Norris has learned a new trick

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
apparently he can now hop onto the bed...our bed. the other night i felt soo bad for him since he was having a hard time getting around- he was laying in the floor licking my arm and whining to get in bed with the rest of us- so of course i'm a sucker and i picked him up and put him on the bed with us. he snuggled right up between fosters and colin and went to sleep (they're only allowed on furniture when given premission). this afternoon i guess he figured out how to hop up on there himself - 3 legs and all - he was sitting right in the middle of the bed with his little ears perked up at me and a crooked little doggy smile it was adorable!!! i guess i don't have to worry about him being able to jump now do i?

That's great! He will learn to adjust as time goes by. He sounds like he's fitting in very nicely!

he's doing great and hopping around just fine without that extra leg! he's soooo happy to have that e-collar off and those stitches out! he's such a little bundle of energy!!! (i LOVE high energy doggies) he just stole Fosters rawhide roll a minute ago from him and is now sitting in the floor "killing" it and smacking it with his front paws

Ooh stitches are out? How does it look?

That's great that he can jump up, at least if he sort of lands on your bed akwardly it's nice and soft to land on

he's such a good dog!! i love him to pieces what's really cute is when he plays tug of war with Fosters using their rope toy- they drag each other all over the living room playing- they'll do that for a good 30 minutes at a time it's hilarious because norris hops around like a little hop a long and Fosters just gets sooooooo excited and drags him around -they're both goof balls

it looks good (considering). the vet said all of the hair should grow back by the end of summer/beginning of fall so that's good!

What is Colin's weakness? Beer, red meat??

*waves a big steak in front of him and sends subliminal 'woof woof keep the puppy' messages*

yup. i think that's a good idea i'm going to try my best to persuade him to let me keep him- but if he says no i'm not going to argue with him as he's been incredable about letting me foster/move all my animals into his home. he's such as good guy

with the wife here, and her 2 cats, bringing the total to 4,
i need something larger then a king sized bed.

i wish i understood why the wife seems to think sleeping at a angle in the bed is needed

awww i love itta! she sounds soo much like me sometimes colin gets SOOOOOOOOOOOOO mad at me- no matter how i fall asleep at night -even if it's on my side of the bed- i ALWAYS roll all over him, kick him, steal his covers, and push him 1/2 way off the bed he says that he always pushes me back on my side several times a night- i never even know eithor- i sleep like a rock (apparently i kick the animals off in my sleep too according to Colin)

lol well like i told you once before her excuse was, she just wanted to hug me, and its my fault cause i kept running away.

its all lies, of course. its all part of the master plan to take over the bed.
tell colin just do what i do , when itta runs me out of the bed, i just move to the other side, then the chase can start all over again :P

I hope Norris and the gang (incl. Jasmine -- no more pee/UTI issues, I hope?) are doing well !
I got this email & it reminded me of Norris b/c of the amputation. It's from Only Natural Pet Store, and it's about one of their resident dogs, Crinkles:

Crinkles Lives to Tell the Tale

Crinkles is the alpha female of our office dogs and the canine daughter of our company's president. She loves treats, lounging in her bed with treats and the twin 8 year old boys she lives with (who give her lots of treats.) Just a few weeks ago, Crinkles was hit by a car right outside our offices. She survived, but sadly required amputation of her right hind leg. Crinkles is recovering very well and is learning to rule the roost three-leggedly.

Crinkles is our primary product tester for many of the anxiety formulas that we evaluate. Before meeting our president, she spent two years at an animal rescue. As a result of her "incarceration," she has some issues with neglect, trust, loud noises and other dogs. Not a big fan of toys, Crinkles reviews new treats, bones and raw foods.

Since the accident, she has tried out several of our products for trauma and surgery. We wanted to share some of Crinkles' favorites, as well as a few items that have assisted her recovery.
