Yesterday Kayleigh woke up with the right side of her face about twice the size it should be. She went to the vet this afternoon and will be going back for a dental surgery on Monday. She has an abcessed tooth. She had one a couple years ago too. Her teeth are not in great shape. Kayleigh was starved by her first owner and I suspect she chewed on anything and everything she possibly could and that damaged her teeth. She's pretty pathetic right now, moping around and barely eating. Kayleigh usually eats anything offered in seconds!
This is how she spent most of her pre-vet walk. I think the snow felt nice on her face. She did really well at the clinic. Dr. Rick still has all his fingers! No small critters were in the waiting room so there was no difficulty there! And she's even lost the weight Dr. Rick was worried about last time she was in. She's down to a nice healthy 107 pounds!
I was giving my leaders a day off today so I decided to go skijoring. I've done very little of that this winter. I took Deuce for his very first skijor today.
He's a natural! He wasn't in the least bit worried about me being behind him. He really like running on the hard packed part of the trail. He went slower across the lake, but he was still working. I think he'd be a lot of fun on a groomed race trail. I might have to take him to a local race! Plus it would be kinda gratifying to show him off--he is the dog who was almost euthanized due to his energy levels!
Good dogs get treats for their efforts!
