I am speechless. What happened?

She started limping at the age of about 1 1/2 years.  She had some bone growth innormalities.   The poor girl went through about 5 surgeries before the vets said they had nothing left to try.  That took about 5 1/2 years and a lot of money.  The Vet said it would be best if we just removed the leg since it was causing her pain and she stopped using it anyway.  She has more energy and can walk further then before the surgery so I would have to say it was a success. 

It is sad to watch her try to scratch the left side of her face with the right paw, she just can't reach..

With the smile on her face, it didn't appear to be bugging her. I was just at a loss for words. Sadly, what is sometimes best for our pets, usually hurts us more, in the beginning. It's my opinion that she (Sahara?) is lucky she chose you to be her people.

dizzy,
 
I'm glad she's feeling better, sorry she lost a leg.
 
A neighbors dog got hit by a car and lost his leg, he was fine with it and adapted quickly. The other dogs on the street were not fine with it, they kept attacking him. I guess they saw him as not right. Just a thought to keep a closer eye on her around other dogs. The neighbors dog couldn't really fight back because it was too easy to knock him over, it was sad.

The dog next door is the bigest thing on the block.  They are best friends.... No one is messin' with baby!

Dizzy,  glad to see that your dog is doing well.  I know she'll be back to normal in no time.  It always seems that things like this are harder on us then the pets.

Deucie reminds me of a dog we once had. She was a sausage roll too.
Food is an essential part of a balanced diet.
