Took a couple of weeks off… mostly to ‘burn’ some use-it-or-lose-it vacation time. Spent lots of time with Basty; walks (carry’s) at Elgin Trail. Need to ‘sock’ his back feet these days; prevent sores from dragging his feet. He has lost a lot of weight over the past couple of months; from 17 down to 12.5 pounds. Weight loss is part of CHF; his is exacerbated by lower spine neurological issues, all leading to muscle atrophy in his haunches.
At any rate, I definitely don’t mind carrying him when he tires. He is Basty, after all 😉
