How To Scare The Mom and Dad

The Mom and Dad decided to do a little antique store looking this morning - so off they went WITHOUT me. I was not to happy being left with the dweeb but Mom did give us both a nice tasty bone to chomp on while they were gone.

When they came back an hour later Mom noticed straight away that I was on 3 feet instead of 4!  I was holding up my back right leg and wouldn't put it on the floor. Mom was all in a panic and called the vet straight away and we headed off to see him, (Yay - I got a car ride!)

Mr Vet checked all my toes and all my joints - he couldn't find anything. He checked my ligaments and muscles and no amount of prodding caused a single response. I am after all the MOST stoic doggie he has EVER met. So after scaring Mom and Dad (that will teach them for leaving me) it appears I may just have strained a muscel - probably from racing off the back deck to fast). I have some anti inflammatory pills and some pain medicine to take and he says if I am still favoring it on Monday to come back.

In the meantime I am just lazing around and enjoying LOTS of extra pampering - MOMMMMM bring me another cookie and add some cheese to it too!!!!!!!!!!


  1. I bet you strained it holding on too tightly to your bone, Reilly! Glad it's nothing major. Milk it!

  3. Milk it for all it's worth, Reilly! That will teach them!
    We hope your leg feels better quickly!
