As you might know from Jolanda already, I had to go see my vet. I have been limping on and off for a few months and it has gotten worse to the point, where I did not feel like going on walk! This is emergency level 100!! Me not on a walk? Sleeping all day or stalling while walking? That is kind of un-me-ish.
The vet checked me out first - all good. Then she manipulated my leg, which I did not mind at all! I am so tired of the pain, I let her do whatever she wanted. Well, it hurt, but I did not really tell her. Just a little pulling my leg back.
Then she took me and Jolanda - she is a good sister and went to the x-ray machine with me. Got to love her..
Apparently I have nasty arthritis in my elbow! The vet says that with all the miles I have walked in my life, it's not a surprise. She is right. I have walked many many miles. But you know mom, she will check the x-ray, too. Somehow she can't imagine that this is really happening..
Now I am on Neurontin and Rimadyl. Mom had a little freak out over it, because it's not that Neurontin are candies, you know?
We will see what happens. I am walking a little better, though and seem happier with it. Hope it'll stay that way.
Then we had several visitors over.
Our friend Becker and his family were here the day after Thanksgiving for a post Thanksgiving day. That was really nice! He even brought all his non furry siblings!! Neat. We went on a walk and had food and played Monopoly, too.. Well, I walked over the board a few times to go share some love. You got to do what you got to do, right?
Then yesterday we met up with another pal of ours, Max, who was at the airport with his mom. They had a short layover, so we could say hi. But the short layover turned into an overnight and full day stay! How cool is that? The airline messed things up, so our pal had tom stay. That was a fabulous thing.
We had some dinner at our place and then went to the Marina for a night and stretch the legs walk for Max and us.
Once we were back home, we all went to bed.
Today we got up early, because mom had her appt at the Neuro Clinic. Long story short, the news weren't good. Later more.
Here comes the good part. We took our friend to the Fort Funston, which he loved!! He could run and run and run and play with many dogs.
After that we went to eat some and then back home. Unfortunately they had to leave this evening. So we took them to the airport and said good bye til next time. I hope there will be a next time, soon!
Here are a few photos:
Happy woofs to you all..

Hope the meds help!
Sorry to hear about your ache. I had Rimadyl too, just be careful. Glad you met up with furiends at the airport and then, they STAYED! Hope your Mom is OK.
Sending good thoughts to your family.
POTP for both you and your Mom. Take it easy my friend and don't overdo things. You are both in our thoughts and prayers.
Thinking about and praying for you and your Momma!
Oh, I hate to think of my sweet pal in pain:( Hope the meds take that all away:) Hugs!
