I just logged in and started reading all the posts about Trouble and I was so worried!!! But it sounds like she's doing better now... thank God!!! Hopefully it was just because of the long day at the spa... But if things aren't back to normal by Monday, you should probably check with your vet, just in case...
Sending you lots of hugs!!
Angel Jake's Mom
Jake, 10yr old golden retriever (fractured his front right leg on 9/1, bone biopsy revealed osteosarcoma on 9/10, amputation on 9/17) and his family Marguerite, Jacques and Wolfie, 5yr old german shepherd and the newest addition to the family, Nala, a 7mth old Bengal mix kittie. Jake lost his battle on 11/9/2009, almost 8 weeks after his surgery. We will never forget our sweet golden angel… http://jakesjou.....ipawds.com ….. CANCER SUCKS!

NOTE TO SELF! (YOU!)
Do not make Trouble get all beautified when we have our upcoming September triple birthday party! Okay? I don't want another water skiing legs episode during our 12 day birthday celebration (a day for every year)!
Okay, she can get her nails painted BUT THAT IS IT!
Comet - 1999 to 2011
She departed us unexpectedly January 23, 2011 at the age of 12 1/2.
She was born with a deformed front leg and a tripawd all of her life.

I think I learned my lesson - I will probably still bring her in for a bath, but she can air dry. And maybe nails will be done another day. I may try some dry shampoo, problem is with her allergies it makes me a bit nervous to sprinkle chemical on her.

Shanna did you ever see our post about Dr. Bronner's soap shampoo? The ingredients are so pure, I'm betting it would be really good for her skin, and the peppermint really soothing;
The spa day might have made her very tired but at least she looks and smells great!
