Chillin in her crate.
Our Cami girl is 10 years and 9 months old. We have known she's had some issues with her joints the last few years, but she will have a spell then bounce back. However this winter has been really hard and cold around here with lots of snow to manuver. She is again having greater issues worse than ever before. She doesn't put much weight on her right rear leg anymore, and if you lift her left leg up she falls over unable to support herself with only her right leg. Not only do both hips have arthritis, but now she has thickening in her right knee also. She is now residing in the nice warm house with her favorite body pillow to cushion her joints. We have her on some pain meds, but don't see alot of difference. She stumbles and slips from time to time, but still can get up to a slow trot if motivated properly (this means for food). Anyway we have her crate set up since last time she was in the house alone she ate my dress boots. Her pillow is in there and she happily spends most of her day in there sleeping with her door open so she can come and go freely. We are hoping to keep her comfortable, and hoping we have alot more time with her, only time will tell however. Until then she can rest on her favorite pillow.
