Lynn's Comments: Farley had always been a healthy pooch, but since dogs suffer like we do from illnesses and accidents, I thought it was time to explore a story about going to the vet.

Lynn's Comments: This was the diagnosis we were given when Farley (the real dog, Farley) began to limp and have trouble with stairs. Certain breeds of dog are more prone than others to this disorder. It's when the socket in the hip is not sufficiently bowl-shaped to hold and support the top of the femur, allowing it to slip out of place. Eventually, as the dog grows and becomes heavier, the ball of the femur slips right out of the hip joint--a painful and disabling problem. We were told that the breeder who sold us the dog was likely responsible for Farley's hip dysplasia.

Lynn's Comments: I waited in the clinic like a worried parent. (Here the story was about the imaginary Farley.) Our little spaniel was limping and fretful, but amazingly happy and easy to manage.

Lynn's Comments: What had happened was exactly this. The kids had been attaching streamers and other things to the dog’s legs using elastic bands. They had forgotten to take one of them off and the elastic worked its way down to the bone!

Doctors and veterinarians must think they've seen it all and then something like this comes along. We all felt so badly. The elastic was completely invisible in the dog’s thick fur. We had no idea what was hurting him.
