Found Them

I knew I had photos of Riley jumping to catch her Frisbee.  This is how she fractured her hock.  I wanted to show you guys a long time ago, but could not find them.... they were in Seven's folder.
Riley used to leap into the air to catch the Zanie Flyer frisbee and land hind legs first.  I thought this was a good thing because it seemed easier on her toes... a very common source for greyhound injuries.  Well, not anymore!  The day she fractured her hock, she leaped up like she normally would.  The landing was not at all awkward.  The only difference was that I heard a little click and then she was dead lame.
Needless to say, I do not throw high anymore.
