Super Sad Corgi

Sad corgi.

Lance has IVDD, a slipped disc.  No idea how it happened.  On Sunday we enjoyed a gorgeous walk at the park, came home and he got to bark at the Toller running after a ball, and then we trained with dinner.  He even has teh cutest new trick of learning how to skip!

And then on Monday morning Lance was practically lame.  Very wobbly in the back end and can barely walk.  Back arched in pain.  Went to the vet and was diagnosed with IVDD and due to the fact that he still has some function in his back end we were recommended very strict crate rest for at least 6 weeks.  If he starts to lose any function of his rear legs then we rush to surgery immediately.

Sorry Lance.  He is now to be carefully carried anytime he is out of his crate.  Anyone who owns a corgi knows how awkward that is!

No National Obedience Championships for us.

Oh Lance :( I am so sorry to hear this, feel better soon buddy. Stinking crate rest....
And I'm sorry you two can't go to Nationals, that is the icing on the bummer cake. Ugh.

Oh no!!! That is awful!! I'm so glad he still has use of his rear end. I hope that means he heals up and doesn't have to have surgery. Fingers crossed for the sweet boy.
