|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.|
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

|Subject: Sore after a hike? Tue Dec 20, 2016 2:44 pm|| |
Went on a 7mile hike with around 2000ft elevation gain, on the way down Freya (4.5yrs old) started walking slower and needed more breaks. She has done longer hikes earlier this year with no problem. It has been a few months since our last hike but in the past she was always fine. The day after the hike she seemed extra tired and walked slowly when I took her out. Today she is still walking slower than usual when I take her out. Could her muscles be sore from the hike? She doesn't seem to have any injuries so I am thinking just muscle soreness, thoughts?

have you checked her pads? are they torn up or blistered? jack was a rock start up till about 2 yrs ago, now he crashes after a hike as well as the next day, he is 8 now.
if she is just slow vs favoring a leg she may just be sore and not injured, unless its her feet/pads.
try giving her a good massage over her body

Bet you're right Jenn. Maybe not even torn up, just worn from walking on the rocks - which will cause them to be sore. My aunts Irish setter loved to run with us when we walked on the rocks at "home" in upstate New York. He never tore them but after a day out you could see where the pad was worn - kinda saw a hint of red through the black pad. The question and your comment reminded me of them ... don't have pictures, just some great memories.

Thanks for the responses! 2 days later and she is back to her normal self. Must have been sore muscles. I make sure her pads are in good shape and use mushers secret if any problems arise
