Fox/Willow/Watertown/Leaf Loop w/Daisy: 4.04 miles, 1:06:10, 3.7 mph, HR=109. We took Gracie to the Vet this morning. She’s got a torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament. There is also some hip dysplasia/arthritis. Surgery would require three good legs and good hips, so that’s not an option. She’s back to 150 mg of Rimadyl/day and reduced rations and activity. I will explore the option of some sort of knee brace. We’ll accommodate her as best we can for as long as she seems happy/content.
