Must Love Dogs

I have the picture in the previous post on the background of my computer at work.
Everyone at work makes fun of him and says his leg looks broke. Yesterday before I left the office My boss and Oscar were making fun of him. Well I go home… Riley runs down the stairs and falls on the last 2 of the first landing and he starts crying REALLY LOUD. He sat up and it looked like his leg was broke. I started freaking out and picked him up and he was still crying for a bit. I called my mom and she called my vet to see how long they were open and to let them know I was coming. Then she called Shu and told Shu to come pick me up to take Riley. She was there in 4 min. HAHA. We took Riley in and I guess they thought Shu was his mama. They kept talking to her and looking at her. I was like “ummm hellllooooo over here!!” They took him from me and felt around on his leg and he yelped a little. They did an x-ray and brought it back to show me and it wasn’t broken. But it was sprained. Poor guy L
They gave me some drops to put in his food for the pain. I got home and he just layed on the floor for awhile L I felt sorry for him. He tried to walk and he just hobbled. I put a pillow on the couch and layed him on that and he stayed there the whole time. I layed down beside him for awhile. I just felt so bad for him. I took him upstairs to bed and he stayed in the same spot all night. He didn’t want to get out of bed. I took him outside this morning (carried him downstairs and outside). He did his business then I took him back upstairs. I put him on the floor and he tried to hobble over to me.

I checked on him at lunch and he seemed to be doing better. He tried to run a bit and he runs more like a horse. He gallops. Haha. I think he’s going to make it. Last weekend was Megan & Kortney’s wedding, the weekend before that was Megan’s bachelorette party. I’ll post about that later when I have all of the pictures.
