Update on Sassafras

Sassy's been getting Adequan shots twice a week, and it seems to be helping her quite a bit. She has less apparent pain and is taking slightly longer walks. She's perkier. That said, she still winds up getting her two back legs splayed out at right angles after sleeping on hardwood floors and needs assistance now and then to get her legs under her. At such times, she can get kind of frantic and tear at things while trying to stand up. So we still have a ways to go.

She's always been a high-maintenance dog, but as an elderly high-maintenance dog, she's really difficult to care for at times. Still, her temper is mostly sweet and she tries very hard to be a good dog. She's fortunate to be part of the Collins household, which is probably known everywhere on the pet grapevine as The Gravy Train™.
