Somebody had to go to the doctor today!

Princess (the pug) knew something was up when I told her "Come on, let go bye bye". She loves to ride in the car. She I know she felt something was just not right!

She was a little apprehensive once we were at the doctor and in the exam room...

perhaps a bit relaxed even...

Once the old girl got her allergy shot she was ready to head back home.

I asked the vet to take a look at her hips since she will just be standing and her hind leg(s) gives out. He did tell us that she doesn't seem to have arthritis but in fact a slipped disc in her lower back. He did not recommend surgery at this point since she just turned 8 years old. But he referred us to a Doggy Chiropractor. Uhh yeah the closest one is 1 hour (one way) away! :O I am unsure of how we will treat the slipped disc. Right
now she is resting more comfortably in her bean bag chair.


Happy doggy dreams old girl!

She is cute! Isn't it funny when you ask them a question, and you almost see a smile. Cracks me up.
