Hiya it is me the most handsome Border Collie in Minnesota!
I am having some leg troubles, my right rear leg collapses on me sometimes. I had a couple of crashes on the steps, so now they have a fence up at the bottom of the stairs and I am not supposed to go up or down unassisted.
I am not in any pain…it just happens to older dogs…good thing I have three good legs!
I had company this week, I tried to play ball until Far Side said “NO more.” She also said “Border Collies don’t know when to quit.” These are some of my bestest friends from North Dakota, who used to live next door…the twins are the same age as me. I got lots of lovin’. ( I am the reason they are not afraid of dogs…they were very afraid of me when I was little and they were little….then they learned to throw the ball.)
Sometimes I follow Far Side to the gardens.
Mostly I lay down to rest and sleep. Far Side says with rest I might recover. The next week or so will tell the story. I had the same leg troubles last winter on the ice…but back then they blamed it on the ice… this time they think it is the nerves in my old back that causes my one weak leg. They are taking good care of me!
