Mom and Dad celebrated their 4th wedding anniversary. Without me. Away from the house. Therefore, I have nothing else to say about Friday.
Aside from publishing the Bath/Grooming Contest Entries (go check it out and vote if you haven’t already), Mom took me to the flea market. I had a blast seeing everyone.
When we got home, Mom noticed that Franklin was starting to make attempts to walk. Unfortunately, it seemed that Franklin’s little legs couldn’t hold up the weight of her body. I heard Mom call Dad and tell him that she thought Franklin’s muscles might be atrophied from just sitting for the last 2 1/2 weeks.
After a bit of research, Mom found the perfect solution – a duck walker/wheelchair!
That evening Mom and Dad went to buy the supplies. Unfortunately, they were so exhausted when they got home that all the parts sat in bag on the counter.
Mom was super anxious to get Franklin’s walker built but Dad had some things to take care of. So while Mom waited, she kept busy with Macy and me.
Annoying little sister fact: Macy likes to drag me around by my collar. Mom thought that if she took my collar off, it would stop Macy.
Annoying little sister fact: It didn’t. She dragged me by my neck.
No amount of redirecting her bad behavior has worked. It may have something to do with Mom’s research. Macy may be a Catahoula mix. A herding dog. Who clearly is trying to herd me…somewhere. She is also very mouthy and has those icy blue eyes – both Catahoula characteristics. Better than a Great Dane, I suppose.
We spent some time outside since the weather was semi-decent: not too hot and not raining.
Later in the afternoon, Dad was ready to make Franklin’s walker:
And, finally, the moment of truth:
TA-DA!!!!!!!!!!!! She’s mobile again (somewhat)! She’s just getting used to it and it’s going to take some time for her legs to be strong enough to pull her around. Mom will take video to show you.
I’m keeping my paws crossed that she will be walking by this coming weekend.
