Welcome to the family….I think all of us talk back to our animals, we discuss world events, philosophy, you name it! 😉
Good job holding down the reigns on her activity. Her body will thank you a thousand times over when recovery is a distant memory.

So now she will just sit and talk to us…. we talk back….. because we are normal like that.
I talk to my dogs all the time! I take TriPugMutt Elly to HomeDepot, it’s helpful to work on her fear issues. I find myself talking to her in the aisles, a little embarrassing I suppose, I just pass it off as I’m giving her commands.
You may find that DJ isn’t going to slow down. Tripawds like to go fast, it’s easier for them to balance. My rear amp Elly is a small Pug mix, her most comfortable gait is a bit faster than is comfortable for me to walk. I do have cranky knees though, but her pace is very quick.
