Out of the Blue

The Gunnar-man started limping the other night; he had no cuts or any such thing, so we tried to keep him from being too active to further aggravate what seemed to be a minor sprain. This is not easy with Gunnar, who is sort of a cross between Tigger from Winnie the Pooh and Rocky the Squirrel, as he tends to jump up and down when excited (his standing vertical leap is easily three feet) and fly off the back deck or front porch when we let him out. He seems better now, so we'll put his injury to the test today, as the dogs are climbing the walls after two days without getting out for a run on the doggie trail.

So - I 100% disagree on that grounds, and also the grounds that my labs will not baby it until better. The torn ligament had to be watched very closely and she had to be crated regularly.

Yeah, I'd have to agree about my guys as well. They are each remarkably stoical, and are decidedly unwilling to slow down or give into any sort of pain. For example, I posted a photo years ago of Hudson the wonder dog in a pink cast that everyone thought was humorously obscene. That cast lasted a couple of days after the photo until Hudsy removed it herself by banging it on the deck until it came off.

We did go for a walk on the trail, and the Gunnar-man proceeded to run around at a million miles an hour, but thankfully didn't re-aggravate his leg. He did, however, run full speed into a tree as he tried to keep any eye on Hudson over his shoulder (since she can't keep up with him). He stopped and looked at the tree for a second, and raced off again as if nothing happened.

As I say, remarkably stoical...
