Last Tuesday (June 17) we took the dogs to the Rockwood Conservation Area to swim. They had such a great time, swam for over 45 minutes and then we went for a walk to the caves and back. It was pretty cool out though so we didn’t get to enjoy our trip overly much, hopefully the warmer weather will soon return. In In the evening though Cessna began to scream whenever she would sit or try and “swish” her tail (Cessna doesn’t wag, she swishes). I was so upset about her screaming because I knew immediately what had happened. She has rudder tail again, she had gotten it the first summer I had her and now again L Rudder tail is from swimming too fast, too hard and for too long…it is sort of like they sprain their tail. I had a feeling I shouldn’t have let her swim so much, but she was having such a great time I didn’t want to make her stop. Well we gave her an Aspirin and it seemed to help dramatically, within about half an hour she was able to sit comfortably. As of Saturday she was fine and her tail no longer looked like it was just pinned to her.
This week has been busy, but fun at the same time. Saturday we were supposed to go to the Multicultural Festival in Kitchener, but it was storming like crazy…the weather these past few weeks has been nothing we’ve ever seen before. On Monday Cessna, my sister and I all headed to Toronto to visit with my friend Lynette and her new guide dog DeeDee. DeeDee is so tiny and so cute. She wasn’t overly sure about Cessna with her energy, but I think after a few times of seeing her DeeDee will understand that Cessna is just playful. This coming weekend we will be having a birthday party for Aspen (5th) and Aiden (6 months). We invited about 15 different dogs and their moms, but only 12 will be attending including my gang. I will post pictures if we get some good ones, last time we had a party for Aspen the pictures didn’t turn out overly well. I know it sounds weird to have a birthday party for your dog and to invite so many other dogs, but I am who I am and well my dogs are not just dogs to me, they are my family. I am always being told that I have too many and that I should get rid of some, but I just tell those people not to come visit if it bothers them because my dogs are all well behaved and get tons of love and exercise so to me that is all that matters.
