You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me!

There’s a ton of good stuff going on right now, but there’s just one thing that’s on my mind. Ruby jumped over a stream and twisted a toe. 😦 Just like that. He jumped over that stream hundreds of times before, but today something went wrong. Maybe there was a rock where he landed, maybe he tangled it as he took off, maybe he misjudged the landing, who knows… It’s the toe that he sprained last year, so it’s possible that he just jammed it… He’s not limping now so hopefully it’s not too bad. I’m taking him to the vet for X-rays tomorrow.

Java took over in Ruby’s Rally Obedience class today as I don’t want him to walk on that toe and she was rocking it.

    Doesn’t that just kill you??! Shela did something similar yesterday — took a jump during practice at home in the yard, landed wrong, & was obviously hurt. Nothing serious, i don’t think, but it’s SO frustrating to have something like that happen when we’ve spent so much time (& money!) already this year, rehabbing from other injuries. How do we keep them fit AND keep them from getting hurt??

    So i know how you’re feeling! I hope Ruby’s toe is just a minor thing & is back to normal soon.

    • It’s a real mood breaker 😦 So sorry to hear that Shela hurt herself as well… I hope she heals soon!

    Hope Ruby recovers soon!
    Nuno hurt his paw too 😦 I was at the physiotherapist last week but she didn’t find anything. Yesterday I thought I could do a bit jump training and he got lame after a few jumps (and I stopped training for him). Today he whined when he jumped out the car 😦 Think I have to go to the vet again…
    Yes, it is a mood breaker!

    • Oh no, poor Nuno! I hope the vet will find out what is wrong this time. Wishes for speedy recovery!
