Amelia Aireheart was named after the famous woman pilot because Amelia also flew around the agility runs. During the past year, Amelia has had many changes in her life. In January, she had knee surgery. Her Mom was diagnosed with cancer and lost that battle in September.
Her Dad moved to Colorado and could not take her with so she is back at Camp Lackner after seven years.
One would never guess her age as she is energetic despite the severe arthritis in the knee which had surgery. When the surgery is done there is a lot of time involved in rehab so the knee remains fluid and not become arthritic. When the exercises are not done, arthritis takes over in the knee. She is now on anti-inflammatory drugs and that has made a world of difference. She will have to stay on that for the rest of her life. Despite the pain she has had, she is a happy girl who loves her toys and people. She does OK with larger dogs but not with smaller dogs or cats. Walking would be her best exercise as well as a diet to lower her weight.
