely well, so well in fact, that she suffered a dislocated knee on Friday running on the ovals. But after another trip to our lovely local vet, she's on the way to a full recovery - hopefully. I say hopefully, because we're supposed to be keeping her quiet and not taking her for her walks until at least Wednesday, to try and give the knee time to repair, but try telling her that!
She's definitely getting cabin fever already and is extremely feisty. She's insisting on playing football and constantly bringing her ball to our feet and her poor toy dog has been positively savaged.
Looking at her here makes me thing its time for the summer 'teddybear' cut, but I'm always a little wary about doing it too early. Remember its Melbourne after all. Supposedly the temperatures are forecast to be around the high 20's for the next few days, so I think we may be safe.
I can't help thinking what a pampered pooch she is.....she's devouring a lamb bone here.
But then not all dogs have such a life.
On a serious note.... there was a protest rally held today in Melbourne against puppy farming.
For almost two decades Debra Tranter has dedicated her life to exposing the mistreatment taking place in secluded sheds across the country. She sacrificed her 90K job, suffered burglaries, and assaults and even has an 'if Mum gets arrested and goes to jail' plan for her kids.
She came up with the idea of Oscar's Law.
Oscar was one of a number of dogs who were rescued from a puppy factory in central Victoria where they had been neglected to the point they required urgent veterinary care.
Oscar’s Law Campaign is in memory of all the ‘Oscars’ hidden away on factory farms treated as breeding machines to supply the pet industry.
