This morning we borrowed a large kennel from the Well Mannered Dog Center. When I called and told the owner what had happened, she was so upset. She said anything she can do to help, just let her know. So, we asked about a kennel and she was glad to let us use it. Since his "condo" is hard flooring that might be slippery, we thought the kennel in the living room would be best for him for a few days.
We picked Gizmo up around 3pm today. The first thing we heard from the girl who took care of him was "your dog is a wimp" - with a smile on her face. She thought it was pretty funny. She said she fed him this morning and put his bowl up a little so he wouldn't knock it over in the kennel. She walked out and heard this sound; wasn't sure what it was - not really a whine, but almost. She came back and pushed his food toward him a little. He grabbed the bowl with his paw, pulled it toward him more and chowed down. Too funny! He knows how to get sympathy!
Whe they brought him out to us, he walked (hobbled) on his three good legs to us. He was very happy to see us, but not wild. Then we went outside and pottied; he must've been saving it all day! LOL He was very ready to go home. They gave us a cone for "just in case". He hadn't been bothering the leg, but who knows what he will do later.
We lifted him intot he back of the SUV but couldn't get him to lay down. He really has to think about it. Finally, the girl who had been taking care of him this morning came out and got him to lay down. We stopped and got a can of dog food to help administer his meds and then came home. He walked around the yard for a couple seconds, then came in the house.
Once in he let me hug him while I sat on the footstool. He just LEANED into me. So glad to be home. Then he got his favorite treat - a Popsicle!!! Is he just a little spoiled????? NO - he is a LOT spoiled! LOL He has walked a little, but we had him lay back down. I took a few photos and will post them. He is resting now.
