Jasper loves playing with footballs ! He usually punctures them so that thye are easier to carry.
Tonight, somebody had left a rugby ball in the field and Ralph - another Lab was playing with it.
See Jasper's eyes light up. For twenty minutes he was in his element even barking at Ralph when he tried to recover the ball from Jasper.
Then came the collision ! From the sound I thought that something was broken or at least dislocated. Oh the howling ! I pulled him to me and held him while I checked out his leg. Nothing broken ( relief ) - two minutes later after a few gentle rubs and probes to check for dislocation ( you are right - I have no idea what I'm looking for apart from the obvious ) he was back up and hobbling.
Needless to say, we called it a day and walked slowly home.
He is lapping up the attention and the gentle massaging to his injured leg ! Escaped again - Phew
poor Jasper and poor you - man they scare us sometimes
Hope it's just a bruise and nothing more serious...
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
Always a scary moment. Glad he's okay.

That must have been scary. I'm glad Jasper is okay.

My little hero !
