Loyal readers, friends, clients, and everyone in between (is there anyone in between? I think those are all the same, really!)
Ian and I just wanted to take a second to say THANK YOU for the unbelievable outpouring of love and sympathy and good juju that you have all been sending Tasha. Not a day goes by that I don't get some emails, texts, notes or cards in the mail from one of you wonderful lovelies asking how she is doing, sending your love to her, giving her a big virtual hug, and it means so much to us.
For those of you know know us well and have spent time with Tasha, you know that she is very much a part of our family--in some ways, she IS our family. So to have you let us know that you're thinking of her and wishing her the best recovery ever is so kind--thank you.
Tasha is doing well. She spends about 20 hours a day resting. This is up from her usual 16 hours. She is mostly in her crate and needs to wear a bag around her leg to go outside (which I'm fairly sure she finds humiliating). She enjoys eating peanut butter out of her Kong and we gave her a new bone, but truth be told, is mostly sleeping. Her cast comes off in about 5 weeks and we cannot wait to have our winter and snow loving shepherd back to normal for walks and woods exploration. But in the meantime, we'll just keep petting her and giving her your love.
-Emily, Ian and Tasha
