Jess fell & wouldnt get up on a walk today.

My sis inlaw came over. She'd had a flat battery... needed to drive... so she drove for 45mins to come here... Doggie play was a bonus...Blah, blah, blah.

Anyway, we all went for a walk, she had her 2 poodles, Con had Tyson, I had jess. It had gotten dark but, no matter. Everyone happily strolling down the street.

Jess & I were last, she couldnt keep up with everyone so we just ambled along following them. 1/2 way through our walk, Jess tripped, fell over & just laid there. She did not even attempt to get up!

I called out to con. I took Tyson as he lifted her from the ground & we made a beeline for home.

She seems ok, but she won't move from her bed for now.

Poor Jess - what a fright.

Hopefully she is feeling just a bit shocked and sore and "old-ladyish". Do let us know how she gets on, and give her a gentle hug from me and Kuch hug

That's scary, but I'd liken it to an elderly person having a fall - it shakes the body up & sometimes you just need a day or two to get over it.

How is she now?

I gave her a kiss & cuddlde.... I said, " that's from Kuchar."

I freaked Lorraine... she just didnt even try to get up.

I think she's sprained her front left joint. She is walking but limping & not weight baring at the moment.

I will give her a day or 2 Caryll, then... its another vet trip if she's not literally back on her feet.

Did she trip or did she stumble and fall? How is her heart?
I hope she's back to herself ASAP! hug

She lost her footing between the grass & concrete path. She just went down like a sack of potatoes & stayed there.

Maybe have her checked out. Dogs have strokes and heart issues.
Not to scare you and I'm sure it's nothing.
