Not an ambiturner

Our dog Lucy is old. I think this summer she'll be 13. In human years, this equates to 91.

Lucy has never had great strong legs -- her back knees have always been a bit off and her feet are little collie feet under a German Shepherd-like body. 

Now in her old age, she has good days and bad. Like humans, she wakes up with a crick in her neck sometimes. Today is one of those days.

The result is that she cannot turn left: Kind of like Derek Zoolander in the walk off. So now, if you call her to you from the wrong side, she has to make a circle to come see you.

And although it's kind of pathetic and obviously she is stiff and it hurts... it's still kind of funny.

I may have to have acupuncture done on her if the Rimadyl tablet doesn't straighten her out soon.
