that's what Boomer is since his tragic miscalculation jumping onto the sofa on Thursday night. There was a mad minute of screaming and dragging of hind quarters before I caught him coming around the dining room table. After some checking we determined that he wasn't broken but called the vet. After a few hours stay at the vet on Friday and an x-ray, we now know that there are no fractures but that he has hip dysplasia...he'll be confined for a week so his sore little muscles can heal and then he'll get some anti-arthritis meds for the rest of his days. sigh If you look carefully you'll see him in his crate being a nice little doggie. Sam has been on post, watching over him. I know he misses the daily play. Glad it's only a week. Last night I had a dream that I changed Boomer's name to Stuart. I've always disliked the name Boomer, it has always sounded like a disrespectful nickname to me. I would think that Stuart wouldn't sound much different to his ear and that I could pull it off...whatchu think?I've been working on my latest sock while keeping watch over the little doggie this weekend. It's not looking too bad. The color is a bit drab...goes with the January weather in W Mi. In the background you'll see Rita's yarn that will become Travelling Woman during the Ravelympics. I can't wait to get started with it...just about a month to wait...guess that's not so long.
And in the stupid things department...I'm having a little recovery of my own...yesterday I should have kept my eye on the ground while walking down the driveway to the mailbox. About 4 feet from the box I found myself suddenly lying on my back having hit my arm on the step and the back of my head on the driveway...fortunately I have 3 really sore places today but nothing broken...I didn't even get to do that hilariously funny "whoa-oa", just hit the ground, glad I'm so short so there wasn't so far to go to get to the ground, LOL
Have a great week, thanks for stopping and be careful on those icey spots!
ETA: had the wrong project listed for Ravelympics, gah!
