This week, Steve and Hoppi brought me back to the big building with the nice human who will fix my leg. We waited for the main human to look at me. Steve scratched my haunches and off I went on another adventure.
I slept in one of their crates the night before they worked me. And then I remained for one more night before Steve and Hoppi came to bring me home. Like the last time I was in that building, I don’t remember much. They gave me some more of those goo-goo-goofy pills, I guess. Instead of my belly being sore, this time it’s one of my rear legs. I heard the human say something like, “Total tear of the ACL.”
I don’t think I’ll be jumping and spinning anytime soon. I miss our pet therapy visits and I want to be able to jump and play bow with my pup buds.
Have you ever had a challenge that got between where you were and what you wanted to do? That’s where I am now. But, knowing Steve and Hoppi, they have a plan for me to get back on all four paws.
Steve keeps telling me, “Roxie, it will happen. Small steps. Put one paw in front of the other and you will move toward what you desire. One paw at a time.”
With that kind of attitude, #iwillbeback!
One last thing. A hearty WOOF to all of you have reached out to me, Steve, and Hoppi with encouraging words. A few of you even dropped off a biscuit or two for me. You make me feel like a special pup. WOOF!
Thanks for coming back to my blog. You make me happier than biscuits!
My book, Roxie Looks for Purpose Beyond the Biscuit, is still available. I share stories and lessons about friends, family, and fun. And I speak about purpose as well. (Steve says for dogs we might just want to call it “furpose.” He makes words up, I think.) Perhaps the book holds a biscuit or two for you!
Oh, and if you get a chance take a look at Steve’s blog. He’s been writing that one for longer than I’ve been with him.
