Slipping and Sliding

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:19 am by Karma

Most of you know that we recommend putting flooring down on hard surfaces to allow our tripawds to gain better traction and aid their getting around.  And some of you know that my particular tripawd, Adelaide, actually prefers to slide… on purpose.  Yep, that’s right.  She does a couple hops and then slides her one front paw across the floor.  I keep trying to catch her doing this on video.  But once I have a camera ready, she just looks at me funny.

Well, again, I did not have a camera.  However, I wanted to share a funny story from this morning.  I was getting both Adelaide and Maggie May ready for daycare, and had put their leashes on.  We were in the dining room, and here comes Adelaide hopping along.  She stepped on her leash and slid a good 3 feet.  And you could tell it was on purpose.  Then she turned around and went back to the kitchen a little ways, made a U-turn, and came back toward Maggie May and I and hopped her way up to where she firmly planted her front paw on Maggie May’s leash and then slid another good 3 feet.  OMG!  On purpose!  I know many of you won’t believe me.  But I swear, she loves to slide.  And I am going to catch her someday on video.  I don’t know how, but it’s just too dang cute.

Anyways, that’s our story.  Wish y’all could see it.
