Wussy Alert!

We had a little issue last night. Riley got excited, jumped up on me, fell and bumped her head. It didn't seem like anything at all (aside from the usual clumsy puppy). Half an hour later, my little girl laid down on her blanket and couldn't get back up. Her whole back leg was curled under her, and she wasn't able to uncoil it or stand up. Her whole body was shaking, because, of course, this really scared her.

Well, thank God for my husband, because I FREAKED! I burst into tears. I'd let her fall off me and something horrible has happened to my puppy! The husband, on the other hand, was calm and soothing and stretched her leg out manually and massaged all over her.

She popped RIGHT BACK UP! And started jumping and running around just like a happy little puppy should. I have no idea what happened, but she seems right as rain today. She PULLED me all over the lawn this morning, so her legs definitely seem fine. I might schedule a vet appointment this week just to check, but she's back to her usual self.

As I sighed a huge huff of stressful relief over not having to have an 8pm emergency vet visit, my husband teased me mercilessly for being such a wuss! Totally unhelpful to sit on the couch and cry instead of taking action. Yeah, yeah, I know. Mommy up!

I'm off to see what she's into. Have a great Sunday.


  1. Awwwww, poor puppy. And poor Brandy! I would have freaked out, too!

  2. Just totally unhelpful! She's happy playful pup today though. THANK GOD! No giving mama heart attacks!
