Day 5

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

I took Opie to the vet yesterday and they gave me tramadol (spp?).  I think he is doing a little bit better, though he is still just sort of sleeping.  He has wagged his tail a few times and this morning he gave his Pop a giant Opie grin: not a toothy grin like some dogs,but this closed, my mouth is wider than a baby robin sort of grin.

Our house looks like a bomb went off because we have about five attempts at making Opie the most comfortable resting spots ever.  He seems to have settled on the featherbed is most comfortable,but too hot if we get the temp above 62 degrees.  So Joe and I are sporting layers and doing our part to reduce our carbon footprint to boot…that’s our story anyway.  It’s all about the orange dog.

    It’s good to know we aren’t the only people that do whatever it takes to make our goldens happy!
    Peyton is taking Gabapentin, Prednisone and Tramadol, so you can imagine how sleepy he is. He is still with us and very comfortable so that is the important part. Keep Opie comfortable and happy as long as you can!

    Give it another week, then you’ll see more grins! We had makeshift beds over our house too. We got eggcrate mattress pads from Target, folded them in half and covered them with old blankets or towels. It’s nice to have a place to rest no matter where you are!

    And good for Opie for turning you more green! haha
