Poor Mom

Hey everybody! Hope you had a safe New Year's! I'm a little behind because I've still been recovering from Christmas and then I was busy last week, too! It snowed yesterday a lot and I have pictures to show you but I'll show those to you tomorrow.
New Year's Day I went to work with Dad for awhile to help him get some end of the year stuff done. I got bored and so Mom had to come get me. I've decided the auto parts business is not for me. Mom said maybe if there was a couch to sleep on all day I would have done better. I'm not sure what she meant by that, but I don't think it was a nice thing. Then the next day Mom had to go back to work and Dad took me outside to play with my tennis ball throwing thingy ouside the fence so I got to run the full length of our acre. I love that game!!!! Then Dad worked in the shop all day.
This is the poor Mom part. On Sunday Mom, Sasha and I were playing in the living room and all of a sudden Sasha started screaming and crying. We've never heard her scream like that before so Mom and I both freaked out a little. I just stood there and didn't know what to do until Mom went running to Sasha and picked her up and held her until she stopped crying and then when Mom went to put her down, she noticed her t-shirt was covered in blood. That's when Mom went into panic Mom mode (I know you all know what I'm talking about). There was no way to call Dad into help because it was snowing so much and Mom would have had to put shoes on and that meant putting Sasha down and there was no way anybody was going to pry Sasha out of Mom's arms at that moment. We also didn't know where Grandma was. So Mom and I ran to the back bathroom and washed Sasha's paw off and figured out somehow when Sasha was running she split her nail. Mom was sure she had sliced her food open with the amount of blood. Mom was freaking out because there was so much blood and Sasha's just a little dog. Mom grabbed the bandage box and we went to the kitchen (I was following Mom very close through all this). The kitchen sink area was a lot easier to work in since the counter area was so much bigger (we won't get into the reason Mom didn't go in the main bathroom where the light was better and the counter area was a good size). Mom put cold water on Sasha's food to try to stop the bleeding and to figure out how to get a bandage on it by herself. Mom said she didn't even remember me being in the kitchen but Grandma tripped over me when she finally came in the house and went to her room. Sasha was a very good girl and stood onthe counter with her foot up in the air so she wouldn't get blood all over the kitchen counter and so that Mom could put a bandage on her. Once the bandage was on, we all went to the living room and sat on the couch so that Mom's heart would start beating regualr again. Sasha laid on the couch and Mom rubbed her belly and I sniffed her nose and whined and when Mom decided the bleeding had finally stopped, she let Sasha walk around. She limps a little, but she doesn't whine or cry which makes Mom feel a little better about it. I had to give Mom lots of hugs and kisses to make sure she was okay, too. Her face finally turned back to it's normal color and I pointed out that she needed to do something about her clothes. I went and kept an eye on Sasha while Mom cleaned the blood out of her shirt and her pants. She put her comfy clothes on and I curled up on the couch with her and watched tv for awhile. Dad says they are going to look for a phone that has an intercom on it, too so that Mom can call for him if he's out in the shop working and she needs him.
In a couple weekends Mom and Dad are going away for the weekend for Dad's work and now Mom is REALLY worried about us. I keep telling her I'll take care of everything, but you know how Mom's get after their babies are hurt. Sasha is doing good. She's limping still but still hasn't yelped or whined. Tonight Mom is going to give her some magic cheese to help her get comfy for bed time. Sasha doesn't like the snow anyway because it makes her joints hurt and as much snow as we got, it makes her REALLY cold so Sasha had a really hard time getting comfy with the cold and her foot hurting. Mom is doing much better now, too. She said once her heart started beating at it's normal beat and she started breathing normal, she didnt feel liek passing out anymore. Watching Sasha limp makes Mom sad, but she keeps reminding her self that it wasn't a cut which is a good thing. Poor Mom.
Be sure to check out my snow pictures tomorrow and remember we were only supposed to get a complete total of 1-2 inches of snow. Thankfully it wasn't too cold and I could actually go out and play in it this time.

Oh my goodness what a scary event.

We are very pleased to read your Mum is feeling calmer and Sasha is healing.

We always manage to do things when Dad is not around and our Mum has to cope.

PS. Cheese......good idea.

Split nails can be pretty ouchie and they do bleed. It happened to me once.

Poor mom. It sounds like she suffered more than Sasha (doggies are so brave).

I think if you had a nice bed you could go to work with dad. I help my Master in the barn sometimes because he has a doggie bed for me.


P.S. What will happen to you when you are abandondededed?

Saint Lover said...
