It’s the morning of Day 4, but I didn’t recap yesterday’s acheivements. Things are going well. Poko is moving around a little more. He’s happy to go outside, sniff around, and do his business. I was worried about how he was going to do, but he figured things out easily, although he needed to be off leash for #2.
I put out a couple extra floor mats, because the transition between carpet and hardwood is a little tricky. Poko does fine on either, but it’s hard to go from carpet to hardwood.
I’m still sleeping on the couch and Poko wakes up to go outside once in the night. He wakes a couple of times to reposition himself and sometimes has a little trouble laying down again. Seems like he turns in the wrong direction, and can’t break the habit. So I try to help him out by telling him sit, and then down, rather than tucking his bum under.
I haven’t been making him do anything for his treats the last few days (usually it’s sit, shake a paw, down, etc), but yesterday while waiting for his treat, he sat down on his own 🙂 He’s wagging his tail when I get home, and the bruising is improving quickly. In a week he’ll look a lot better! Just wait til the hair comes back!
Thanks to everyone for the calls, emails, and well wishes!
Mira and Poko
