Me and Stanley went to see Dogtur Eddie today. The good news is that we can start running but we can only do it on flat, no hills. We wonder if there is such a place? The reason we cannot do hills is because of some other troubles. The dogtur thinks my "skip" is because I have chronically strained my shoulders from chasing the ball (explosive motion) and then skidding on slippery floors. He hopes in a couple months they will be back to normal. If not then he will take a picture. I will just tell him mom already has 87 million pictures so use one of hers. Right now he said it is sore and inflamed and that I don't even fully extend my front legs! But in the meantime I cannot play with my ball AT ALL! He said, "Three months - no ball!" I cried when he said that.
Stanley has troubles too, worse than mine. His knees pop out really easy (he has bad tracks). The dogtur said eventually he might need an operation on his knees! He also said this situation makes him susceptible to ACL (or some other letters like that) problems. "But we are just pups I shouted!" Then the dogtur said if we stay lean and take a pill for our joints it will really help. He also said we should swim a lot. So that is what we will do . . . run . . . swim . . . take pills . . . no ball.
