Before I got Emery, I thought all dogs liked car rides. I was wrong.
Emery seems to have balance issues in cars. She also likes to wander back and forth in the back seat at first, trying to find that “perfect spot”. She was doing this last weekend in my brother’s car, which is a standard. Throw in a corner, and you get clumsy Emery. She slipped off the seat and hurt her leg. She seemed fine when I dropped her off at my parents house. I didn’t know she was hurt until that evening. She wouldn’t put any weight on her back right leg. Aside from that, it wasn’t bugging her. I could touch her from hip to foot, squeezing gently. Nothing. No yelps, or whines. She just sat there. So I decided to wait and see if she improved.
She has, and is just about back to normal. She just looks a little stiff after laying down for a while. No daycare for her tomorrow. I don’t want to risk her hurting herself more.
