Having a little snooze…

  Linnea needs some rest after playing in yard all afternoon.  Our 7 year old took this photo. She has been very active, but I think she is falling more frequently than she used to. Is it because she forgets she has only 3 legs, or is there something else going on? She seems happy as can be and is not deterred when she momentarily collapses. Linnea is delighted to chase after a tennis ball for as long as someone is willing to throw. Another strange symptom – she is starting to lose some of her newly grown fur. We will be visiting the vet because some of the new fur that came in on her shaved areas is now falling out. Linnea has a few bare patches. I wonder if it is an infection.  All in all – this is a happy dog. No complaints on her part. It is just her pawrents wondering if all is well…

Off and running

Here’s Linnea – ready to play some tripawd ball. She is not going to let one less leg stop her!

The staple-removal went well (at least the vet techs said she didn’t seem too uncomfortable), and her incision has healed cleanly. She is even growing a little hair back. But as a result of her preference for lying on her two-legged side , Linnea has developed a good-sized sore on her front elbow. We are supposed to make sure she has a well-padded place to rest. But of course this girl prefers the cool tiles or the hardwood floors.

Look at her run!!
