Sage & I were outside playing tonight about 5:30pm. We just walked around, and she had done pretty well. We were heading back to the house (we have almost an acre of yard, and it's all in the front of the house). She had ran up to the front door twice with no problem. The third time, she slammed her right front shoulder into the hitch of my husband's pickup extremely hard, and let out the loudest yelps and cries I have ever heard come out of her, and she refused to put weight on it at first. I came in, called the new vet who's out of town. I called her old vet, and went to his office. She did not break anything (thank the Lord), but will probably be in a lot of pain over the next couple of days. He did look at her eyes since we were there, and he is very sure that she actually has Progressive Retinal Atrophy (which means the tissue in her eyes are dying). He did say that I really should have this confirmed by the doggie eye doctor in the morning.
Also, this afternoon I talked to one of the girls that works at the doggie eye doctor's office. She has a Schnauzer that had to have both eyes removed a couple of years ago due to diabetes. She said that the dogs begin to adjust right away, whereas us furry parents don't adjust to things like this very well. ***Which is true in my case.***
I will post about my girl after the appointment tomorrow.
Thank you for all the prayers and thoughts.
