    No More Squirrel Chasing For Maggie

    My baby girl Maggie has torn her ACL on her left hind leg. A trip to
    the Vets this morning confirmed my fears. It happened yesterday morning
    on her regular morning outee. I thought she might have sprained something
    as she came limping back to the back door. Rest & pain meds didn't seem
    to help her much at all & she was crying a lot by evening time.

    The Vet said she thinks it might be a tear and not a rupture & with total
    rest & some meds she could recover enough to start small walks on leash.
    I have a feeling this is going to be a long summer of confinment & rest for
    my sweetie. Can you please spare some good vibes & prayers that Maggie
    heals up without surgery? The Vet thinks it is possible & I want so to believe

    Oh no!! That is my worst fear as well. I am so sorry.
    I will be hoping that it will heal up and she will not have to have surgery.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I can hear RB Cody saying *Oy Vey*! He went through torn ACLs on each knee. It's my worse fear with Mz Logan too (that and Bloat) Blame it on the critters invading our babies's property!

    Lots of prayers, of course, Liz, for you and darling Maggie. I guess it's good that it's 100 degrees and too hot to run around.
    Now listen up, Maggie...stay cool and calm 'cause mom is really worried and so are we. I hope Maggie doesn't need surgery.

    I've been Boooo'd!

    I know of a few bichons who've been able to heal with rest. Prayers this works for Maggie!

    Oh poor Maggie, that must hurt. I hope she heals up without surgery. Fister and I send lots of positive thoughts.

    Aww, thank you all for the good wishes for Maggie (&me) She is being
    a good patient so far & the pain med seems to be keeping her comfortable
    for the most part. I've worked out a routine of going out & back in for outees
    by using the easiest steps to go up & down into the house. I now use the
    front porch steps with Maggie (easier for her), so she has met my porch
    kitties face to face now. So far so good with both her & them.

    Poor girl! Lady tweaks her shoulder occasionally and getting her to rest and let it heal isn't fun.

    Hopefully she's a better patient than miss impatient.
