Hey pals. Well, we has some bad news. Finley's bent outta shape.
Sometimes she gets her nose outta joint, speshully when she are dealin wif me. But dis time it are not her nose, it are her hip.
We don't really know how it happened. We'd seen her walking around fine (well, as good as an almost 14 year old arthritic dog walks), and she had gone to sleep in a crate. When her momma got her out to take her out, she couldn't walk or put weight on her left rear leg. And it was dangling funny. She wuz clearly in pain, so she went to da vet today. Dey did some x-rays, and she has a dislocated hip. She got some pain meds and anti-inflammatories and is resting now.
She's going to the orthopedic vet tomorrow morning to get it popped back into place. She's not a candidate for surgery. She's almost 14 and has got her skin allergies, a heart condition, arthritis, dementia . . . maybe she could be a presidential candidate but not a surgical one. So we are really hopin this works.
Good thoughts, POTP, prayers, voodoo incantations, human sacrifices are all appresheated.
We need her to pull through this - I'm not ready to be da senior pup!
