Tomorrow, Mommy and I are going to the veterinarian to get my legged checked out. You see, I have a bad leg. It's weird though because I don't really limp on it, it is just wobbly and somewhat turned out when I walk or run. When I run, I don't usually put any pressure on it either. I have trouble jumping onto furniture such that I usually have to try a few times or think twice about what I'm about to do.
Mommy tried wrapping it a few weeks ago. I didn't like that. It stiffened my leg such that whenever I took a step my leg would swing out horizontally with my body. The vet wrap would also keep falling down over my paw and that really bugged me!
I guess it helped some. The wrap helped give my leg the support that it is apparently lacking.
My leg isn't as bad as it was a few weekends ago. But, still, we haven't gone on many walks or been to the dog park very often. I did, however, get to go to the dog park today. But anyway, my point is that, I don't go out very often because when we do my leg acts up again and then I start to "limp."
I'm nervous about my trip tomorrow. I hope I don't get poked and prodded and stuck with needles. It's a love-hate relationship. I love going to vet to see all the people and other dogs, but I hate to get my temperature taken and my shots! Oh well...I'll keep you updated on what is wrong with my leg, until then, I shall go sleep or play with my new toy.
