    I have an 8 week old GLW that has grown up to be very bow legged looking. It was not really noticeable until about 2 weeks ago. Her hips are set much wider apart than they should be and when she walks, she has to cross one foot over top of the other to stay balanced. It reminds of splayed leg, but in reverse. She runs around just fine though, keeps up with everyone else, but will she be able to continue this way? Or as she gets bigger will her legs give out on her?

    Is there anything I can do to "fix" the problem? I'm not sure that using something to pull her legs together would work, I think that would cause her legs to cross in an "X" and she wouldn't be able to walk. Thanks in advance for the help!
