Well today is day 4 since Sascha had her spleen removed. I’m still awaiting her pathology results from the surgery.
In the interim, let me share the latest. Sascha is back to her crazy self. I didn’t do a post on day 3, but this photo below explains it all.
See the cute German Shepherd with her ball? Look in the bottom right hand corner. See the missing piece of her bed? Well, that’s good ol’ Sascha. I’ve never, ever been able to put a bed in her crate, even the supposedly indestructible ones because she loves to tear them up. She’s also back to eating dog poo, “accidentally” dropping her toy in the pool, just begging me to throw her toy. She also is wolfing down her food like the old days.
Now for the day 4 update. It’s basically the same as day 3, she just seems even more energetic and has her old loud bark back when the UPS guy drives down the street to make a delivery. Tonight I was attempting to eat an apple, which Sascha immediately noticed and started giving me those puppy dog eyes. She then proceeded to lay down, then sit, then lay down, then sit, trying to figure out what she had to do to get a piece of my apple. My Golden Retriever Maggie (12 years old) also noticed Sascha acting like a “Jack-in-the-box” so she too proceeded to lay down, sit up, etc trying to get a piece of my apple.
