The Dish From the Dog

The Daily Dog: I’m Baaaack! May 21, 2007

Woof to you,

It’s been a long time since I got to write to you all. My Humom, who is my hands and fingers, did a flip on the ice in February, fractured her foot and got 3 of her neck discs all out of alignment. (these are cushions for the bones in the neck.)

So it was a long recovery for her…and me too.

I was very patient and stayed near her everyday to keep her company. I think it was hard for her not to be able to write for me…and for her own self.

She is lucky like me though. She has lots of good friends to cheer her up and remind her that nothing lasts forever and good change will come along just when you least expect it.

She will help me write again and we will keep things short for a while. Don’t want to overdue it. I want to let her get her muscles all toned back up a little at a time.

Just like walking a puppy. Got to go slower til you pick up speed. She says it’s balance. You know, like play some, run some, eat, nap under the shade tree…some of this and some of that.

Balance…Just the thing I didn’t have when I tried to go upstairs for company one rainy night.  It was pretty windy outside and spooky sounding.

Mr. Grey and Annabel Kitty were all tucked into their sleepy box on the porch so you could hardly see them.  I was feeling a little lonely and I didn’t like the night noises.

Well, it took me a long time to climb each step gingerly to get to the top landing with my old creaky bones and when I got there, I found that I couldn’t get back down. I forgot that I had already fallen down the stairs once before when I tried to follow Tom. Oops.

I crept into the bedroom as quietly as I could; pitty patting, scooching, slinking so as not to wake anyone up but my Humom sat straight up in bed with a “Who’s there?” surprise. It seemed my toenails made scritchy scratchy sounds on the wood floor, so she heard me anyway.  I sounded like two people tap dancing in the dark.

I stuck my nose under the bed to be nearest in the stormy night.

Tom had to carry me down the stairs in the morning.

And I am no small dog!

I love my humans.

    Hey Bailley,
    great to have you back, and your writing Humom! I know all about helping pups up and down the stairs! I even ‘invented’ a special padded slide on which I’d load my White and then pull him up the ramp. He was too heavy for me. And, oh yes, those nails will give you away everytime. Sounds like both you and your Humom need to take good care of yourselves!
    Lots of loving fusses and belly rubs to you! Woof!
