I came home to this today. I’m pretty sure that bed rest does not include dumpster diving.
She’s supposed to be crated, and that would certainly give her the best recovery odds. She totally freaks out when crated alone, though. Screaming and thrashing around and basically acting hysterical. Definitely not what you want a dog with a spinal injury doing. So I’m doing my best to keep her quiet while I’m at work, but it isn’t a perfect situation, and today she was feeling chipper and bored enough to get into the trash.
So. On the one hand, I want to cry, because this dog is determined to break herself. On the other hand, I have to laugh, because of COURSE she got in the trash.
