Lilly’s Brain Injury and Agility Outtakes

Monday, we showed you some agility highlights as Lilly recovers from her neurological troubles. Today, we prove that it isn’t always pretty.

We think the video tells the whole story. Plus, it’s late, and we’re tired.

Even though she’s not back to her old self, it was still pretty impressive, especially considering what she’s been through.

I think it’s great that she’s still willing to try to do it all! That might be a sign that she’s feeling more comfortable in her own fur. I’m so glad she’s still able to be with you and work on doing what she loves!

Lilly is a star, as are you! I appreciate that you document and you share your journey with Lilly. As someone who used to counsel parents of children with brain and neurological impact, these videos are fascinating. How you encourage with your voice, how Lilly protects herself AND looks to you for confirmation. I check for updates every day and am inspired by the connection and the lessons for me as your story unfolds.

You know, that’s still pretty good considering what you both have been thru!

So its really been just a little over two months that Lilly suffered this major brain catastrophe and it seems to me that you are asking a lot of her! Why not give her a month, allowing her to get back slowly, do the exercises when she is well rested and ready to do. You could tell by Monday’s video, she was really happy to be out and doing. But in recovery, everytime just won’t be perfect.

Hi Y”all,

Don’t worry…that’s what happens to us humans when we get old or even undergo anesthesia…we have trouble coordinating or even remembering how to do simple things.

I think she’s doing amazing…plus she may not feel quite “up to par” and tire much easier. She’s come so far! From wobbling to slow weaving.

Oh, she’s still just so sweet! Her tail is going (even though it means “I’m unsure” sometimes), and she went through the weaves and looked at you like “I’m a rock star, right?”

Lilly is a rock star.

I am impressed. She knew that second jump did something to her and she was not going to let it do it again.

Awwwe! I think Lilly did amazing! Imagine, she is still here to do this with you! 🙂
