Shelby is resting after a very hard evening yesterday. She was playing ball with Sid when all of a sudden she pulled up lame. The poor girl was limping around and allowing Sid to have all of the fun. Having seen this behavior before, I immediately picked her up and looked at her front paw. Once again, the stupid dewclaw was broken and bent to the side. A quick cut of the nail and I prayed for the best. It took a while, but she hobbled outside to do her business. As you can see, she slept with her eyes open for a while. This morning she was as good as new. If your dog starts limping, you should check their dewclaws. They get no contact with the ground and do not get to wear out naturally.
