Another of the nine lives used up for the Baron............

My biggest fear for Charles le Baron is that he would ever injure his one good leg at the back. This is the one that takes all the weight of his back end.

Yesterday he dragged himself inside the chateau in terrible pain using the amputated stump leg with the good leg dragging behind him. We had no idea what had happened , there were no marks and the good leg was swollen and getting bigger.

We rushed him to the vets and she told us that if it was broken or fractured there wasn`t much hope for him as he couldn`t manage to be in plaster for 6 weeks and not be able to walk. There would be no way to support his back end.

We were told that they would x-ray him and do what they could and would ring us as soon as possible.

I have spent a long sleepless night worrying and expecting the worst.

This morning the phone rang early to say that there is no break or fracture and it would just be a matter of time and rest.

We have just arrived home with him and he came out of the cat basket walking normally as ever on his 3 legs!!! He ate his food and went outside to terrorise what he could find!!!

HONESTLY!!!!! I have been frantic all night long!

Thank heavens my boy is home!

  1. This story reminded me of my much loved and sadly now departed english bull terrier. He was always getting into scrapes and we spent a fortune at the vets only to get home and he was right as rain!! we learnt to give him 24 hours before the vets visit which saved us loads....he lived to be 13 and 4 years on I still miss him every day...xx

  2. MEN, can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em. Dang that cat!! LOL

  3. Kids and animals - both expensive and a pain in the **** at times - but life would be boring without them! (Just a thought, but can I include my wife in that list?) Glad he lives to terrorise another day.

  4. Shirley: God Bless little Charles le Baron! Prayers to St. Francis that he stays safe!!
    Blessings and hugs,
    Sheila and Sherrill
