Jasmine, my dog, is one of my biking buddies. We go on long rides together and I thoroughly enjoy her company but recently she started limping so I took her to the vet. They put her on some medicine but it got worse. I figured her biking days were over even though she's only 7. I took her back for better pain medicine and it turns out it wasn't arthritis after all, she tore her CCL (same thing as ACL in humans). Bad news is she needed surgery to repair it but the good news is that she should be limp free once this heals up. So now she is fresh out of surgery and I feel bad for her but I'm excited that I'll have more time with her as my biking buddy when the weather cools down again this fall.
