Same here, but no broken ribs or stitches. Bouts of sciatica and other stuff though. My dogs are my certified physical therapists I pushed Tucker around in his wagon for many a mile when he got old. I don't think you are OCD at all, but if you are so am I.I hike with the dogs off leash rain, snow, storms, blizzards, some years 364 days. I go with strep throat, when I had 90 hour work weeks at 3:30 am, with broken ribs, and once (unwisely) with a ton of abdominal stitches. Yes, it is a little OCD, but I feel as though they are owed a minimum standard of living to be excellent dogs for the rest of the 22 hours in a day. tippykayak reminded me that when my old golden Joplin turned 15, I had to put him in the car and drive him around the block so he would think he went for his daily outing, as it was so ingrained.
