Sometimes she hangs around the house, and sometimes she hobbles up the road to stay with Martin for a few days. If she stays away too long, her arthritis acts up and she is in obvious pain when she returns. Yes, a three-legged dog can "limp." When she's home I feed her glucosamine every night before going to bed. Having three legs is enough of a challenge without adding joint pain and stiffness. She's ten years old now and been without her right front leg for nine of them. She's a trooper and she doesn't complain. I could learn a thing or two from her.
