I don't have any new pics of walter in his playpen, so thought I'd post a pre-accident picture. this was taken just two weeks ago (I just got tears in my eyes...) when we were up at the lake. He is such a good rock climber. so powerful and loves nature. I PRAY he will be able to climb this same rock next year, please send us good wishes and prayers that his little bones will heal. There is still minimal movement in his legs, I try to visualize him running and jumping again, not confined to a bed.
The vet visit went well. He got a new pain patch, the nurse commented on how much better he looked, the doctor checked him and said it's the pain patch slowing down his bowels, and to be patient and give him organic mashed pumpkin. So we came home and took a long exhausted nap. I am just so grateful he's alive. Every time I feel forlorn or tired or angry, I just remember it's a miracle he's even here.
Please kiss all your pugs for us, and kiss their tiny ankles which work and keep them safe. and PLEASE please keep them on leashes, and nobody open the door like I did. Install fences, baby gates etc...nothing is worth going through what we're going through. I always meant to put a fence in the front yard and now I would give anything to go back in time...
so please all you wonderful pug owners, trust your instincts, listen to your fears and do that one thing you've been meaning to do TODAY. They are worth any effort, all money. xoxoxoxo
