No big doggy walk today folks. This morning was taken up with driving about trying to sort out a new key for the Memsahib’s car and taking refuse from the stable to the local council dump.
This afternoon we took Sparky back to the vet for a follow up on last week’s visit. His teeth extractions are healing OK. Looking at his leg X-rays it seems that he has calcified tendon growth around his rear left stifle joint. The vet recommended that he does not do too much jumping (so that’s the Nerf ball gun ruled out) and walks should be restricted to about half an hour at a time.
Well, that puts paid to my recent long walk programme as previously documented here. I will review the options and see what we can come up with.
It is a slight relief to me that Sparky should refrain from over-exertion in chasing and jumping for a ball, because every time I kick the thing I get a reciprocal kick from my 16 year old metal replacement hip joint that had an expected life of 10 years.
