but we have managed to fatten her up (see the pudgy belly)
Well this week she chose to mis-behave and she is paying for it. We live in a somewhat rural area with 4 houses on our culdesac. It is very quiet during the day and we have no "fence" law and my girls stay in the yard (3 of them). An unfamiliar truck came down the street and she proceeded to let them know they didn't belong and was the victim of a fender to the booty. I was in the back of the house and I don't know who was screaming louder, Sweet Pea or the lady that hit her. I think Sweet Pea was in shock and the lady was screaming chasing her around the yard. I managed to catch her and she barely had a scrape on her knee but I could tell she was traumatized and was sure her hip was broken. So we raced to the doggie doctors, he took an x-ray and said she fractured her pelvic bone but her hip was fine. Phew ~ what a relief that was! He kept her overnight to sleep off her cocktail and I was pretty much ready for one myself!
She has been ordered by the doctor to be confined to her crate for 6 to 8 weeks so she can mend. So far she has been a trooper. Max has been trying to help out and brings her toys...
and tries to love on her
But she will be fine it will just take some time and LOTS of petting and lovin.
So my part is complete and has now moved on to having the label applied to the back and will be delivered to its rightful new home soon. I am so pleased with how it turned out and was glad that mom always knows best ;)
So hopefully in some off chance that one of our Presidents should ever visit again and has the opportunity to sleep under a quilt I participated in it's making I will just be tickled pink!
Thank you for the long visit and sharing in my FIRST double post! I love hearing your comments and meeting new people. If you get a chance go by and pay a visit to Dogs on Thursday and say hi to some of our other two legged and four legged friends!
Enjoy your day!
