    Default Honeys, Iím home

    And posting under back issues.
    Ugh.

    Savannah isnít acting right - last night she didnít want to use the steps to get in bed, and after I put her in bed she woke me up a few hours later to get down and go out to potty.

    Sheís always been a very athletic gal, and I fear itís to the detriment of her health. She turned 7 on May 1, so still a young girl...

    Sheís peeing and pooping and eating and drinking, tail wagging as per usual, but I was in the kitchen earlier and she was reluctant to stand on her hind legs and put her front paws on my leg, so Iím worried. She loves ear scratches and thatís how she tells me she wants em.

    Bless. Resting comfortably, but Brian closes at noon tomorrow. Iím going to try to restrict her activity and keep a close eye on her. Prayers, thoughts, and magical rayz are coveted.

    Oh geez, Rae!! She's just at the age where back troubles start to show up. Sending tons of back and just as many .(7 years already How the heck did that happen???) Can you get her into see Brian today?

    Yeah, easiest way I could tell with Angel is she wouldn't jump into my lap when I sat down on the floor, just sort of hopped an inch or two with her front paws. Sending rayz for SJ!!! ~~~~~~

    Iím not sure how she got to be 7, either, Paula. Time flies when youíre having fun, I guess!

    Sheís acting perfectly normal this morning, barking her head off at a chipmunk (or possibly ground squirrel) from her post on the back of the couch...

    How do people live without dogs? And I mean why would anyone want to? The love of a good doggie is priceless.

    If i took her to see Brian, Iím betting he will say anti inflammatory and crate rest as much as possible... which I can do... sheís also licking her butt so I bet sheís having anal gland issues.

    Disc issues tend to get worse before they get better, if she is acting like herself, it might not be a disc but yes, 7 is the right age for the degeneration to start so it could be. I can't believe she is already 7. Wow! Did she maybe tweak something on the 4th with the fireworks? Or is she indifferent?

    Sutton was home before me on Thursday night and he said she was ok... I stayed for the fireworks two doors down (which is 1/2 a mile here). Iím sure she ran around and barked at them, but she doesnít get scared...

    IDK Lisa. I just hope sheís ok. Acting perfectly fine now.

    As someone who has been through this more than her fair share, if she is acting fine today, I don't think it is her back. Day one is exactly how you described for a leak, something is off but you can't quite pinpoint it. However, day two there is NO question. It is usually all bad. That doesn't mean don't bring her in for a blood work check to make sure all is good in SJ's world, just if she is acting normal, that is awesome! Sending just in case rayz.

    I wonder if she's pulled a shoulder muscle? A couple of times over the years I've thought back stuff was going on, but turned out it was muscular. Lisa's right...she'd be getting progressively worse with IVDD. that it's something else!!! Tons more and . These guys are such a worry!!
