We are off on a road trip

Thank you all for your comments and support re Cameh’s back issues.  We are just taking it one day at a time and actually often one hour at a time.  Yesterday we put her on the sofa in the RV and penned her in and she relaxed and fell into a deep sleep.  I was able to keep icing her as I put things away.  I can see that we will have a huge challenge on this trip as one of us needs to be watching her constantly.  Once we are stopped and can put the slide out we can set up the pen and she will be contained with no chance of crawling or falling.

A very special thank you to Lynne who came up with a brilliant suggestion. http://www.handicappedpetscanada.com/walkin-wheels-mini/  This wheelchair cart is so flexible and can be used for rehabilitation.  Our vet wants us to wait a while till we see how much Carmeh recovers plus the stress of the cart would be too much right now.  We also want her to stay as quiet as possible.

Caeli is such a good sister hanging around outside the pen.  She certainly senses that something has changed.

The weather doesn't look too good for photography so Colin is leaving with no guilt for all his waiting clients.

This is the proposed trip with a 2 night stay in BAnff and then back home.  We shall see how things going before traveling further than Edmonton.

This is the proposed 16 day trip with the last stop being a 3 night stay in Banff and then back home. We shall see how things are going with Carmeh before traveling further than Edmonton. Each white dot is an overnight or several night stop.

Today we are traveling about 485km/310 miles.

We can only hope that the geese don't take over our lawn while we are away.

    You are all much happier when you are out travelling. Carmeh will sense that as well and be more relaxed.

    Have a great road trip. At least you are all together!

  4. Have a safe and productive trip.

  5. Looks like you have a good route planned. I am sure it will be nice to rediscover part of Canada for a change. Hoping that Carmeh settles down and starts to feel better.

    I am so very sorry for the doggie health issues… you guys take such good café of them both. It is sad and stressfull and hope things get better really soon…. Luci does well with acupuncture and chiropractic treatments when she has her ‘issues’ but they are not as bad as yours, she never has lost movement ability…
