Apparently, she was panting a lot in the afternoon and didn't eat, which she usually does there, so he rang the vet and arranged to take her straight from work. When they got home, I saw my husband lift her gently from the car and place her on the ground rather than let her jump out like a 6 month puppy as she usually does . My heart sank as I wondered what had been said fearing it was her heart or something awful.
They came in and Bonnie, with tail wagging, went straight for a drink and then came to say hello to me. My husband trailed in after having put the car away and locking the garage. He had a face that looked rather dramatic and my heart sank some more. It turned out he was being a drama queen, because Bonnie had hurt her back and that's what the panting was for - it was nothing to do with her heart as we had feared. The vet said it is normal for dogs to pant a lot if they are in pain. Bless her, she was hurting and we didn't realise. She needs a couple of days not jumping up on her chair and all should then be back to normal.

How are we meant to keep her still and not jumping I have no idea. Think of a two year old and the energy they possess and you've got Bonnie summed up. Trying to keep a two year old quiet and peaceful is nigh on impossible and it'll be no different with our little girl. Whatever it takes we'll do it though as I am just so thrilled it is nothing serious and that she'll be back to normal soon.
