Poor Ella!! I hope she gets well soon. Is Mac contrite? I am sure he misses her. Give him a pat for me and Ella a hug when shes well enough. Be brave Flake!!Yesterday I (suddenly) went off tennis balls. My dogs were competing for the same ball at the dog park and collided, the chocolate lab (Ella) came off second-best. (the puppy, Mac--a Huntaway X--6 months old) is bigger than her now.
Ella ended up in a screaming heap and I had to carry her back to the car. She spent the day at the vet today having x-rays under sedation. Thankfully no broken bones, but the slides have shown how bad the arthritis in her elbows is.
She's on anti-inflammatories for 2 weeks, then as required.
This is a pic that the vet nurse sent me today when Ella was waking up after x-rays. (note the treats under her nose, they were trying to entice her to wake up )

The pics below show how big Mac has gotten now. (the one of them on the grass was taken shortly before the accident)
