I'm To Blame, But Boy Does It Hurt!


Recommended Posts

I usually don't walk my recently adopted 2-year-old hyperactive female grey Sheba because I've had great luck frequently using the local dog park (very few dogs there when I go and all play well together). The few times I've walked her she did fine. When walking her March 5 and not paying enough attention to our surroundings, she bolted for a squirrel, I flew out of my shoes, she was loose, and I landed very hard on my left knee and shoulder. I luckily managed to catch up with her but knew I needed a trip to the ER for my shoulder. Fractured the upper arm bone below the socket. Gimpy knee. Have to schedule an orthopaedic appointment but probably will be in a sling for many weeks until it heals. I'm mad at myself for not being prepared and just want to alert other new owners to take care. Lesson learned the hard way.

OUCH!

 

I hope you heal quickly and well.

 

I'm relieved that you were able to catch Sheba.

Oh, no! ohmy.gif I had a similar experience with mine when they first came home - I really thought I was gonna go flying after them, but I was luckier than you and managed to hang on and stay upright!

 

Even now that they're not newbies, with Spring approaching we have crazy squirrels all over the place (and stupid enough to run right in front of us!) - it's good to be on guard right now!

 

So glad you were able to catch up with your pup quickly and hope you have a speedy recovery :grouphug

Ouchy! I'm so sorry! How very painful. I hope you heal soon!

Edited because I had "heel" for "heal" and I really was talking to you, the person, and not puppy dog :lol .
