Doodles update

Doodles is at the vet, awaiting x-rays on his back legs. We saw the nicest, nicest vet yesterday, Dr. Taylor, and as it turns out, all 4 of Porter's legs are hurting him. Dr. Taylor said it was most likely (and I can't remember the actual name for it) growing pains, but that it can be quite painful & last for upwards of 8 months. I always wondered how Porter felt in his body because man, that dog grew fast! If it is growing pains, and that is the condition Dr. Taylor said we were hoping for, I guess that answers my question of whether or not it hurts his bones to grow so rapidly.

So, I will try to make it through today without crying, but it's not looking so good.
