Here are some pictures of Maggie that I took today. Poor girl, she is getting really tired of having her splint on. I thought, by now, she would be driving us all nutty with pent up energy, but she spends her days being mopey and sad. She cannot run and play like she usually does and the only time she leaves the house and yard is to go to the vet to get her splint changed. I am hoping that it will only be about 3 more weeks until the splint can come off. It is very strange to have a Mopey Maggie in the house - she is usually full of energy and spunk.
You can't tell from the pictures, but Maggie is looking quite skinny. Her weight has stayed the same, but with no exercise for nearly 6 weeks, she has lost a bit of muscle and her Big Berner Butt is not so big. Maggie is not a large Bernese to begin with (only 75 pounds) so that loss of muscle tone is very noticeable.
Maggie gives some effort to play, but it has been a while since she has body checked Bosley and pinned him to the ground.
