Oh my, it's been a full week since my last post. Her paw is doing great now - the skin on the bottom of the paw pad did dry out and flake off significantly (about half of the pad) but the new skin underneath has toughened up and she is walking normally. There is still a fair amount of scarring on the sides of her paw from bandage wear but nothing that bothers her anymore.
Louise was in the office today and I caught her making the most of it. If she wasn't doing 'food inspections' for the receptionist then she was goofing around with anyone else who would pay attention to her.
Our mid-day walk was not to exciting places like Science World or Olympic Village. Instead we headed into the quieter streets near the office, mostly filled with light industrial buildings that hold breweries, body shops and the like. It means less traffic and for me, a quieter walk. It's usually the short walk of the day for her so she likes to make the most of it. I was trying to get a picture of Louise looking up at me as she walks but this was the best I could do. I take what I can get, I guess.
On the weekend we managed to get out in the sunshine a few times and walk along the sea wall. This last shot is close to Beach Avenue, which is only a few blocks from our place. Louise was leading the way on this walk as I had to wear dark sunglasses. I had scratched my eye on an earlier walk and it was still pretty inflamed at the time. Later that day I headed to the doctor and he bandaged me up pirate style. A few days later and I was healed. Hopefully this ends our string of doctor visits, at least for a while.
