Little George is never without drama.
At our Doodle Meets, George takes on everyone that is a non-doodle
There were a lot of doodles at the meet yesterday
and George has never seen himself as a small dog.
George was running alongside with the big boys, getting into the action when one of them turned around and properly knocked him over. And while he was down, another of the big boys stepped on him.
Poor little chap. He was in shock and when he got up he was limping on his other back leg.
May’s comment: After a visit to the vet just last week, we agreed that George did not require anything further for his injury from last November. He seemed to have recovered and doing just fine. Little dogs, I was told do get away with such injuries. They form scar tissue and just gets on with daily affairs. He might get arthritis eventually but that’s not a given. Just anything to delay having to go under the knife.
And then this happened yesterday. Poor little chap. He was completely knocked over by a very big labradoodle or a goldendoodle. Unfortunately for him, when he was down, another one stepped on him.
In total shock, he got up and hobbled away lifting his back left leg. This is the other leg where he has a weak patella. Will keep an eye on him. After his last injury, his condition improved after a week.
Not looking good last night though he is still himself with food and getting excited about going out. He has difficulties going up the stairs and he doesn’t seem to understand he has to use the good leg to stand when doing a pee. Trying to lead him to pee standing on the other leg is more complicated than it is obvious.
