Bailey had a recheck with the vet that did her dental and nose stuff. I really, really like this vet and have used her for "non-routine" things in the past. Super down to earth, super friendly, and knowledgeable. I didn't need to go to the appointment with my mom and Bailey, but I wanted to. First, I swear Bailey has turned back time. She looks younger than she did last time I saw her! She's moving better, she's more muscled, and well... she can hear again. During her dental/nose stuff they checked her ears and found wax plugs... uhhh...?! They were able to remove/dislodge/whatever you do with those and now Bailey has a significant amount of hearing back. So very odd! Second, I seriously can't get over how much Clonidine improves her ability to not just cope with, but enjoy life. She worked the vet and tech over at her appointment so thoroughly I had to ask if this was really my dog?! Then we went to my work so she could get her post-dental adjustment where she just wagged her tail the whole time our just-learning-spinal-manipulation vet felt her neck a bajillion times. And then she chin targeted her beloved Dr. T (repeatedly, just in case Dr. T was ignoring her on purpose or something), because what dog doesn't love Dr. T? Third, I am so relieved that my dog is so happy and so healthy. I couldn't have asked for anything better when I asked my mom if she would be willing to let Bailey live with her permanently. My heart is so happy today.
