Still here

We've had some beautiful, if cool, days.
A week and a half since the last dose of Meloxicam.
Roxy is still going on all cylinders.
Telling everyone off:  HER, Dui, Bella, people on the street,
 cats, dogs....
Taking prime positions on beds....couch....in front of heater.
So back to normal but still 'under watch'.
We're on 'Winter Schedule'.
No Early Morning Walk.
River run at about 8 a.m. and later walk in the middle of the day.
We usually run into some of the 'river people' every morning
and our Weekends have been with everyone--with spacing.
 Teddy, Roxy's doppleganger, has grown up. 
 Sort of a Roxy with legs. And more spots.
So Life is Good.

Day Three without Meloxicam

The end of a wild game.

May the Fourth Be With You...

It has certainly been with Roxy!
We've had two days without the Magic Potion.
(Meloxicam)

Saturday and Sunday were both rather dismal days.  Cold and cloudy.


 But that didn't stop Roxy's race and ram technique with Dui.
 And Bella just moseyed behind us...as usual.
 This Morning, Monday, it was cold, but the sun was out!
Searching for 'roos was on the agenda.
Left,
 Right.
 Neither has worked out that since we've had rain and there is an abundance of feed around,
the 'roos don't need to be on our side of the river.
But they keep looking......just in case.
Here's a photo of the mist rising on the river this morning.

Paws crossed for Roxy's  continued improvement.
We have a few doses left of the Magic Potion
in case she has a relapse, and a 'hurried' visit
to the Vet won't be needed.

Lockdown fun.

At the river, Roxy used to wait for Diane to finish her coffee.
After licking out any coffee-milk residue, 
the ripped up the cardboard cup.


She hasn't done it for awhile, but last weekend  at the river,  she enjoyed ripping up the cup.  Yesterday, stopped for a coffee and apple slice to bring home.  Roxy was very excited when she saw the cup.  Had a great time ripping it up!

Reopening Too Early

After nearly two weeks of restricted movement, Roxy was bouncing off the walls.
She was allowed to go to the river Saturday morning.
We hope it isn't the equivalent of reopening
the economy too soon.
We took a leisurely walk around the track.


 She got in a bit of duck stalking,

and  socialised a bit with the other dogs.
There appears to be a bit of weakness in her back legs,
more evident when she's tired.
But she managed a good trot most of the way.


It is probably the effects of the drugs, so she was supervised carefully and not allowed to run. 
 However, an hour outside made her ready to be quiet 
for the rest of the day.
Thanks for all the good advice and POTP.
