One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Or in my case, one gettin outta da bed so I could drinks some more water and no steps da next morning.  Yup pals, I wuz startin to get better, limpin round da house and even puttin some weight on da bad leg.  Until I decided last night to go get outta bed to drink some water.


Dis mornin, I's back to not walkin AT ALL.  I had to be carried out in da rain to do my bizness dis mornin.  And when my momma just took me out again at halftime, she had to use a leash to hold up my hind end.  And I'd been doin so much better too - as I said, I had been walkin around ok.  Dis are what keeps happenin to me - I gets to feelin a lil better, den I go and re-injure my leg.  It are cuz I's a terrierist and us terrierists are stubborn.  And I wants my nighttime water and momma puttin me down in front of da water bowl to drink before bedtime are not enuf.  Now I are hearin talk bout how I might have to be crated at night if I keeps dis stuff up.  What da woof??  I has been sleepin in da bed wif my momma ever since I wuz housebroken!

I wuz sad to read dat my pretty lil pal Isadora had to go to da Rainbow Bridge dis week.  She sure wuz a cutie pie.

  4. Think about Isadora and how you don't want to see her real soon. Fight this like a terrierist and that also means being smart about it.

  12. Oh pal, sorry about Isadora :'( As for your legs, from one terrierist to the other, tell your Momma let u try Joint Guard supplement? It's tasteless powder form so you'd have no problem taking it with your food. Hope da legs getz better soon buddy!

  13. Whitley, from one terrier~ist to another, please let your leg get some rest. There is nothing wrong with sleeping in the kennel until it gets better. I'll bet you mom will put water right there for you to drink. I have to get in my kennel when Gramma & PawPaw leave cuz I go crazy over squirrels, delivery people, lizards...you get the idea. It's not so bad. XXOO Pierre ♥ P.S. I am so sorry about your friend.

  16. Oh Whitley, it seems that you have been making the same mistake Gail makes when she has an injury. When it starts to feel a bit better she starts rushing around forgetting that it is a long way from fully better and so it's back to square one. Do take care. Please.

  22. We are so sorry to hear about this! Our pawrents had a doggie named Reggie and he kept hurting his leggie and the dogtur said a surgery would be hard on him cuz he was so old BUTT he said that scar tissue would build up and make it more stable and it did! Get better fast and do what your mom says!
