Ayer fui al veterinario y me dijo que la incisión está bien y que la semana que viene podría quitar algún punto.

Sé que tiene que descansar, pero a veces tengo que jugar con ella, ladra todo el tiempo para que juegue.

Jara the WonderDog Tripawd!!!   It blows my mind to see how well Jara is doing!!  A truly magical recovery!!!!  And it makes me smile to see Jara so sooooo happy amd full of so much joy😁

You might want to get some cheap non slip scatter rugs for traction so she doesn't slip when running.

I just love seeing videos of Jara and then progress she has made so quickly!  

Hugs

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Oh I love learning better Spanish! Here's what this translates to:

Yesterday I went to the vet and he told me that the incision is fine and that he could remove some point next week. I know she has to rest, but sometimes I have to play with her, she barks all the time for me to play.

That's great news! I like that your vet is so good about checking her out to make sure things are going well.  She has so much energy! Of course she needs to get rid of it somehow. Play is good, shorter play times are ideal.

Sally was reading my mind. If you could get some inexpensive rugs (with rubber backing) for your floors it would help her so much. I know it seems like she is handling them OK but we see many dogs get injured when they slip on a shiny floor. You definitely don't want that to happen. The more places with no-slip rugs, the better for her. Like this:

Sure! They may not seem like they're helping right away because she has so much energy, but over the long term they lessen the chance she will slip and get injured. Great job!

I have been playing with Jara, the game of the box, but afterwards she has continued playing the game that she likes the most, which is running.

Oh my gosh she cracks me up! That Jara has sooo much energy. I love that you are playing the box game with her. She seems to really like it!

Check out this blog post about "nosework" (also called "scent games"). It's like taking Jara's box game to a bigger challenge and I'll bet the two of you will have a blast. See:

The link was very interesting, I did not know that there was a national association of smell

I'm glad you checked it out! Yes! It's a worldwide kind of organized activity I believe. My guess is that you can find an association in Espana too! I really think Jara would love searching for treats and scents.

LUCKY DOG! Wow she got the royal treatment today, I'm so jealous!

What is the name of the veterinary clinic and where is it? They appear to do wonderful work. She really enjoyed herself, you can see she is so relaxed!

Would it be OK to make your YouTube videos public so that I can share them to our Tripawds playlist? I believe they are marked "unlisted" which means nobody can see them unless they have a link. Her visit was so good, more people need to see it!
