My Mama Loves Me!

Man, oh, mama must really love me. For two days now she has carried me around wherever she goes. You see, it all began Friday night when she got home from a week vacation. I was so excited to see her that I was jumping up and down - up and down - up and down from the bed. I must've hurt my lil' leg on one of those jumps...

My right back "heel" hurt a whole lot. It is swollen about twice as big as the other "heel".

I guess my mama thought I'd get better over the weekend...and I did...a little, but not enough. So today she took me to the vet. I love car rides - even to the doggy hospital. :)

Dr. Randy said I needed an x-ray. So off the vet tech took me the x-ray room. They wouldn't let mama come in there with me, but she could take my pic from the doorway. It was dark in there.

Then Dr. Randy laid me on this really hard bed. (I'm sure glad mama's bed at home is soft.) He wore a heavy blue apron...not me though! Dr. Randy was very gentle with my lil' leg. :)

Afterwards Dr. Randy showed my mama the picture he took of my leg. The good news is it isn't broken! :) The bad news is it is tendonitis (what would be the Achille's Heel on you humans) and could take 6 - 8 weeks to heal completely. Mama has to carry be for at least a week or two - no walking, running, or jumping.

If it's not getting better by Wednesday (day after tomorrow) mama has to take me back and I may have to get a cast. No weight on my leg or bending/flexing it. :(

Yep, my mama must really love me! And so does my buddy Belle. She stays right beside me and keeps me company. What more could anyone ask for?

Hug your four-legged friends today, Roxy xoxo
