Just wanted to share my Valentine's Day story with you all, even though it's not a very good story.
I was in the backyard on Valentine's Day, playing with my big brothers, Kobi and Tyler, and Mommy and Daddy were hanging out with us and doing some work on the agility weave poles and jumps. When all of a sudden we heard something in the front yard, so we all ran over to the corner of the fence where there was a big pile of leaves, and we were barking at whatever was out there. Well, then I ran back to Mommy with a trail of red stuff coming out of my foot! It was just pouring out, so Mommy had to grab some towels and wrap my foot up and hold some pressure on it to try to get it to stop bleeding. Then Daddy sat down on the ground with me and held me in his lap and held the towel on my leg while Mommy called my Vet. Then they loaded me up in the truck with the wet red towels still wrapped around my foot and drove me to the clinic. The lady there pulled the towels away and took a good luck at my foot and said that I'd punctured a hole in my foot and hit smack on the main blood vein in there! She said it wouldn't need any stitches, but she wrapped it up real good and told me I had to keep that wrap on there for 5 whole days!! And that I'd need to take some medicine too, to keep it from getting infected. Mommy thinks that when I was pouncing in the leaf pile that I must have landed on a stick just right to have poked a hole in my foot like that.
Well, I got back home and Mommy made me rest in my crate for awhile, and then she took me to Daddy's house to spend the night while Mommy had to work all night. I'm kind of a 'daddy's girl' anyway, so that was just fine by me!
So hopefully, my foot will be all better in a few days!
Hope everypup had a good Valentine's Day!
