Remi's click has turned into a full fledged injury...I'm trying not to beat myself up! =(( It is the same leg that was clicking. Last night wee ran some flyball drills and worked on exchanges and when we came back in she wouldn't put any weight on her leg. Woke up this morning and nothing has changed...she is still hobbling. From me messing around with it; it seems like her wrist area is the most sensitive? Calling the vet shortly....

Oh no Chris, poor Remi! Keep us updated.

I don't know what the deal is with some of these Lacys and their hind legs. Sadie, Cannon and now Remi have all had weird lameness in a hind leg. In my case, and from what I've gathered from you guys, it isn't painful per se, but it is causing them to favor the leg. It could all be a coincidence, but please let us know what the vet finds.

I hope that it is nothing serious. Our dogs get beat up a lot but some rest time always seems to do the trick.

Ok....so did someone mention these dogs are drama queens??? She hopped all morning on one back leg...did the same right before I took her to the vet, but when I put her on the ground in the parking lot at the vet's office she walked in on all four legs! :ymapplause: Her new nickname is "Hollywoooooood."

So the vet pushed, pulled, and prodded and got her leg to click maybe twice...he thinks it is in the knee...but doesn't feel it is going to be a problem. He thinks she just pulled something last night or overexerted herself a little. She will sit out of flyball this weekend and we will wait till next week to walk any...might get her swimming some this weekend. We will continue to watch it especially after strenuous activites and if it gets real bad he said he would take x-rays. Time to start blood trail training!

All in all she is my little actress (*) and I am very happy she is ok and is getting better!

Glad it wasn't anything serious. Inflamed joints can click and pop...mine do when my muscles get tight.

Cannon's is his right front leg, so it's probably not some weird Lacy gene thang going on. Everyone noticed his limping at agility last night, and Anita (the instructor) is sending the contact information for Dr. Metcalf in Prescott, (2 hours away), who does "Gentle osteopathic-style techniques for treating back (spine), foot injuries and immobility in performance dogs and companion animals". Apparently all the 'in-the-know' agility handlers in Phoenix happily drive the 4 hours and pay $$$ in order to keep their dogs in competitive shape. Anita says he'll spend 1.5 hours in the initial appointment going through Cannon's muscular-skeletal system with a fine toothed comb. In the mean time, she said I should pull on each joint of his toes to see if something is out of whack and will pop back in place. I'll try that tonight. She also said the problem could have its root anywhere, even in his spine.

I told Ann I what Dr. Metcalf would be doing, and her question was:

"Will he be under anesthesia?" :-ss

Like I always say... wise woman.

You guys are nuts...... Aint nothin that cant be fixed with vet wrap, sutures, a staple gun, a good set of instruments (carpenters tools), various vitamins, drugs, antibiotic and penicillin. Any good cut kit and a tailgate to work on should suffice :D

Chris, I'm so glad everything is OK! Jim, maybe it's just the drama gene that is being passed down /:) Sadie will act like she's dying from the smallest things. But becomes miraculously cured when a strange dog walks by the porch.

:-BD Steve , not much we haven't fixed at some point huh?
Thank God we don't have the equipment to put a dog under :))

Heidi's surgery would have cost a lot less tho.. X_X

On the "Actor" note , Trapper, Lucifer, Brutus..well all of them :p they will ham it up
if the right person is watching. Trapper becomes the Oscar winner within mere seconds of seeing me after a hunt. That dog will run miles cut up the belly but not make mention of it until "Mama" is around 8-| They keep Mike in trouble.. :)) He will call after a hunt to let me know they are on their way in and update me on the nights events, always addressing what injuries if any the dogs received. Then they get in and the dog(s) play it up big time..even knowing this I still give Mike & Kass a hard time about neglecting my pour pitiful babies.. :))
