Sick little girl

I wouldn't share this with too many people but I know I have a lot of animal lovers among my bloggy friends. My poor assistant hurt her leg last week. We're not sure what happened but last Sunday she was limping pretty badly. Being a large dog and prone to strains I didn't think too much of it at first .... especially when she seemed to be getting better on Tuesday. But soon she was not putting any weight on her back leg again. She has been very lethargic all weekend and today we made an appointment for her at the vet for tomorrow afternoon.

When someone just can't communicate how they feel I'm left feeling so helpless. I hope she understands that we are taking care of her and will not let her be in pain much longer.

  1. Someone looks pretty sad. Hope your assistant gets a speedy diagnosis and treatment. It is frustrating that they can't communicate to tell us what hurts and where. Our dog (golden retriever) tore the ACL on her back leg a year ago. The surgery was intense (and expensive) but she recovered to her pre-injury activity level (she is a murderess of not a few squirrels, I am ashamed to say). On another note, I can't help admiring your KJR wonky star quilt. I just bought 21 FQs of KJR and am pondering what to make with it - yours looks wonderful!

  3. By the looks of that photo I'm quite sure she knows you care and are doing your best to make her feel better. She's a very lucky girl to have those lovely quilts around her. Hope she feels better soon!

  7. I am so sorry to hear about Jada. I hope she is back to herself soon. When Ali had a blockage she got really sad too and just pouted. I hope your sweetheart feels better soon. Ali and Rusty send lots of dogie kisses.

  14. I hope Jada is feeling better soon. Rotties are notorious for hiding thier pains until they become too much to bear, silly cuddle bugs. I love the breed and yours looks very well cared for and loved.

  15. Simon (my little lab mix) and I send Jada our best! We'll keep our fingers and paws crossed that she's doing better soon. I bet the pile of snuggly quilts are helping already!

  16. Poor girl!! I hope it is something minor and she's back to her running around soon. I'll keep her in my thoughts. It is so tough when they don't feel well.
