Thanks so much for your informed reply. I thought through some of what you
wrote and also thought it might be coincidental with a muscle strain. I
have been hitting tennis balls for her 80 yards out, which she races after
(I would estimate 25-30 mph or more)grabs the ball and trots back. I had
done this one day when she came back with the ball and staggered. I picked
her up and brought her into the house and got her cooled and calmed down.
That made me decide not to run her but short distances over the swale and
have shorter sessions. So, it is possible she strained a leg muscle with
these 30 yard dashes she was doing.
I noticed her leg is getting closer to the floor now and an hour ago she was
jumping at my broom with both legs on the ground but then hiked it up again.
I am optimistic that what you said about the inflammation going away might
be the solution. Thanks.
If she still has the problem I will take her to the vet in the morning.
