~ fetch accident ~

06 September 2005
Koda was playing fetch when her front left leg knocked into ari’s knee. she’s been so energetic lately that we started to run out of games to play with her… at the beginning was playing chase. but i got tired faster than she was. i couldn’t keep up with her. so, ari took over and played up and down the stairs. that got really tiring, too. we thought, we won’t want to play that kinda games with her when she’s full grown… we got no endurance to match a dog, for sure…

so starting last week, we taught her playing fetch with a tennis ball. that way she can still exercise and run around, but it won’t involve any running for us.

after a few days, she can bring the ball back to us. before, she chased the ball, but didn’t bother to return to us… distracted by the chewing. the ball got so beat up, it practically has no fuzz on it anymore. but she’s getting better at it, though…

today, when she ran back to ari (full speed!) to return the ball, she crashed into ari’s knee cap. the knee was okay… but Koda’s left leg didn’t seem to be okay. ari was worried. but during the first two hours, Koda seems to be fine. but four hours later, she started to show slight limping.

so, let’s see tomorrow. if she is still limping, we’re going to have to make a vet appointment…

awww, poor thing… puppies that age recover quickly, probably just slight bruising… hope all is well, thal.

yeah, i think it was just a bruise. she’s fine and has zoomed around like little rocket first thing in the morning. no doctor appointment to be made, yay!

It could well be bruise but do expect this from an energetic puppy. Ours also gave a scare when he started limping one day. The vet said he stretched some muscles and will heal.

Get well soon, Koda!
