The only real problem we've had is that she broke a bone in her foot last Saturday. She was running at the dog park at full speed -- which is really saying something -- and a squirrel dropped out of a tree on her right hand side. She cut hard right and cracked a bone in her left foot. The good news is that our vet said that we don't have to have surgery to reinforce the bone. The bad news is that it will take 6 - 8 weeks for her to heal, and she has to be in a splint the whole time. The hard part is keeping her quiet and the splint in place -- she doesn't seem to mind running on it. Over the past week the vet has had to re-splint it three times. But we will manage.
