Take a Walkie Tuesday

Finally, the snow and ice have melted. I watched out the window as it slowly went away. My Grete dog has been recovering now from her last elbow surgery 4 weeks ago. She has been going stir crazy with her healing process, especially when you think that her first surgery was Oct. 1st. She has not been able to cut loose and play for a long time. She knows that there have been many kitties purring for her speedy recovery so she wants everyone to know how she is doing.
Grete: Yay, I can go out for short walkies now! The Dr. didn't want me trying it in the ice and snow so I had to wait until the street was clear! Here we are starting on our walk to Starbucks! I don't really want coffee, but I'm happy to go along and help.

Grete: Here I am waiting patiently for my dad to come out with stuff.

Grete: Do I really have to wear this gentle leader? I promise I'll be good! I can hardly wait until I get to go back to the dog park! It should only be a short wait now, maybe just a couple of more weeks!
Cory: I admit to playing chase in the house with Grete just a few times, but this time her elbow did not swell up.

Grete, we are so happy to hear you are healing well! We love that last photo of you, even though you have that strappy thingy on your face!

Did we ever tell you that you actually look a lot like a dog Mom use to have? She was actually a small dog, and her name was... are you ready for this?... Gretta. Seriously.

Lookin' good, Grete! I am glad you can go for walks now! Do you eat whipped cream at Starbucks? My bean, Rachel, works at Starbucks and loves giving the doggies little treats of whipped cream!
