An Update on Juliette

Juliette is slowly improving. She still needs her rest and she has been getting a lot of it. She has a cough and runny nose still. We have been unhooking her IV and letting her outside whenever we can go with her. She has been barking at her favorite squirrel tree, chasing the chickens and helping me in the garden. 
The IV fluids make her cold and she shivers, so we put blankets on her.
She gets pretty tired outside and lays down to rest often. It is really nice to see her outside even if she is just resting.

Yesterday I worked in the garden for hours and she was outside with me the whole time.

We took the IV out on Saturday night. We are keeping our fingers crossed that she wont need a new one for a long time.

Thanks for reading and thank you for all of your nice comments.

Ohhh...what a sweet first pic. I've been lax in my blog reading the last few days and I'm not certain what has happened to your poor pup, so I'm off to read and catch up. Regardless, I'm really glad she's on the mend.
She's also really lucky to have the two of you as parents. :-)
