Well YAY! YAY! YAY! That corner is far behind you and there’s no looking back for Bella!
You’re doing everything right. Taking it slow and on her schedule, trying brain games and keeping her mind occupied so her body heals is paying off. Until the games arrive you can try a few easy DIY recovery games with objects from around the house. See if those help keep her busy.

ESTATIC!! SOOOOO HAPPY TO HEAR THIS!!! I love that she actually enjoys her harness and the assistance you give her. Sweeeet.
Aybe….just maybe…..this means the other leg isn’t too big of an issue for now??? Mayabe, just, aybe, that means you can delay at least another week, ,aybe two??
Are you comfortable with this Vet’s assessment or did you feel like you wanted another opinion? I know you feel like you’re between a rock and a hard place. IF the bolt mist be done, I jnownuou want to have as much time between this surgery and recovery as possible. And…you don’t want to risk a fracture of the other leg. Ugh!!
Today though, it’s all about celebrating these wonderful strides shania making! Quite a Warrior, a strong Tripawd Warrior!! And you are her Warrior Hooman!! Good job!!
