Fun on Monday

I continue to enjoy the brief windows of time when Shyla seems like herself. We play games on the deck. We are not able to let her off leash anyplace else because she might get confused and lost.

On the deck, I tossed her a cheese cube. It looks as if she's tracking it perfectly.

Imagine her horror when she missed! Her expression is priceless, in my opinion.
During her good phases, she's quite capable of this sort of game. The next one was a success.

She balanced the cheese on her nose and awaited my release word so that she could toss it.

A small toss...

The snarf...

And enjoying the taste of cheese and of victory!
Aside from these windows of time when Shyla's usual self shines through, we're not yet seeing any reduction in the side effects from the phenobarbital. We are now on Day 10 so we are more than halfway to the point where our vet says that she will improve.

I love this girl, and I can't wait to have her full spirit back all the time!

  8. Oh My I missed it!!! The expression, so funny. But then success, so improvement must be slow, just having to wait is so hard. It will happen, as sure as the day's sun rises. XXX

  13. If I remember correctly, Ciara's neurologist told us the symptoms could minimize very quickly and not just as a gradual diminishing. Hope this is the case and that the change comes very soon for Shyla.

  20. Wow, I just read backwards to find out what was going on with Shyla; I don't have much daytime internet access anymore, so I'm behind on everything. I'm so glad you have such a wonderful medical team and that you're trying to keep your spirits up through all this. I hope she continues to improve and that life will get back to normal for both of you soon. LOVED your bobcat, and you've captured some of the incredible later winter sunsets I often get to see only from a tall building downtown, which isn't nearly as picturesque. Thanks for preserving them!
