Slip Sliding - Kaboom!

We had just enough snow here that the roads became quite slippery. Some cars were wobbling all over the road.
Our street was like a skating rink, too.
So growlmy put on the snow boots, cause they have good treads on them...and bundled us both up...and off we went...after about 1/8th mile...we had just started...growlmy was getting concerned, cause the road was just way too icy.But she knew the highway a bit further would be off we went slip-sliding along...

Then Kaboom!

Growlmy slipped and crashed;
She fell hard on her keister;
It was a big ouch!

She fell so hard that she dropped the flexi leash. So now not only was she flat in the road, I was loose.
Well she ordered me to stay put, which by the way I was already doing, because that flexi leash makes a big noise when it hits the ground...then it whooshes right up to the end of the I was startled and really was not planning on running away! I was staring at growlmy wondering why evfur she was taking a lay down while we were supposed to be walking...and then I heard her whining and whimpering like a wee puppy.

But she stirred herself to a sitting mode, and then eventually she slowly got up...and picked up my leash again. Then she did a lot of rubbing and flexing of her poor battered body...she was hoping to not find any broken parts!

And thankfully we could continue on...but all day I have been wondering why she moves so slowly...and groans a lot when she wants to sit down on her keister...I thought sitting in chairs did not hurt peeps?

Growlmy swears she is going to hunt down some of those things you can put on shoes/boots that keep you from slipping, sort of like cleats.

She doesn't want/need a repeat performance! Good grief, winter is just starting out!
At least mostly I don't have too much trouble with this sliding/slipping stuff, cause I walk with all 4's!

At least the sun has been out fur a bit to melt away some of that icy stuff...but more snow is in the forecast!
Be carefur, growlmy!
She really does not want to have to put my strolls on a holding I think that those cleats will be part of her getting ready routine, furry soon!


PS:...note from growlmy:
Other than some big bruises I am fine, if rather stiff. Hope this doesn't happen again!

Please be careful out there
on the slippery stuff. Awful
