Another expensive mutt

It seems as though we MIGHT be keeping the streak alive with expensive animals.  Little Rosie started limping on Christmas Eve, so we took her to the doctor on Tuesday to have the vet check her out.  He examined her and didn't find anything, so he took some x-rays of her next.  They didn't think they'd be able to get the shots they needed of her awake, but they said they'd try.  They just didn't know what a model patient our little Rosie is!  She laid there as she was instructed to do, got her x-rays, and then a treat :)

The vet came in and showed us the x-rays.  I don't remember the specifics, but I do know that he's concerned that she may have some hip dysplasia.  He's going to have a specialist read the x-rays and get back to us probably next week.  In the meantime, she's got some tasty painkillers, and they seem to be working because we haven't noticed a limp yet.

The FUNNIEST thing that we say in the x-rays was a tiny little staple in her butt.  Yes, I said butt, and it was plain as day on the x-ray.  Lucky for us (or I should say Joacim) we found it in her poop a couple of hours after we got home.

As the tech at the vet said, there's a reason we get animals like this.  It's because no one else would do the things we do to make sure they're healthy and happy!
