Chris, like very one mentioned it maybe nothing, or could be arthritis setting into the joints. I'd also check her nails, see if maybe she broke one. I will say I had a cocker spaniel, who was so overbred, she had bone deterioration very bad, and jumped off of my bed onto the floor, and broke a hip. I knew as soon as she landed it was serious, so it could be anything or nothing. I'd suggest checking her nails, and then wonder if it may arthritis. If it continues, and nothing makes sense, I'd definitely get her checked out by her vet. Definitely not trying to alarm you, but i've been at both sides of the spectrum. Just some ideas.

Punkin hurt his leg by doing his chicken scratch kicks, which he does everytime he does his business. It took a couple of days for his walking to get back to normal. Maybe Mabel injured it this way? There's plenty of other ways they can hurt themselves, even if they're not active ... like humans!

If she's pulling her leg away I would think she has some sort of pain there too. Sally has a section on her rear leg that she does not like stretched out, she yanks back pretty fast. Doesn't seem to be in pain so who knows what happened before we got her. Glad Mabel seems a bit better today.
