Dad carried me into the vet and kept me in his arms the whole time we waited. It was nice but I was still scared and shaking some. The vet examined me and a nice assistant lady I hadn't met before helped. The vet asked to see me walk and this time he could see how lame I had become, so he was very concerned about my condition. Scary words were mentioned, as a Doxie the scariest of them all, disc disease, or a neck injury. The tests he did for those came back negative but it is still something to consider. The Lady then told him about how much I pulled when I walked, so much so that I wear a pinch collar. I can't wear a halter because I am impossible to walk wearing one. The vet suggested the Gentle Leader which mom had seen before and is not a fan of at all!

When the doctor mentioned a possible neck injury the Lady got a major case of the guilts. This is because she knows how bad I pull on the leash, when not wearing my pinch collar. At BlogPaws she didn't want me to wear the pinch collar, so I did a lot of pulling and straining there. She is very concerned she hurt me. Despite her misgivings about the Gentle Leader she did buy one for me. As soon as I am allowed to go on walks we are going to start training with that. We shall see, hmm?
