Vet news

I took Jo down to the orthopaedic vet this morning, and he thinks it's either a tear in the meniscus of the knee or (less likely) an inflamed tendon.

She's stayed in for surgery, and if it is the meniscus then he'll remove the damaged part and she should be better for two or three years, after which it will become painful (if she's still around).

Just as she'd finished growing her coat back, she'll be back to looking silly again. And then there will be the rehab.

Edit: it was a tear, she's out of surgery and waking up.
