Knobby Kneed Stone

It always amazed us at the positions that Stone would get himself into.  In his younger days, he’d lay down with both front legs bent at the knees and tucked under his big broad chest.  He can’t seem to do that anymore.  Advanced age, arthritis and a recently sprained wrist have taken their tolls.  The sprain gave us quite  scare … at first it looked suspiciously like cancer.  Thankfully, the radiographs showed only a soft tissue sprain.  Several weeks on anti-inflammatories did the trick, but Stone still can’t move the way he used to.  But, for a 10 year old greyhound, he is doing pretty well.
