Shyla's first phenobarbital pill was yesterday morning. She's not allowed to mountain bike with me for up to 2 weeks after this first pill because she can't be off-leash. She'll be "drunk" so getting lost or hurt is an issue. So, yesterday morning, we got up early to get in a fun ride before the first pill. I love having her company on my bike rides. It makes them so much more fun!
She did a serious leap at one point in our ride. I adore seeing her FLY!
As we finished our ride, I looked up and saw an intense Sun Dog. Sun Dogs occur when there's a lot of moisture in a cloud so the sun going through it produces the colors of the rainbow. Actually, I'd prefer just to view it as a good luck charm!
At the appointed time, I gave Shyla her first pill of phenobarb. After that, she had a quiet day. She wants to be in contact with me or R at all times so I know that she's feeling a little off. However, she appears to be walking pretty well so perhaps the clumsiness won't be too bad for her. At this point, I'm a little hopeful that she won't get the terrible side effects that I've been warned about.
She's spent most of the afternoon like this.
A whole two weeks of photos of Shyla looking stoned or sleeping might get a little boring!
