Duncan

Duncan hasn’t been very interested in playing for a while, but its hard to know if that’s because he hasn’t been feeling well or if its because of the heat, or a combination of the two (which is my guess). I’ve also gotten the impression that the Doxycycline has been making him feel a bit icky, so I’ve increased his yogurt intake. Monday afternoon, Duncan gave me a very pleasant surprise – he picked up his purple Jolly Ball and started tossing it around. Now, I have no idea if he felt like playing because the weather was a little cooler, or because the yogurt was helping with the Doxy, or if the Doxy is actually having an impact on the Ehrlichia. There’s just no way to know right now. But he definitely played more Monday afternoon and evening than he has in a very long time. Paws crossed that this trend continues…

glad he is feeling better - so has his walking improved? or does he still walk on his pasterns?

Unfortunately, Duncan's still low on his pasterns. He's been wearing Reyna's wrist braces when he exercises, and I've ordered some that will fit him better. They really seem to help him move, especially when he's herding sheep.
