Here's a post from whole four paw gang! We'll fill in for Momma Mary while she's propped up in bed icing her broken ankle. :0) Opps, maybe that should be :0(
First off, we defend Henry that it had to be a handler error that this awful accident ever happened. (BTW, we do have eye witnesses who will back up this claim!) Momma Mary doesn't remember the whole sequence of events...she mainly remembers her legs flying and the distinct crunch of bone. Henry, though remembers coming out of the agility tunnel, full blast of course because that's just how he does things, and there right in front of him was Momma Mary and he had no way to stop his momentum. So he took her out just like a bowling ball and pin. LOL, that's kind of funny to us!!
Okay, but to seriously sympathetic, we won't dwell on that comical image. However, when Henry is twitching in his sleep at naptime I think he's reliving the moment. But never mind that... The biggest thing, WOW, have things changed around here. We hardly get to see Momma Mary but we are sure seeing more of Katy, Charlie and Daddy Bill. They've been feeding us, letting us outside and filling in during Momma Mary's absence. How does their performance rate? Pretty darn good, they are talking care all the essentials, but us bullies haven't been on a walk since all this happened. That stinks!! Henry has been out and about with Katy....maybe for us bullies our walks will be this weekend. We so, so hope!
When Momma Mary first came home, we were a bit leery of the two peg things she hobbled around with and to be honest we are really not too sure of them yet. Then came the wheelie thing. Momma calls it Scooter Sally.
That's dad testing it out! Wish we could figure out a way to take those wheels for a spin. Momma can get going pretty good with it on the hardwood floors, and we are sure careful to stay out of her way!
Us, furry kids, don't really understand what all happened in the medical sense, but Momma Mary has a visual for us that she said we could use in the blog post. Funny thing is that Momma came across a blog from some Colorado dude who had almost the same exact injury and same broken bones only it was his right foot not left. But he had to have pins and plate put in to mend it all back together just like Momma will have (oh, he had a fun wheelie thing too). On Tuesday, this is what Momma's doc will be installing (see Colorado dude's image below..his foot, not Momma's but eerily the same location break and all). Ewwww, not sure about all that!
So there you be for an update from us pooches. Oh, Momma Mary says to be sure to thank all for their well wishes and support, especially to the other wonderful family humans...they've been pretty awesome!
More later. ~Otto, Maisy, Apple and Henry
