This is what happens when you play with the big dogs. Last night Annie and her fur buddy Tasha slammed into the side of my knee. That's 150 pounds of mass hitting my knee. There is a 75% torn muscle. Since I still have to walk Annie it was decided I should wear a brace for the next 4-6 weeks. One to help speed the recovery time and two prevent more damage. So not only do I have to wear the brace but I have to go out and buy some skirts to fit over the brace. Clothes shopping is not a favorite past time for me.
