So we went up to the big DP this morning with daughter and her mini doodle. 40 acres of trails, a river to swim and fetch from, woods, tall grass fields (although the grass wasn't very tall or green). HK was thrilled when we pulled into the parking lot for the first time since last fall. She didn't stop running for more than 30 seconds the whole time we were there, which was a definite increase in activity. She probably spent a half hour fetching balls or sticks from the river, something the minidoodle wants nothing to do with until HK is back near the shore and then she wants to greet her. When it came time to leave, everything was still great, she jumped right into the car, and out when we got home.
I took a half hour nap, as did HK. Then she would not put any weight on her left rear leg. Won't even put it down on the floor. I have been all over her foot, can't find anything in the pads, or in between. She lets me probe here whole leg. I can not get a reaction of discomfort or pain from her. Its been almost 3 hours now and no change. She still hops up to go out when she thinks I am going outside, but she is a three legged dog. So, I am changing my plans for theevening and staying home with her. I hope it is a sprain or strain of some kind and will heel up. If she doesn't improve by Monday, she will be off to the vet.

Do you want me to tell you what it is or do you want a bit of peace of mind before the vet confirms it?

Sure hope HK just strained her leg. Sending her good thoughts.
sending good thoughts it's nothing and heels up on it's own.

Sending good thoughts it is nothing serious and has nothing to do with his previous injury. My fingers are crossed for a simple injury.
Life is short, play with your dogs!

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
Good thought and prayers coming from Simon and I!

~It doesn't matter how smart the dog is,it matters how smart the owner is.
Uh oh....those symptoms sound eerily familiar to me.
Good thoughts for Hershey girl!
