The Puppy and The Cast
Has accident often are.
The puppy is having her walk. She’s a cheerful little chocolate Labrador and jumping is one of her favourite things to do.
That, and grabbing her leash to play tug-of-war.
While trying to do both hobbies at the same time, the puppy landed on the icy street.
As she did a dozen times.
This time around, however, she broke her ankle.
We rushed to the vet emergency hospital and waited for nearly four hours, we finally learned she would need an operation.
Three days, an amount of money narrowing the 5 figures (thank goodness we have pet insurance!) and a purple cast later, we got the puppy back home.
As many of you dear fellow writers may know, a puppy is a lot of work.
Now, we have to work a little bit more, for the next five weeks anyway. Which means… a bit less time to write.
Puppy is now lying beside me, happily chewing a disgusting faux-bacon-smelling toy. We got a lot of those, among other distraction devices to keep dogs from boredom and the rest of the family sane!
Keep safe and may all the good words flow your way.
