|No more sadness in Jasmine's face|
It's been quite a task, because she wants to do what she normally would.
She seems to be feeling good; we were able to stop the Tramadol all together, and she's now on a 1/4 prednisone every other day until we run out.
On Saturday she even got to go to the horse farm again.
Did that ever make her happy! I tagged along to chaperone and was that ever needed! She is ready to rumble; at least she thinks she is.
This also gave us opportunity to shoot some pictures of Jasmine's new ramp.
We've had a ramp for getting in and out of the house ever since Jasmine's first knee surgery. But now we needed one for getting safely in and out of the bus too. Jasmine got comfortable with it; she'll accept anything that gets her places.
Hubby built it all by himself.
In our experience, dogs and ramps get along quite well, even though our first attempt to make a ramp for getting in and out of a vehicle failed miserably - the ramp was too narrow and too short, which made the incline too steep. Jasmine didn't like it and neither did I. Didn't feel safe to either of us.
So this time we made sure it is wide enough, and long enough.
Easier to do now too. The bus has a enough room for a huge ramp, our previous vehicle did not. I actually found a place which does sell ramps that look good, come in large enough sizes and fold in half. But making one was cheaper, and more importantly, faster.
Price was not on Jasmine's list of required criteria but speed certainly was.
