Today, Quinta and I went on our “regular” walk around our neighborhood — in Quinta’s new buggy! Since he got home, Quinta has been a little hesitant about going outside. He was, however, happy to get into his new buggy and to go for a ride on our regular route.
We went to visit the lady at our neighborhood dry cleaning store. She and her husband are very fond of Quinta and Quinta loves to stop by the store because he knows that he will get treats! He had not visited since his surgery. I called the cleaning store lady before we headed over to let her know that we were coming, and she was waiting outside the store. She was so happy to see Quinta and cried, knowing what a brave dog he has been throughout his surgery and his recovery. Of course, she was all ready with the treats!
We are all trying to make sure that Quinta has as “normal” a life as possible — as close to the life we had before his surgery. If he cannot walk on our regular route, we can do so together if he rides the buggy. He can then visit with the same friends he used to visit and meet new friends and just enjoy being outside like any dog would.
Dogs in buggies are not a common sight, at least where I live, so there were some people who stared at us as if I were a crazy woman. That did not bother me the least — so long as Quinta was having a great time!
