What a big scare we just had. Came back from a long bush walk. All good until we were almost home. Then Georgia's back legs suddenly started to agitate her. She sat down, tried to lick or nibble something in her left back paw. (She's been doing that since Palm beach yesterday though there is no sign of injury.) She hobbled and fidgeted till we almost got to the front door. Suddenly, she ran off into a thicket of ginger and started rolling around, as if trying to dislodge something. Then, most scarily, she lay down by the side of the path and refused to get up. We panicked of course. I start googling vets in the area. Cushion started checking for ticks or bites. We thought maybe she could be overheated, though she wasn't panting hard or drooling. There was no hose or pump outside. So I started filling a big cooking pot with cold water and we poured it over her. Splashed her belly and head. That made her get up! Thank god. 5 pots, maybe 7 followed, to clean off the mud. We've checked her over a few times. Still can't see a thing. She's calm now and quite restored after some lemon drizzle cake.
A little less drama, Miss Pea. Please. At least until we get home to Dr Dog.
