Doggie Dilemma #8

OK to be honest, Monday I was just dang tired to post anything for Tuesday. I went to bed at 8:40pm. I know such an exciting life. Oh and R2 was laying in bed with me watching Phineas and Ferb.So you know I was tired if I went to bed with R2 in my bed and the TV on.

Anyway back to the doggie dilemma. Last night I was in the back yard watching R2 swim and Cookie wander off to take care of her business. When she came back she was limping on her right front paw.

Being the calm person I am, NOT! I started to freak out. Just like I do when something happens with the boys. Like the time R2 had to get three stitches and he was just 2 months shy of turning 2. So I walked over to her and picked her up and brought inside. I started to look at her paw and look in between the pads on her paws. I let her get up but she wouldn't even put an pressure on it at one point.

So I immediately called my friend Christi, who is my vet, the only thing is Christi lives in another city so she couldn't bring Cookie to see her. But I told her what was wrong and what she was doing.

She didn't seem to think it was an emergency as Cookie would let me touch it and straighten her leg out and so one. She thought she might have gotten stung or bit by a bug or even the hot ground might have gotten her as it's been 108 outside. She said to give her 25mg of Benadryl and then another dose tomorrow. Oh and also try to keep her off her leg as much as possible. That should be fun.

But right now she is laying in the recliner with me and sleeping.

I pray she will be fine. I don't like doggie dilemmas. They stress me out almost as much as when something happens to the boys. Guess that's because she's my furry kid.
