Leggy Problem

I think my hind leggy looks alright. This picture was taken 2 months ago. Is still looks the same as today, but Ms Owner said I'm getting lousy at my landing. She saw me landing awkwardly twice recently when I'm jumping too high up the air to catch whatever there's available to catch. When I'm limping, she felt like fainting. She got paranoid about my high leaping skill and demand me not to perform that silly stunt anymore. No matter how cute people think it is. She will try her best to minimize throwing balls and treats at high angles because I simply won't wait for them to drop, I just jump without knowing my limit.

~ According to the studies, early spaying before puberty cause me to be so 'leggy' and have a lower bone density, no wonder I hardly hit 14kg ~

We find this small table really useful for me to practise the distance control exercise. I won't have the chance to move forward during the interval. But doing 'down' is demanding as I have a too big body to fit.

~ Can't you get me a bigger table? ~

Maggie & Mitch said...

We've never heard that early spaying before puberty makes you more leggy! I wonder if this is why Mitch has the longest darn legs!
Take it easy, Pacco! You're a superstar and have to stay in tiptop form!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Pacco, I hope your legs are getting all back to normal now. Hey that photo really shows what great shape you're in!

Gussie said...

Hey Pacco. We had exactly the same ... Jake loves to jump really high to catch a ball or whatever, but he was starting to suffer a bit afterwards so we're more careful about how we throw things for him now. Though as we're both rubbish at throwing thngs he still gets the occasional high ball! Love that pic of you on the table, BTW! Gus n Jake

Always better safe than sorry is what my Mum says. Be careful with big jumping, you gotta stay healthy, so you can be happy!

Woofs, Johann

It's good Ms Owner is taking good care of you. You look wonderful but being healthy is the most important thing. Take care.

I have a gimpy leg. I'm sorry about yours.

My dogs' backs tend to get twisted and sore if they do too much leaping. Different from legs, but same actions. I like to throw a frisbee for them (and they like to chase it) but I always try to keep it low to the ground so no twisting. Gotta stay healthy for agility!
