After we got home, I started limping worse than before my rehab vet visit. My people couldn't figure out what was wrong. The kept looking at my paw and feeling around in between my pads and on my pads to see if I had stepped on something.
That was Friday and, when it wasn't better by last Monday, I got an appointment at my rehab vet for today. But, last Monday afternoon, my man was trying to do something to me and I put my paw over his arm. When I did that, the light hit it just right and he saw something on the paw pad and behind it that was just a tiny bit different colored. He messed with it and realized it was something stuck on the pad and the fur. It even felt like my paw pad. My woman used some olive oil and got it off. My limp went away over a couple of days and it was decided by the various humans that I could cancel today's appointment.
My leg felt so good, I started going on longer walks, chased some cats, hopped over some stuff, and swam like crazy this weekend!
My people aren't sure what I had on my paw but everyone is glad they were able to find it.
I've been helping my man work on our workshop. We put up insulation and have been stringing wire. He said we're almost ready to put up drywall.
My people ordered me a new bed today. I have some old beds that are really nice but that company got bought out by a big company and the big company stopped making the really nice beds. My beds are still OK but my people said the foam is starting to wear out from the covers being taken off so often now that I've gotten older. The new bed will be the same size as my old beds and they ordered a waterproof liner for it that zips and an extra cover. They are hoping it will be here by the end of the week. They said that if I like it, they'll get me a 2nd one to replace my other old bed.
My woman had ordered me some freeze-dried emu treats from a company in Australia. Turns out there was a problem with the order, even though we got an order confirmation, the payment never processed on their end, so they wanted us to keep placing orders until the payment went through. My woman said no thanks because it took 5 days and 3 tries to get an answer about what was going on with the order. She found them for sale from a pet store in Australia that ships internationally but they said it could take up to 12 weeks to get them because of how Covid-19 is affecting flights.
So she looked and found a place that sells freeze-dried ostrich treats and decided to get me some to see how I like them. I think they're pretty good and it only took a couple of days to get here.
My man has a 5 day weekend coming up! This Friday is his normal Friday off. Then we have the weekend. Monday is Labor Day. Tuesday is a "furlough" day. That means he doesn't get paid but he doesn't have to work either! Then he works 2 days and we have a 3 day weekend!!!
My woman bought me enough rugs from Costco that there is pretty much no bare porch for me to walk on now. With my outside beds, it's pretty comfy.
I found a treasure at one of the schools too. A soccer ball!!!!
