Jim and I just took Bella out for a short walk to the park and back. She's not her normally bouncy self yet, but she's moving much better. She can make it up a few stairs without any help, and she doesn't struggle to get up after she's been lying down and asleep for a while. Yesterday, she was quite stiff, and just standing for any length of time was an effort.

She's also much more interested in what's going on around her. While on the walk, she wandered into a neighbour's open garage to look around and then came trotting (trotting!) back to me when I called her. Things are looking up.

Jim and the boys are going up to the cottage tomorrow. I think I'll stay here with Bella for another day and see how she does, and then maybe drive up with her on Monday. The hill from the cottage down to the lake is quite steep in places, so I want her to be mobile enough to tackle it and pain-free enough to be carried up if she gets tired. I'll also bring her lifejacket so that she can go swimming without over-exerting herself.
