Well the "ouie" healed, but took months! During the winter small things were done on the inside. Did a lot of searching for cushions and a couch for the back. Ended up with a klick klack sofa/bed, which is working out fine for now. So last weekend we took Ruth out for her first time. She handled like a dream. We only went about 50 miles from home, close enough where we could call the Son In Law to come get us if we needed him! Here are some pics of Ruth.
