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…

    …is there something else going on?

    Is Linnea getting any sort of core strengthening exercises? You can use couch cushions for unstable surface work, or build your own Buja board. Walks and free play don’t build strength, only stamina.
