Meg: a border collie x springer with stiff legs
Having an energetic Border Collie X Springer is a joy!
Meg was 9 weeks old when we rescued her from a local rescue centre in Biggin Hill, Kent, in September 2002. A little ball of black and white fluff running around, she settled into family life very well.
In March of 2003, our 8 half year old daughter was diagnosed with Leukaemia, which meant me staying in hospital for lengthy periods of time. Along with the rest of the family, Meg was looked after by family and friends in my absence. Each time we returned home her greeting to us was worth so much, especially to my daughter. Infact, Meg had such a special place in Emma’s heart she carried a photo of Meg into some of her procedures, which seemed to help, taking Emma’s mind off of what was actually happening!
After two and a half years, in 2006 Emma finished her treatment and was given the ‘all clear’. A further three and a half years on she continues to do very well and each yearly check-up is another milestone. Throughout this journey Meg has been there with her waggy tail and ever smiley disposition.
I had noticed in the last eighteen months, Meg had started to get siff in one of her back legs especially after exercising. Concerned by this I had tried to rest her, but of course this is no easy task!
I went along to Discover Dogs at Earls Court in October of last year where I met Pooch & Mutt.
Chatting over Meg’s problem ‘Mobile Bones‘ was suggested and rather sceptically I bought a pouch.
Within 10 days of adding Mobile Bones‘ to Meg’s food daily she was like a different dog.
Meg is now seven and a half years old and still behaves like a youngster with our fifteen month old Ladrador X Finn. She chases him round the park, having such fun with no lameness Friends have commented on the difference.
Thank you ‘Pooch and Mutt’ for the magic formula that is Mobile Bones‘!
