I returned the call and was told that Dylan needed to be X-rayed. That this would happen on Saturday, but she needed to be brought up on Friday. I guess my questions was, she was there for a week, why not do this when she was there? We were informed that the dogs need to be doped up and the technician is only there are certain days. So three dogs are going up to be X-rayed and Dylan is one of them. The reasons are varied. Dylan has not been spade, which means she could be considered a breeder. Two, they are always on the look out for hip dysplasia. This problem is the biggest reason dogs are career changed out of the program.
But, after a week away, we were missing our little girl and it was great to be able to cradle her. She continues to have a rash inside her paws which requires swabs of medicine to be applied and socks put on her to keep her from licking them.

Her skills are getting better as she gets a bit older. Barking still seems to be an issue but we're working on it.
So we'll take her up Friday and see what the X-rays reveal and hope for the best.
