I'm bored, now. Really really bored.

This recuperation stuff is not for Madison. She has been trying to be good, taking it easy and resting a lot. But she is kind of like a horse, chomping at the bit. Ready to roll. So what if her belly is shaved from here to there, she feels like strutting it at the dog park.

It's going to be a long long week, before the stitches are out next Monday.

H-Mom is adamant. No dog park: no agility jumping, no dirt-wrestling, no swimming.

Even a quick lunge for a lizard or teasing squirrel is being discouraged. H-Mom has been walking Madison like she is a tottering little old granny. Slowly.

This is getting old.

There is no such thing as a chew toy that will keep her busy for a week. (Although this is a really really good one.) Any ideas?

Oh dear... We can empathize somewhat. When Tommy had his little problem last August, he wasn't supposed to run or jump for 10 days. The only solution the vert could think of, given his temperament and breed, was to keep him on a mild tranquiliser initially, eventually switching to a homeopathic one,

Madison is such a smart girl -- perhaps crossword puzzles or sudoku with a nice pencil or two to chew on????

Just Harry likes to chew books when he gets bored.

We jesting in a really loving way, and understand how tough it is for her to be quiet, We're terriers after all.

You must be going a little cracker dog. Maybe you can play some mental stimulations games.
