I did notice at the very start of the first video that she did a toe curl and held up her right leg while taking a pee. Everything else I noticed was very slight hesitation with her left footing but since you mention that she had a small cut on her left leg (foot?), that would explain the hesitation and the very slight lack of weight bearing when she was at the water dish.

I'm glad Sharon saw this and I agree with her assessment too. There is a very slight timing lag and lack of smoothness with Floozie's left leg – if you compare her movement to where Mindy is walking away from the camera, you will see that Mindy's movement is very smooth, timing of feet touching the ground is consistent and her feet placement/tracking is very consistent also. What is weird though is that both Sharon and I are spotting her left leg being "off" but it was her right leg that was being held up the other day?
*edit* Just saw your reply and I think the osteopath will be the way to go – I've been trying to find one in SF...
