    DefaultHK was not a happy camper this morning

    She still gives me sad face and ears when the leash comes out for her walk. She definitely has no idea what she did to be so restricted.

    Then comes last night. 'Where is my bedtime snack, Dad?' Does her best to let me know that I need to got to the treat bag.

    Then comes this morning. I get ready to take her out for a wolk, and she keeps pulling towards her food bowl. 'No! We are going out to poop.' Sad face can't figure it out, but decides to go along.

    We get back, and she darts to her food bowl. 'Sorry! Not this morning. We are going to see Dr. Brewer in a little while.' Whine, low growl, Yip and yelp!

    Getting her to the car was no easier. It was interesting watching her antics toward the food, she was starving.

    'WTH! NO! I am not going in there. You didn't feed me. What are they going to do to me in there? NO!'

    Well, I win. She is not happy. And she was reallynot happy when I left without her.

    HK is having her teeth cleaned, her knee x-rayed (for whatever it might show), and an ortho is going to palpitate her leg while she is under and give an assessment on the knee.

    ]I don't know if she will be happy to see me when I pick up up, or mad at me for putting her through it all.

    Poor HK! It's sad that they don't understand what we are doing is for their own good. Give her lots of lovins when you pick her up and a big treat!

    Good luck!!
    X-rays won't show you if it is a torn ligament...ligaments don't show up on x-ray.
    The best you will see is inflammation in the knee joint.

    Fingers crossed for HK!!~

    Damn it. Ortho assessment is still to come, but she is going to lose the three 1st premolars she has left. No roots, they have been absorbed. Part of her birth defect of missing enamel on her teeth. My poor girl. She likes crunchy food and won't be happy if she has to eat mush.

    I guess the ortho is good. I'll get more, I hope, when I pick her up. No movement from the drawer pull. If there is a tear, it's a Partial. Continue of rest therapy. Potentially a sprain, same therapy. I can get her around 4 cdt.
