Okay, so "nothing serious" turned out to be knee surgery for Bonnie on the 24th.
Thankfully, the vet at our little veterinary office in Athol can do it.
I would tell you what exactly is wrong with her knee but...
  1. I don't really want to think about it, because every time I do I think of how expensive the surgery is and groan inwardly and slap myself mentally,
  2. I get sympathy pains and talking or think about it makes my knee hurt, and
  3. To be completely honest, I can't really remember - she ruptured something.  I'm afraid I was so fascinated by the little knee model that the vet whipped out and started bending around, that everything else went out of my head.
I can tell you that the recovery period after the surgery will be 8 weeks. 
Yes, 8 weeks of keeping Bonnie, the hyper, maniac, energizer bunny dog, inside - in her crate no less - and taking her out on a leash for 5 min. walks several times a day. 
Most of all, I'm going to miss having my little dog with me when I do barn chores, and having her on my bed at night:(
Mournfully yours,
~me, myself, and I...and Bonnie~

Awwww... Poor Bonnie :( Poor Tasha :(
Well, at least you found out about it now, and the sooner she gets it done, the sooner it'll be over with and she can recover and get on with her energetic life.
That will be a tough 2 months though, cooped up. Hopefully after the first few weeks, she'll grow at least a little accustomed to the slower pace, enough to not drive herself (and everyone else!) crazy!

Ah, yes - poor me:( ;)
Yup, I'm glad we finally brought her to the vet's .  She's been limping for a while, but I thought, with all of the crazy stuff that she does outside, that she had just slightly sprained or pulled something.
lol.  I certainly hope so!  At least we have a crate for her, even though she hates it:)

Oh Tasha, I'm so sorry for you and Bonnie!  You'll be in my prayers.
 And I doubt not that Bonnie will be romping about in no time flat!
