My first walk/run participation
Saturday, May 07, 2011
On a whim I signed up for Portland's 2011 Doggie Dash - a walk/run that benefits the Humane Society, and the good work they do for the animals. Unfortunately my poor Sophie's feet are not up to participating with me - she's on a very aggressive regimen of steroids & antibiotics to try to clear up a horrible bacterial infection on all 4 paws. Poor baby. Twice a day I have to bathe her feet, put on an antibacterial cream, and then put on leather boots so she can walk without pain. The first time I bathed her feet I found out that I had stretched some thigh muscles I didn't know I had!!! Sophie was walking much better in her little boots and I was barely able to walk at all!! LOL. But I stretched them out again . that evening, and again the next morning. . . I guess eventually I will be limber enough to do this without discomfort. . . so in a way I'm getting a good stretch-out (is that a word?). I've got at least 10 more days of doing this stretch & crawl. . . I will post some photos of Sophie in her cute little boots.
