Two lame dogs

Well, just before we’re going to leave on vacation (Wednesday morning we’re headed for Hawaii) both our dogs decided to come up lame.  Yesterday when Megan jumped up on the couch with me she yelped.  Now she won’t jump up on the bed or couch.  Otherwise, she seems fine.  No limping.  She can run and wrestle.  She just won’t jump.  This morning, Shelby stopped putting any weight on her right hind leg.  She is just hopping around on three legs.  She is not crying.  She seems her happy self.  She is eating food and treats just fine.  She jumps up and down off of things, but just continues to favor the leg.  I have given them both doses of baby aspirin and am watching for now.  If this is still happening on Monday it’s off to the vet.
