I have a gorgeous Golden Retriever, she's everyones friend and loves walks, being outdoors etc. Unfortunately she has severe hip dysplacia and needs both hips doing. She is almost 3 and we have decided to get them done however I can't help feeling guilty knowing what she will go through. She will also be couped up in a crate for a month I presume and it breaks my heart as she might feel she has been naughty and is being punished. It upsets me knowing I have to put her through this.
