First off, I want to extend a heartfelt sympathy and an honorary post to Miss Lilac of Tales and Tails. Lilac's mom had to make the hard, but loving decision to let Miss Lilac cross the bridge. Please go and give her your condolences and support through this hard time and read her beautiful post about her dear girl. Much love to the whole family. Run Free Pretty Purple Lady!!!
In other news, it seems I've hurt myself. Yep. After a week of running around in the mountains, chasing deer and everything else, it was playing at home with my cousin Rebel that did me in.
Apparently I did somthing to my left hind leg while
So mom gave me a good once-over...pulling here, moving there. Nothing. So they thought I may have just pulled something. Next morning? Yep. I'm still not putting any weight on that leg. Now, I can walk and run on it, but I won't stand on it. Mom even put some frozen peas (BLEH!) on it to help. Nope.
This morning and no improvement meant we went to Dr. Vet first thing. Dang it! Dr. Vet says she thinks I might have a small ACL tear. Mom was glad it wasn't my hip/knee. So now I'm on anti-inflamatories and rest for a week. REST?!?! I can't rest! Rebel is here!
I have to go in my OWN backyard on a leash now! How embarrassing! I know the squirrels are mocking me! We have to do this for a week. If no improvement then I have to go back and get an EX-RAY to make sure it's not something worse. I don't know how it could get worse than having to do your "business" with mom and dad six feet away from you while squirrels taunt you, but apparently it can.
So today begins Day 1 of Anna Prison Camp.
I still have some hiking photos to share, so I'll try to post those this week so I can remember the days of running free!
