I have had a two week blogging break but I’m hoping I am back to blogging now (and reading my friends’ blogs) with a combined “Furry friends” and “Future” post!
I am always busy but I’ve been very distracted Instagram and by my dog Coco’s back left leg. I was walking him one day and all of a sudden he barked and then sat on the sidewalk. I had to carry him home.
I thoroughly checked his paw, thinking something got stuck in it, but I couldn’t find anything. The next day, our vet told us he tore the ligaments in his knee and would require surgery.
We had noticed that he would fall once in a while, but with all the running around, we didn’t think it was anything serious. I guess we weren’t paying enough attention.
I changed his diet to a vegetarian diet, full of sweet potatoes to ease the swelling. His leg isn’t perfect, so he still limps and falls sometimes, but he’s walking a lot and even runs sometimes. He’s so full of energy. Fortunately we never allowed him to become overweight, which would have put a lot more stress on his fragile legs.
Was the vet wrong that he needed surgery? I don’t know. Only time will tell…
Some of us are full of optimism for what the future holds and others are full of pessimism. Some people live for the weekends and others are waiting for retirement… but we don’t know what’s ahead for us, even just five minutes ahead. Coco’s problem came suddenly. The time to find happiness is now. Of course this wasn’t my grand awakening and I’m sure you’ve heard this many times before. It’s just another reminder with an example attached.
So hopefully I can get my interest back into blogging and I promise to catch up on everyone’s posts.)
And I hope you participate in the Sunday Stills Challenge!
