Been out for a walk with Honey and she was fine. Now she is hobbling about and nursing one of her front legs. Have phoned for advice, but advice for the moment is rest and keep an eye on her, so that's my day out the window!

Hope she'll be OK!
The sight filled the northern sky; the imensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer. ~ Northern Lights
I cleaned and checked her pads and between toes for any objects, blood or anything else suspicious and the vet nurse got me to check for a number of things on top of that. I think she has had an awkward landing or something like that. She has a habit of running down the stairs, jumping off the bed and so on. It could even be from pulling on the lead when a dog near us was barking on the other side of a fence at her. She has just been out for the toilet and is starting to make a vague attempt to use her foot again. I think she has been over protective of it. She is still acting generally normal otherwise and wagging her tail excitedly when I give her attention, so she's not in any obvious distress.
Spoke to vet nurse again this morning. She seems happy with progress and says that as long as she keeps making progress and is starting to use it properly in 72 hours then it'll probably sort itself out.
Honey is still limping a fair bit, but touching her foot down every few steps and putting it down occasionally while eating.
She is still insisting on giving me her toys to play catch with her, even though she needs to not exert herself.
She is now getting more adept at moving about on three legs. When I took her out about an hour or so ago she was using her front legs, but almost together rather than more equally apart. She still wanted to go away from the house. She does not understand that she'll go back to how she was if she does not rest.
