Thank you to everyone for your kind replies after my horrible exsperience yesterday after my terrier dog Tess decided to run off and go home on her own whilst taking her for a walk.
It left me feeling totally drained and feeling quite I'll after trying to...walk trot stumble stop and trot again,it was awful that I am no longer to be able to move fast enough to catch up with her,I don't know why she done this,sadly for her the old girl...her not me...will have to stay on a lead.
It sad that some of the replies are at the stage know that what used to be such a lovely easy thing to go walking our dogs has become such a mammoth task.
I am most certainly hurting today,my ankles are so stiff walking is very difficult and I am drained of energy.
Thank you once again,tonight I shall certainly have the Epsom bath as suggested by Emma,I couldn't even climb into the bath last night!
