Bullet takes a nap

The weather has been very cold lately so the hounds get plenty of nap time. I thought Bullet looked cute with his paws folded over and his tongue sticking out.

The Hounds Rooing to the CSI Intro

The hounds wait until they hear the intro music to "Who Are You" and then start rooing. It is so funny to see Tommy's ears perk up and then they start.

Stephanie sits with her baby

The brace on the inside

The inside is well padded and provides a lot of protection and seems like it would be comfortable. We have to watch how it wears on her leg to see if it will need any adjustment.

The Brace from Orthopets

The brace has a nice rubber tread and the hinge is flexible plastic. It gives support and tends to spring back to the shape it is in now.

Stephanie gets her leg brace

Today we got Stephanie's leg brace. She has to learn to walk with it and get used to wearing it. We have to let her wear it for short periods of time and work up to 6 hrs. We hope this will help her walk and run without pain.

Stephanie gets a leg brace

We are ordering a leg brace for Stephanie from Orthopets in Denver, CO. We had to create a cast of her leg so they can get the proper fit for the brace. Stephanie was very good for the whole procedure. We hope to help relieve the pain in her leg when she walks.

This is a great shot of Bliss in the back yard. I have to put straw down, because they race around the trees and dig up the grass. It the turns to mud when it rains. The straw keeps the mess down. We now have new carpet and want to minimize any mud coming into the house.

Stephanie loves getting brushed. Morgan loves to brush her and all of the other hounds. They get a lot of attention from Morgan when she visits.

Glow is working hard in the mulch

Glow is digging like crazy in the mulch pile. She will dig in one direction and then spin around and dig in the opposite direction. It is really funny watching her and it looks like she is having a great time.

Morgan is here!

Our granddaughter, Morgan, came for a visit. Bliss and Morgan have a little tug-o-war. Bliss always wins. She won't let go for anything.

Bliss takes an interest in the mulch pile

Bliss has started turning over the mulch like Glow does. They are my little helpers. I throw the mulch back into the hole and they did it out and turn it over.

Stephanie has foot problems

Stephanie stopped using her right rear leg. We took her to the Vet for her bi-annual teeth cleaning and while she was there, they removed her outer toe on that foot because it has digging into the adjacent toe. Glow shows some interest in her when she got home from the Vet.

Glow and Stephanie share some time together

Our two big girls have had a tough year so far and this moment seems to capture how they are feeling. Glow always seems to have a very tender feeling toward Stephanie when she is having problems. They have been friends for a long time. This day was bed washing day and the hounds all started laying on the beds while the covers were being washed.

Glow and Stephanie are getting better

Both Glow and Stephanie are doing well now. Itook a couple of weeks for Glow to get back to normal, but now there is no evidence of any past problems. Stephanie seems to be improving also.

Glow isn't eating very well

We had to hand feed Glow to get any food into her. Even the most favourite foods didn't get her appetite up.

Kathy feeding Glow

Kathy hand feeds Glow. We were quite concerned that Glow may have got some brain damage from her experience, but she got better.

Glow gets sick

This has been an awful start for the New Year. First I get sick, then Stephanie and now Glow. I woke up hearing Glow walking in circles and barely able to stand up. When I held her, she was shaking like she might be having a seizure and patting very hard. We rushed her to the Vet. After they checked her, they said she had Vestibular Disease. This causes disorientation and usually takes care of itself. Unfortunately, Glow is frightened of being in the Vet clinic and she worked herself up so much that we had to take her home.
