Update:

So we went training this past Wednesday night and it was uneventful. Went on a lunchtime walk yesterday, again uneventful.

Started out on our walk last night about 10 pm and didn't even get a block away and had to come home because she started limping again on her left front leg.

She also was doing this weird thing with her head, kind of bobbing up and down. This really has me worried now.

I have an appointment this afternoon with the Chiropractor (she's also a doberman owner).

Back from the chiropractor. She said Sabrina's neck and back are fine, but that she jammed her right carpus (wrist).

She also noted that the side of her left paw was slightly swollen, and said it's probably a little arthritis.

She gave her a full body adjustment and told me rest her and give the anti-imflam meds through the weekend.

She explained that the up and down head bobbing was from compensating on her leg from the pain.

Rest again.... she's not going to be happy about that.

I will say though that Sabrina did seem to have a little more spring in her step after her treatment.
