As I keep mentioning, we've been "resting" Shyla due to a bone lesion for 4 weeks now. "Resting" means that she takes shortish walks on a leash. Consequently, she hasn't gone on any long hikes or done any running in a month. I had hoped that she'd be able to do some fun excursions in Utah. Alas, she couldn't.
While we were in Utah, I took one of my favorite rides up to a 2000' cliff by myself. K used to join me on this ride. Don't worry, she was always on leash close to the cliff.
We still don't know what the lesion is... because the experts haven't sent us a report yet. We're bugging them daily, asking for the report. I can only hope that their slowness means that they don't think that the lesion looks alarming (but it could mean that they haven't looked at the x-rays yet). Moreover, my family vet assured me that, even if the lesion is something evil, a little bit of running probably won't hurt Shyla in the long term now that the limp is gone.
Have a great weekend!
