I didn’t enjoy having to get these done. But I have to admit: I love looking at these x-rays. It’s the inside of my dog!
These are the adorable Boston terrier x-rays I mentioned in a previous post. The vet says these x-rays point to a likely congenital back issue — somewhere before the apex of her spine, closer to her neck, a couple vertebrae are too close together.
Despite the so-so news found in these images, I love how much it looks like her. In the image above, note the bones in the base of her — i.e. pretty much entire — tail.
How very symmetrical we are. In this second image, it looks like she’s lying down on her underside based on the bending of her front legs. Cute: I think you can see her right ear flapping into the top of the x-ray.
She thanks all of you for your well wishes, by the way. She’s enjoying painkillers hidden in cheese, she’s scarfing organic boiled chicken, and she somehow finds time to seek/acquire attention.
