The puppy is going to send me to an early grave, he did the collar in the decking thing again today and I dont know how long he was stuck there but its the law here to have a tag on your dogs collar? Then he goes flying down the lounge chasing his tennis ball, tumbles and then cant get up again, we really thought he had dislocated his shoulder, the leg was floppy, he wouldnt put any weight on it and we couldnt feel the shoulder like we could on the other side, we rang the vets in a panic and told them we would be right there, I had visions of operations and casts and my credit card melting but by the time we had scrambled to put our shoes on and grab his documents, he limped out from under the table, gave it a little shake and trotted off into the garden! My head was thundering from adrenaline and stress, he must of just sprained it and then it felt better...

A similar thing happened to our pup, Socks when he was about 3 months old. He was playing outside and jumped from a plant box to the ground and suddenly curled into a whimpering heap. He seemed to barely be able to walk. I was beside myself, wondering how the hell he could have injured himself on such a little leap.

And by the time I found my car keys to take him to the vet, he was walking around as if everything were fine. No trouble since.

Well, LOTS of trouble, but none like that.
