Little Lady Godiva was carrying around her little teddy bear stuffie last night and this morning she went after her frog stuffie and was squeaking it to her little hearts content!
Normally, when I'm on a global conference call i confine myself to a room without any squeekie stuffies and the girls generally know that when I'm on the phone to not make any noise...but today...Godiva didnt care how much squeaky noise she was making and frankly, neither did I. I figured that as long as she is following me around the apartment squeaking a stuffie non stop, than that means that she is not sad, feeling ill, or having a seizure. So i left my phone on mute until i had to speak and them put it back on mute right after :p
Last night Truffle and Godiva were both under the covers...i was wondering how close they were to each other and when i lifted up the covers, this is what i saw:They were cuddled together and just like before Godiva got sick...they were cuddled together with Godiva's arm over Truffle. Just like old times :)
So here is where the "almost" back to normal part is - Godiva still will not play with Truffle or Coco Bean. she will show interest in a toy that Coco Bean has but seems to recognise that she is not ready yet for Trufle's roughness (Truffle is 8 pounds of solid muscle and not an ounce of fat to her body no matter how much i feed her. Truffle is built like a little Tonka truck). Godiva did however go bouncing after Truffle this morning doing her play growl but Truffle was more interested in getting to the kitchen to have her morning potty-pad break and Godiva couldn't keep up with Truffle.
Godiva does not run anymore. she walks surprisingly fast (always has) but her little back legs seem a little stiff or are looking bow-legged (hard to tell which cause she moves so fast). But she cannot run like she used to; she hops like a bunny rabbit now when she tries to run which is really cute. she used to do this a lot as a puppy but stopped when she was about 1 and a half years old. She was SUCH a fast runner - much faster than Truffle and Coco Bean. Godiva was like a little torpedo when she ran. i'm hoping that she will have the motor skills to run like that again, but if not, than i will just have a super cute bouncing Chihuahua...kinda like a little mexican jumping bean!
I know you all miss posts from Coco Bean and are most likely tired of hearing about all this, but i want you to know that i really do appreciate all your kind words, prayers, thoughts, suggestions and for putting up with my questions and concerns.
The truth is, you all are the only ones i can go to for resources that i can blindly trust. yes, i can call the vet (and i do), but hearing from all of you has helped me so much more than you can imagine.
I promise that i will give the blog back to my Chihuahua Mafia soon and i truly hope that i dont lose any of you as followers and friends while i use The Girls blog to update you all on the progress of my Chi-Mafia.
Hugs and <3 to you all,
