A visit to the vet and puppy fever

Hey all,

I feel like a slacker this week. I've done a little bit of training, but not much. Riot came up lame on Tuesday, so I rested him Tuesday, Wednesday, and today. He has been much better, but he was due for his booster shots so I took him into the vet. Doc checked him out, and he was able to tell which leg Riot was lame on without me telling him. Vet said he felt some crepitus in the elbow and Riot was resisting some movement. So I'm going to try to keep it light for him the rest of the week, which should be easy since its going to be in the 50s all weekend. I also bought some glucosamine and omega3 that the vet recommended. Otherwise, he got a clean bill of health.

In other news, it's puppy fever time again for me. Puppy videos and pedigrees and anything I can get my hands on. wakemup, I NEED one of your little babies! I love watching their little tails.... AHHH! Just have to keep reminding myself that I have NO extra money and NO extra room in my apartment for two crazy dogs.

Anyway, keep training everyone! Anyone running a trial or hunt test this weekend?? Can't wait to hear about Tito's agility adventure!

I hope he's OK....

Does the vet think is ED or an injury?

Oh Marie, you have been through the worry ringer too. I hope Riot gets better really soon too. Cyber hugs from me too.

I know the puppy fever thing. I think I am cured for a little while.

Are you ever really cured? I too love to pour over pedigrees. Too bad there isn't some kind of job associated with it.

Okay, you folks with puppy fever, here is a link to photos one of my new puppy parents took today. The little girls are her grandchildren. https://picasaweb.google.com/maywoodnancy7/WildLitter?authkey=Gv1sRgCPbM1er0jaqlDw If you want to be cured, give it about a week and then come have a sleep over at my place. The dirty dozen got up today at 4:30 am!

No, puppy fever is never cured! I am always checking the wakemup page for updates!!

Sorry to hear about Riot... Hope he gets better quickly!

We have NOTHING to do this weekend AND I took tomorrow off work. If the rain holds off, the plan is a hike, swimming, baths, grooming and cleaning the house. May squeeze in some training. Back to agility next week.

Do you think that Riot's problem might be from the manipulations necessary for the xrays? It was the first thing that crossed my mind. In any case, hope he's okay soon!
In the 50's?? That's perfect training weather!!!
