Relief ! ! !
I took Bosley to the vet today to get his limping checked and it seems as if he has an injury to one of the pads on his paw. There is no cut, but his pad is swollen and bruised. He most likely stepped on something sharp when we were out walking. When you are walking in the prairie grass, it is not easy to see what might be on the ground. The vet said it is fine to take him for short walks or runs - the pad will just need time to heal. Other then that, he said Bosley's joints all seem fine and that he is in great shape overall. I am very relieved that it is not something more serious, there is always such a worry about joint issues when you have a large breed dog.
