Nail Day

I had "big" plans for today - that is big for someone with a bum hand.  I thought we could get in some training, but I find we are limited to things where I can spit treats.  Right hand does nothing, left hand operates clicker and mouth spits treats.  So we worked on a few things.  Gimme reeeeeeally wants her Mom back to normal. 

Also thought we'd get to go walking with Mary and Grafton, but by the time Mary got off work, I was having problems with feeling light-headed - so I clearly couldn't drive.  They warned me at the hospital after my surgery that I would need to drink a LOT more healthy fluids than usual.  It seems your body uses up all the water it can to flush out toxins from the drugs, so you are more likely to get dehydrated.  I feel like I am constantly drinking flavored water or koolaid, but it is still not enough.  <sigh>  At least everything else is going well and I feel fine.

One thing I am determined to do is get Gimme's front nails back to normal.  The parrot-toes look has got to go.  I won't be able to do anything about her back feet until I am two-handed again, but I can work on her front feet using the nail board.  My plan is to do her nails every other day.

I talked about this in a blog entry in January 2013:   Doing Nails

and then in February another entry with a video:   Doing Nails Video

I should mention, in the first blog I talk about putting the 3M tread on my front stairs in hopes her nails would be filed in the course of her coming and going through the front door.  I did put it down last summer and sadly, it doesn't appear to file her nails at all.  Plus I notice it is pealing up at the edges.
