Rio is definitely starting to get her old “rock head” back. We had been limiting the climbs to the second floor to when she was wearing her harness and could be assisted up the steps, but yesterday she decided she was tired of not going upstairs when she felt like it. Not only did she climb the stairs unassisted and without any permission at all, she did it twice. I think she thought maybe her dad had food up there that he wanted to share with her. She also went walkabout in the yard and ran up the driveway a couple of times (our driveway is about 300 feet long) to “greet” the neighbors. Today, we played a little ball outside with Tosca and Zephyr… I have to remember to throw low for Rio, because she is used to leaping up for the ball, and she’s fallen a couple of times trying to jump since the surgery. We’re both learning what she’s capable of, but she seems to want to go at a little faster pace than me! She is definitely a tough old bird!
