As you remember, I ran over my dog. Backed over her to be exact. She had surgery and was required to be on kennel rest for 6 weeks. At that point we took her to the vet for an x-ray. They determined that the leg needed a little more time before they did the surgery that would remove the pin. They did, however, allow her off kennel rest during the day. 4 more weeks have passed since then and it's time to schedule the pin removal. Here she is enjoying the good life on the farm.
