    Ugh…time for bed. Old border collie got her arthritis meds and her trip outside to bark at the neighbor’s fighting roosters and say goodnight to the dogs on the other side of the lake. She’ll go into the bedroom and sleep on her towel-designated space at the foot of the bed on wife’s side. Cheesy will burrow into the couch and I’ll have to escort Lucky to his towel-deliniated space on my side of the bed. Ig I don’t escort him the Border Collie will growl and grumble when he tries to enter and keep him stuck in the doorway where he’ll wimper until I do escort him in.
    I’ll call BD to come in where she has a towel-deliniated space by the french doors. If she comes she’ll stay all night…but if she doesn’t that means that at some point she’ll walk thru the living room to the dining room, away from our bedroom, and bark at the french doors in the dining room until I call her to the bedroom. I have to escort her thru the bedroom past the Collie – she doesn’t grumble at BD as she has her trained – and take her to her towel. In either scenario we have the ‘towel ritual’ where she waits at the edge until I point to it and invite her on to it. Then she turns around three times and sits – she won’t lay down until I past her on the head and say ‘good girl’.
    And we wonder why some people will cross the street rather than walk on the same side we are on.

      Welcome to the Hotel Czardoggie Spa……guess being towel boy to a herd of canine non paying guests with lot a stubborn peculiarities is somehow rewarding….for me, I too spend a LOT of effort washing and drying towels used for bed and sofa covers, and for mud cleaning, and for rain drying off, and for bath times…..if it was not that somehow they make me laugh and take my mind off the pain of an impending and needed hip joint replacement, maybe I would just love on a bottle of Aleve and have no importance to DoggityDay Special Times.

      Czar, you do it, because you do it….like raking leaves, killing weeds, cutting up felled limbs, and filling in potholes in the yard…..

      Heck….it’s the American Way…love of pets….

      So far, my animals have never opted for alternative gender identification, joined a protest march against discrimination or bigotry or even woofed that I am a racistsorta human that allows my Human White Privilege to knock down on the kibble volume and restrict the treat supply and rant at them for eating poop and wallowing in carrion….

      Dogs…can’t live with em, can’t live without em.

        Joshua, my DH has had both hips replaced. He could barely walk, at times could not stand up, and could not walk up stairs. He is sooo happy it was done! He can do all those things now, and without the constant pain of bone wearing away bone. For the 1st hip he was in the hospital for 2 days, for the 2nd he was in for 1 day. Two days was actually OK. I would have liked 2 days for 2nd hip, but he wanted out, and knew the routine. Having a hip replaced was easier than “open” rotator cuff surgery for him, and from what I hear much easier than knee surgery.

        We both went to a 4 hour long class at the hospital before surgery to learn what goes on at the hospital, and about home “care” – which was lousy and we did not have the second time. I took care of him. You’ll be happy when it’s done. Every single person we have talked to that’s had it done is happy they did.

        Two thoughts 1. Get a surgeon that all he does is hips, and a lot of them. 2. Never have both hips done at once. I don’t know if anyone still does this, but it’s bad to do.

          thanks so much….the doc I am considering does the newer “anterior” eg front of leg incision which is supposed to be less invasive and has a lot of experience with hip replacement as a speciality. but I have another group that did the hip joint of another buddy of mine and I am watching his recovery time.

          I am eager for the relief, but not excited about becoming “walker” dependent for the time…have lots of stairs at my houses, etc….but, it is what it is…thanks so much for the encourgement….

        So far my dogs have bitten me far fewer times than friends have…and my dogs have better guest-manners too.

        joshua, I’ve had both hips replaced, and both hips repaired a year later, so 4 hip surgeries in all. It’s a piece of cake! You’ll be soo glad you did it, and sorry you waited so long. My take on it: the anterior approach is easier to recover from than the lateral/posterior approach (cuts less muscle). If they offer you the GameBoy (a garment that circulates ice water around the hip and thigh, like major league pitchers wear after a game) absolutely take it, it helps a lot to reduce swelling. DO THE PHYSICAL THERAPY afterward. Essential. You’ll be good as new in a few weeks. Let us know when you are going under the knife, ok? Good luck!

          Thanks so much for the comments…the anterior deal is what I am considering most, and I remember when wife had knee replacement that the therapy was the tough part, but absolutely essential…understand that hip joint is no where as tough regards therapy exercise as the knee.

            That’s true. Tundra Dad, the retired dentist, has had one hip and both knees replaced, and he says knees are by far the worst.

      Ok you made me LOL with all of that – much of which I recognize from personal experience with four-legged family members.

      They have you well-trained, and I know they’re grateful for your cooperation.

      Czarina goes to bed about 10:30. She says, “who’s coming?” Then closes the door, puts on her eye mask & skips all the folderol.
