Kitty yoga? White Socks NEVER lies on her back like this. I think she's trying to imitate Wing Nut. This is what Wing Nut has been looking like the last few days.
Diva Dog napping? Don't let her fool you. This is one seriously stubborn GSD. Since Thursday she has been refusing to leave the house except for potty breaks.
Why are the critters acting so oddly? I think Wing Nut should tell you--the rest of the story.
What's wrong with this picture?
Wait a minute, those aren't Wellies. And those silver things are not garden implements. What's going on?
I (Wing Nut) had a bit of an accident this week. My right foot was squashed when a rack of potted plants tipped over and landed on it. Fortunately, I only broke one bone and it was a clean break. Things could have been much, much worse, and we are grateful that they weren't.
I'd like to say a HUGE thank you to all of my AWESOME co-workers and managers for scooping me up, giving me some ibuprofen, taping ice packs to my foot, and finding a pair of crutches within a matter of minutes. I'd also like to say a special thank you to MARY for shuttling me to the doctor, the pharmacy and then home, and for putting up with me while I tried not to freak out or fall apart too much.
So now I'm at home for a while -- eating, sleeping, taking pain meds, surrounding my foot with ice packs, and wearing this spiffy new boot.
Diva Dog is most supportive and loyal -- snuggling with me for my afternoon naps (of which there have been several the last few days).
But she is also being stubborn and not going for her afternoon walks with Curmudgeon! The weather is absolutely gorgeous this holiday weekend, and they could be having wonderful long walks to Fremont or Ballard. Instead, she's usually sleeping beside me while I'm stretched out with my foot raised on a pillow and covered in ice packs. What a great dog! An under-exercised dog, but a great dog!
I'm sad that we aren't enjoying family adventures this weekend like we did previous weekends. According to the tide charts, there was a really low tide yesterday morning. We could have had fun at the beach, playing on the sand flats. But no -- I'm homebound and not moving much.
Going back to work may be an adventure too. I'm allowed to do desk work, but the computers are all located upstairs. In a few days, I should be able to climb stairs, as long as I don't do it frequently. I'm also not sure how I'll get to work -- I broke my right foot and can't drive with the boot. There's no way I can do my regular job for a while --- 8 hours on my feet on concrete floors, running around stocking plants, unloading trucks, assisting customers and such. Sigh... this is not the summer adventure I wanted to have this year.
