This was the first time i was able to walk dad since he had a hip replacement (20 days ago), we had to take basset steps, small steps and short sniffs. i’ve moved my blanket to beside his lift chair so he can easily reach down and do his rub and scratch therapy. i sleep beside him at night just so i can keep an eye on him, the good news is he can now reach my treat cabinet and let me outside at all hours. the warden is hovering around and making special treats for dad, forgetting all about his lifestyle choices, at least for awhile.

Try using your feet to give yourself a belly rub while sleeping! #deantips
It’s gonna be a biscuit burying and nap day for two reasons, first because it’s going to rain all day, secondly, we just finished a busy long weekend with my brother being home. the conditions are perfect for napping with the pitter patter sounds of rain, and you know one thing is for sure, i’m not going outside again today. i was coaxed out earlier this morning with the promise of a treat, it worked.
