This weekend Dawson hurt one of his back legs and can't use it at all. We called the vet and she thinks he may have damaged the ligament in the knee. Looks like he'll most likely need surgery. Poor pup. With record temperatures outside he and Mattie want to be running around like crazy dogs (which is how he actually hurt himself in the first place). Estimated recovery time...6 to 14 weeks. He's spending a lot of time looking sad on the floor. We're hoping that he'll make a full recovery. He goes in tomorrow for x-rays and a full examination of the damage.
