Things did not turn out as planned when Mommy came home from work yesterday. Mommy & I went straight out for a walk thru the trails in the woods. ½ mile from the house I just fell down, got up, limped, fell down again. Mommy couldn’t figure out on fast inspection what was wrong but she knew I could not continue. Mommy had to carry me home. With any other 30/40 pound dog this would not have been a problem, but with my belly button hernia & bad back it was a pretty big problem. 1st, I do not like to picked up and usually scream bloody murder, but over the years Mommy has figured out the perfect way to pick me up where I do not mind or fuss. But it is not easy on Mommy, in fact it’s very awkward for her. Once Mommy got me settled in her arms, we had to cut thru a neighbor’s backyard, the one yard that looks like they have not cleaned up after their dog in 3 years! Seriously, they was so much poop you could not even see grass and oh course Mommy had no way to avoid it, so her boats are layered in poop. (Mommy was furious at the thought of a dog having to come out here to do their business. She will be leaving them a “Shame On!” note!) Mommy was not only mumbling under her breath about the poop but the fact she forgot her cell phone. Mommy had to rest a couple times and reposition me in her arms, to save her back she lifted with her knees…that is a mistake she will pay for later. Funny how we always see neighbors driving by, they stop to chat, pet me, tell me how cute I look, but today it was as if the place was a ghost town. Mommy finally got me home and as soon as she put me down I attacked my front paw. Mommy really had to dig into my pad to find the sharp object that was embedded into my paw…once out, I ran into the front room to attack my Kong. Mommy relieved it was something so simply, she stood up and felt the pain shot thru her knee. Mommy was going to have to go to urgent care to get a shot because she knew she would not be able to walk by morning. She decided to take a quick shower and go…while in the shower I burst into the bathroom and tried to climb into the tub with Mommy. I was shaking, panting & terrified. That is when Mommy heard the smoke alarms going off. She jumped out of the tub and ripped them from the ceilings because there is one thing in life that scares me into an almost seizure like state and that is alarms. (Our alarms are electrical not battery operated)I was so upset I pooped. Once again today Mommy saved me…but her pain was getting worse and she had to leave me. She turned on the TV & radio to help calm me. On her way to the urgent care she was so guilt ridden about leaving me still somewhat upset she called our neighbor who I wuv and asked her to check on me. I was so happy to see Auntie Deb walk thru that door. She rubbed my belly and gave me a treat. By the time Mommy got back I was back to my silly happy self. What an evening! Mommy & I spent the rest of the night snuggle up on the chair under a blanket with Spitz.
