Shelley was coming on in leaps and bounds. Still nowhere near as well developed as her siblings, her leg had improved to the stage where she had around 90% use of it. She was more than capable of getting herself around, albeit with a pronounced limp. Up until this point, Shelley had only ventured into the garden under our strict supervision and now we decided to try her outside during the day in an ark designed for guinea pigs. We bought her a paddling pool as she had outgrown the various plastic tubs we had been using for her to swim in.
