Usually it is Lottie supporting me when I am poorly with lots of loving cuddles, and lately bless her she has been doing just that because her mummy hasn't been so great. This morning thought great, blue skies Lottie and I can go for a gentle stroll down the local park now the river has finally gone down.. Sadly it was not to be Lottie my beautiful girl is under the weather. Hubby picked her up this morning to put her on the bed for her morning cuddle with her mummy, and she screamed out. Thought oh dear, she has a poorly neck again, a couple of hours later, aware that Lottie was feeling a tad sore picked her up to put her on the floor, because I didn't want her diving off the bed. Lottie screamed again, and didn't want to walk, so it has been a dash to the vets where they diagnosed what I thought, disk problems, a common problem in dachshunds. So Lottie is now on strict bed rest, no walking other than 5 minutes 3 times a day, no jumping, no sofa surfing, no steps. Her exam showed some problems with her reflexes in her back legs, so whilst I am going to miss her daily walks it is for the best. With strict bed rest she will recover, but it will always remain a problem that I need to be aware of. So please send her your healing hugs, as you guys who read my blogs about Lottie and know how much she means to me know how close we are.
Lots of Love Daxiemad
