Belle twisted her ankle!

Poor Belle. She twisted her paw the other day. I had a coat on her because it was so cold and she pulled her paw inside and some how hurt her little leg. She has been limping but will let me touch and move her leg and paw. She is no more protective of her hurt paw than her non hurt paw.
I started to give her aspirin tonight. I don't think she did more than strain her paw but if she is worse tomorrow I will be calling her vet.
She is still her happy self -which is a good sign.

Did you check her nails too? If a nail got caught up on something she could have jammed a toe or twisted it funny. I hope she's feeling better soon!

Aww poor puppy! Allie hurt her paw awhile back and was limping, we couldnt figure out why, we called the vet to make an appointment and the secretary lady basiclly said, unless you think its broken theres not much they can do. which isnt very helpful, but Allie was back to normal in a few days, i hope belle will recover soon

Thanks guys.
I took a look at her nails - they seem fine but if she banged one I can imagine it would hurt!
She is still limping but seems a little bit better. She is still letting us touch it all over and move it.
She likes the orange flavored aspirin. Frank said he wants some but I told him it's just for Belle.
