Uh Oh I'm Getting Older

After our splendid outing to the beach on Sunday, BM noticed that I was limping on my left rear leg this week. A couple of years ago, I had surgery to repair a very busted up cruciate ligament on this leg so you can imagine the consternation in the household now! I was very worried that I'd have to wear another one of these satellite dishes on my head.

Fortunately, Dr Natalie today pronounced that I just have a strain but arthritis is setting in because I'm now a Senior Pooch. So, my dinner will now include lots of Sasha's Blend (smells fishy, yum!) and I'm confined to barracks for the rest of the week...sigh. At least my butt doesn't have to be shaved again like this. The shame of it all still makes me blush.


  1. Oh Bailey,
    I'm so sorry to hear about your health issues. Our paws are crossed for a full and speedy recovery, and LOTS of fun time on the beach!
    Sending lotsaluv

  2. Oh Bailey, those pictures made me feel so sorry for you. But I'm glad to know you just had a sprain & not something much more serious. You just need some rest. I hope you'll feel better soon. Keep us updated OK?

  3. Oh dear I am glad that it can be helped with resting and no operation needed. Loojks by those photo's that you went through the mill. Rest easy and you will soon be back to walking out. Hugs GJ xx

  4. Having cared for pups like you who had orthopedic surgery I know how important it is to get your rest when there's a set back! I hope all of it is becomes a distant memory very soon and you're back out enjoying life!! Take care!!!

  5. Yikes, strains are no fun. I've had them quite a number of times from running too much. Gotta rest for a while before it goes away. Take care!!
