Mom and Pop babysat me and Brylee tonight. We both napped. Most of the time, she makes more noise that I do. I go outside to do my business–she goes right in her pants–ewwww! However, I think she is pretty great and look forward to growing up together as pals.
Today I just laid around and enjoyed the friendship and love of my family. It is important to just sit back sometimes and reflect on how lucky we are to have friends and family that love us. Healing will come with some time but irregardless, I am one lucky dog.
Today I’m continuing to learn to be brave and patient. I have been poked, prodded and tested yet they still are not sure what is wrong with me. I AM better…taking things one day at a time. I saw Mom this morning and gave her puppy kisses and we went for a short walk. I’m definitely not back to normal, and plan to be at the hospital through the weekend now, but there is improvement. Bottom line: I am one sick fella and just need to be patient with myself and the folks that are trying to help me. There is a good lesson in that…
Upside? I have a FANTASTIC vet and staff caring for me! Dr. Bogue is wrapped around my paw. She even took me home to love on me last night so that I wasn’t kenneled and alone at the hospital. She said she didn’t want me to have a bad vet experiene so young. Ahhhhh another sucker for my cuteness!
PS–the cone is just so that I won’t mess with my IV port.
So, my brother was spending the night last night and we had a great time. I had been looking forward to it alllllll week! All was perfect until this
morning–I walked out of my kennel and realized that my foot hurt–it hurt a lot. I have no idea what happened or how I did this, but OUCH! Mom took me to the doctor and, get this, I broke my TOE! No big deal, right? WRONG! I am growing so fast and the break is on a growth plate soooooo we have to be really careful with it or it can mess up my foot forever. Greeeeaaaattt! I wanted to play with Cooper and now I am just zoned out and woozy from the drugs.
Well, glass half full? 1) I get to lay inside with family 2) If i make a sound my peeps jump up and wait on me hand and foot. 3) All the ladies love a wounded puppy4) It could have been worse.
