Lately I’ve been having a hard time standing up after I’ve been laying down for awhile. Going up stairs has been hard for me to do too.
So My Margret took me to see Dr. Bols this morning. I was kind of scared but My Margret petted me and talked softly to me and that made me feel better.
When Dr. Bols came in she called me a sweet girl and petted me for awhile. She gave me a really good back massage then she moved my back legs this way and that way and flexed my paws.
Then she and My Margret talked for a long time, so long in fact that I laid down and kind of dosed off.
My Margret and My Greg have known for several years that I have hip dysphasia and Dr. Bols said I now have developed arthritis in my back legs and hips which is making it hard for me to get up and down and climb stairs.
While it’s not going to go away I have a treatment plan in place that will hopefully help slow it down and make it easier for me to move. In the meantime I’m the boss and am to do what I can do until I tell them I can’t.
You all know right that My Margret can be pretty goofy, well I heard her tell my Greg all about it then she said “guess what, Belle didn’t have an ear infection!” If you’ve been following us for awhile you know that I’m the ear infection queen in our family. So yeah there is that! 🙄
