Oh, goodness, I was so wrong about Annie.
Kris took her to the vet's this morning as I dashed off to this morning's Master Gardener hotline. Annie has still been having problems walking and has refused to jump up onto the couch or the bed or anything. She didn't run much at the park, either time we went yesterday, so something was definitely still up.
Well, we found out today.
The vet took x-rays of her back end. Turns out, she has both a bad hip which will cause problems in the upcoming years, and a back injury. Two spine discs are compressed causing severe inflamation in her back.
No more running around. No more all day hikes. No more playing with Blue. No more chasing the red bone. None of the fun stuff.
Poor Annie girl.
