Ugh. This evening was tough. On the plus side, Luna has improved so much that she is now able to get herself into a stand! She can stand on her own if all four feet a flat and she has enough strength. Don't leave her on her own for too long or she'll come crashing down. Thank goodness we practiced our "stay" command before the accident so she knows to stay put when we walk out of a room. She has already tried to follow us and now that she can get into a stand she can really hurt herself if we aren't there to catch her.
On the stressful side, Luna really made a mess of herself this evening. We gave her a sponge bath, but it wasn't enough. That meant we had to carry her up the winding staircase (something I was hoping to avoid for several weeks) and give her a bath. Luckily, we have a walk in shower with enough space for her to lie down in. We also have a shower head that can be detached from the wall which makes bath time a lot easier. However, since all our crummy towels were being used to keep Luna comfy and she peed on them, we didn't have any towels to dry her off. I guess we'll be asking Santa for some new towels to replace our former "good" towels. At least she's safe, clean, and comfy.
Tomorrow morning we are visiting the vet for her first check up after the accident. I am really looking forward to showing the doctor how far she has come in just under two weeks. I think they will be very impressed. I know I am.
Thank you for the continued support, advice, and comments. It really lifts our spirits to read your comments and tell Luna she's got a lot of people (and puppies) out there rooting for her.
