My poor Sydney has injured his back again. The vet said he's got some sort of pinched nerve along his spinal cord and has to take medicine for the next two weeks. He's also restricted to a dog cage, unless he's sitting on one of our laps, because he can't run or jump until his back heals completely. This is going to make it tough for him to discipline the neighbors and any other citizens that make the mistake of walking in view of our house. Sydney loves to bark and chase them down, don'tcha know. He had to have a shot of cortisone today to get him started down the path of healing and he's been kind of sad looking and listless ever since. Bless his heart...I'm hoping he starts feeling better soon.
