Because winter is steadily approaching (much to my dismay) we took advantage of the wonderful weather yesterday and had Marshmallow out on a nice long walk down at the river. (This was her first "major" outing since her ACL surgery a few months back) We did a LOT of walking, and she did a LOT of swimming. We found a HUGE log to throw out for her to bring back in (it probably weighed 5 lbs) and when she brought it in, she was chewing on it, and making these CRAZY whining/screeching noises while she was madly chewing on the wood while she was jumping on it. We'd pick it up, and she would start jumping around all excited, so I know she wasn't in any pain. My question is, is that noise normal? I have NEVER heard her do that before. After we stopped throwing it out, I had a hard time tearing her away from it so we could continue our walk.
My ex told me that she was limping a bit more than usual last night, so it seems like we may have over done it a bit. I wish that her drive wasn't so high, because after seeing how well she did yesterday, I realize now that they really will keep going until complete exhaustion. She never ONCE limped or stopped going the entire time I had her out. I guess the good thing is, she will now get a full 6 months of complete rest before we take her back out again (supposed to snow by the end of the week).
