My sweet 10-year old Lab mix Speedy is getting a new knee today. It was a hard decision for me whether or not to do the surgery, but she really needs it, and we are fortunate to be able to get this done for her. She is at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists and will come home tomorrow. I am eagerly awaiting the call that she is through her surgery. She is going to have about 8 weeks of rehab, where she will not be able to run or bolt around the yard. That will be the hardest part for me, her, and her dog sister Mazie, who is currently aimlessly walking around wondering where Speedy is.
To prepare for her post-op care I wanted to give her more traction while walking around, so I laid down a bunch of rag rugs that I had hoarded in my attic. (I guess hoarding paid off in this case). Here are some pictures of our new eclectic flooring situation. I am borrowing a baby gate from a friend so that I can confine her to her new rag rug palace when she gets home tomorrow.
