I hurt myself last Sunday. I was jumping a creek and decided I didn't want to land where I was going to land so I decided to land somewhere else. My right rear leg didn't completely clear the bank and slipped down. I couldn't bend my leg or bring it in front of me so I was dragging it behind me.
My man got me stopped and started rubbing my leg for me. He was really upset so I finally told him to calm down and took off like nothing had happened.
My leg was pretty sore for a while though. I allowed an ice pack to be put on it for 15 minutes but that's all I allowed and I've been getting Arnica.
My people are watching for signs that I need to go back to my chiropractor.
Friday was my man's day off so we went to Cannon Beach for the day. It was warm and sunny and I played in the water for hours! We ate a late lunch that my woman had packed and drove home. I pretty much slept the whole way!
Thursday night my people asked me if I wanted to go to the ocean Friday. I said yes, duh!!! Then Friday I found out we were staying at the ocean for 2 nights!!!!!!!!!!
I thought we were going to Cannon Beach like usual but we went to the beach I really like in Newport and stayed in a house. The ocean was right across the street too. I got to see my 1st seal, it was weird so I avoided it, and got to play on the beach for hours and hours.
The house had a garage so I was able to eat my raw food in there just like at home and it had a window I could see out of while laying down like at home and the yard was fenced.
I got myself all exhausted and slept part of the way home!
Here are some pictures from my beach trip. I'll let you know when I get the rest of the pictures on here. They will be on the Trips page!
My birfday was Friday! I turned 6 years old. That's like 45 in people years. My woman says I'm still not old enough to drink though.
My people took me to the ocean even though it was windy and rainy and cold. It was so windy the seagulls were walking everywhere!
I had a lot of fun!!! I ran around in the water most of the time and chased my ball. We played for 90 minutes then worked our way back to the stairs.
After we got back to my car I got rinsed and dried off and we ate fish from a seafood place!
I slept a lot on the way home and then my people gave me a bath. Yuck!
I had calf ribs and elk for my birfday meal.
Saturday I swam at the dog pool. My people weren't sure how much swimming I'd do since I was still tired from the ocean but I swam the whole 45 minutes. After we got home I wanted to play in my pool but my people told me no so I fell asleep until dinner.
Sunday I only went for a couple of hours for my Sunday walk and hung out at home and slept. I got my present, a playground ball, since I wasn't too tired. After dinner we had a picnic and I got to go to Petco to watch the bunnies and ferrets!
I went to the back doctor and he took care of a few things I had going on. He said my pelvis was crooked so he straightened it, did stuff to my back and neck and shoulders. I felt so good I rolled over for him to give me belly monsters then got that look in my eyes, chewed on him and go the maddies as best I could!
He wants to see me 2 or 3 times a year unless I get really crazy like I sometimes do!
I like the trip out there. I barked at cows and saw alpacas and horses and I barked at the things my woman says are buffalo statues.
It was really warm this weekend so my POOL came out. I played in it 2 hours on Saturday and went through 6 full pools of water and a half full pool. Sunday I played for an hour until I fell asleep next to it with water still in it. Monday and Tuesday I played in it for 40 minutes before my man came home and an hour after dinner. Yesterday I played in it for 40 minutes before my man came home and only 15 minutes after he came home. Since I was getting bored we went for a walk and didn't get home until almost 9! My people said I can go for a walk again tonight since it's raining.
