I am having to admit that Hayliegh isn’t able to get around as she once did. I am accepting of life , the change in her and her ability to do as she once did. Problem is, I did not train her to ever be alone and I feel bad about that. I shared this w/ my vet and he said “Kim if I could have my dog w/ me 24/7 I would have done the same.” Okay, I don’t have to feel guilty, but I do feel frustrated that I didn’t train her to stay home for an hour or two, so I could get things done.
At this point I have been carrying her and she gets heavy after a few minutes. Having nerve damage, fibro and arthritis it gets hard. I have thought about a child stroller, but how do I use a child stroller and shop for food? Plus she isn’t going to like the stroller I just know her. I do have a neighbor Jeanine who has helped a little in the past. She is usually home all day and enjoys the company. I don’t want to feel like I am taking advantage of her. I have offered to pay or give her something and she absolutely doesn’t want me to. Maybe since I help lots of people it is Gods way of giving back to me?
I do know I will train the next pup that God blesses me w/.
When I look at her I see so much love, I see how tired she is. Today as I have done in the past is if she is on the couch or floor I go right up to her hold her or look into her eyes and share w/ her how much I love her. If I am repeating myself I guess love is redundant.
Hayliegh says take it easy and be gentle on your self. WOOF!
