something is wrong with dolores' front right leg. in the middle of the night last night she started yelping and so david threw back the covers and went to see if i dont know, she had to randomly go to the bathroom or something. he comes back up 10 minutes later saying she won't put any weight on one of her legs. we fall back to sleep but hear her periodically whimpering throughout the night, david checks on her a few more times. today i wake up and sure enough she still won't put any weight on that leg. i have NO idea what is going on. i thought it might be because she fell into a hole yesterday at the garden (while running) but she spent HOURS playing, walking, running, and romping with us and other dogs in the afternoon and evening before she was crated. and it really sucks because we've had some bills come in that are atypical (like our new cable, they charge you two months and for the installation and rental fee of the box - it wound up being +$200) so we are really low on funds so i can't pop her over to the vet until late next week at the earliest when david gets paid on wednesday. FUDGE. i feel so bad for her! it is definitely her "elbow" area because upon palpation she winces and nips. what the heck in the world?
