Jack’s Walk

Jack and Leo at the Park, ©voyager, all rights reserved

It’s another hot and humid day here and Jack and I only walked as far as the corner and back. Jack was a good boy and got his business done quickly (Good poop, Mr. Schnoop!) and then he turned toward home, anxious for his cool tile floor and A/C vent. He’s still limping a bit on his rt. leg, but you have to look closely to see it. I’ve been watching that leg from behind every day for 11 years so I notice the small stuff. One more day and he’ll be totally back to normal and hopefully he won’t get quite as excited next time he and Leo play together. This photo from early spring is Jack playing with Leo at the park.

    Awww they look as if they are playing very politely. Hope Jack is back to his usual range of movement tomorrow.

    I know what you mean about knowing the way they move, Thorn is stiff on getting up these days nd has a definite limp in her left rear knee. I’m taking her to the vet tomorrow to have her eye looked at, its not right, it hasn’t got an infection, but the inner bit of her that was under where she had a niobiam(?sp) cyst look peculiar and is occasionally bleeding *worried sigh*

    It’s hard watching them get on in years, isn’t it.
    Thorn’s eye does sound worrying. I’ll keep good thoughts and hope the vet finds nothing serious.

    Well whatever it is isn’t scratching Thorn’s eye, nor obviously bothering her and any further action would involve an opthalmic specialist, so the vet and I to watchful waiting for the next six months unless there is obvious change (photos have been taken), what I hoped for but somehow I can’t help catastrophising when it comes to the dogs.
