I got shaved!

As you can see from this picture, I've had a rough time lately. I think I first hurt my back leg back when the snow was high and I was jumping and running in it.

My people took me to the vet and they said to try some anti-inflamatory drugs and to rest it. That didn't work out too well so they took some x-rays.

Nothing was broken but they spotted a tear in my leg and sent me to a special dog orthopedic vet.

They checked me out and said I needed surgery. Yikes!

They shaved my fur, gave me a shot and when I woke up I was very sore.

For the next 2 months I am not allowed to go for walks or play or jump. I am only allowed outside to do my business.

I can't even jump up on my boy's bed to sleep at night! It's terrible.

I might have more time to write in this blog now - and will try and send some pictures too.

I can't wait until July when I am healed and can run and jump and play again. I already miss my dog and human friends.
