As I have mentioned, I have a beautiful, crazy dachshund, Libby, who just turned a year old last week. She checked out healthy at eight weeks and, at every visit, the vet has said she was structurally sound. I'm pretty careful about how I carry her and how we play with her -- though she and my Hav do go at it with gusto!
This morning, when we got Libby out of her crate, she had difficulty standing on her hind legs. It was quite frightening. I took her out to go potty, and she just didn't want to stand up. I stayed home with her and, by late afternoon, she was running around again like she owned the world.
I know dachshunds, like Havs, can have leg/back problems, and I've been so careful about her weight because of that. Has anyone heard of a serious problem that comes and goes like that, or do you think it may have just been a temporary thing?
