An update on Charli....
The good news is that the swelling on Charli's face is subsided and the burn on her neck is healing nicely. I have kept her paws in gauze dressings which has helped. They are now off and she doesn't seem to be scratching any more.
The bad news is that this is the third night no one in our house hold has had any rest. Charli has worked her self up into quite a state and this morning we are having a windy day which isn't helping at all. For three days she has been pacing up and down the hall, hiding in the closet, under the bed, whimpering, bumping into walls, and falling off of furniture because she is half asleep. Night time is the worse! Once before, when she had gotten herself upset like this, we tried medication but it only seems to make matters worse. She is a highly anxious pup and this is usually something she has to work out on her own. We have no idea how long this latest episode will last. All we can do is hold her, sit by her, tell her we love her, and reassure her that she is OK. I took these pictures this morning and as you can see she is so tired that she is literally falling asleep on the chair.
The groomer did call me back yesterday and apparently one of her helpers groomed Charli. She said he has never had any problems in the past. She did offer to pay any medical expenses we might incur and also give Charli a free grooming next time she is due. I thought it was nice of her to offer but I still won't take Charli back there again. The one thing she did said that bothered me was, "Charli can never come here on a Saturday again. We are very busy and you know how she is." It was almost as if she were implying that it was Charli's fault that this happened, and not hers, or her staff. I don't know. I'm just glad Charli is on the mend and hopefully she will settle down soon.
Well, I'm falling asleep at my computer so I am going to sign off. I will slowly be making my way around to visit with all of you. Thank you again for all of your lovely comments, advice, and tips. I really do appreciated it.
Charli is sending hugs to all of you.
I hope you are having a bright and sunny day ♥
With warmest regards, Carol
