YOU CAN NOT BELIEVE THIS..........I have not been able to sleep all night..I am a wreck, besides myself.............. I HAVE HURT MY RIGHT LEG!!!!!!!!!! YES THAT'S RIGHT........MY EARTHDOG DIGGING LEG!!!!!!! What am I going to do??????? I jumped off our bed last evening and then PL2 noticed I was limping alittle and now this morning I can't put a whole lot of pressure on it............. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! My trial is in ,well you know how many days...what if I have to get these???

Oh this is not good...PL2 gave me some medicine and she has a call into Archies Chiropractor...Archie has a call into the coaches of the Red Sox, Patriots .Celtics and Bruins in case they have any good ideas..........Will keep you posted........ Not only that but we had a date today with Toffe and Riley to go and smell the lilacs at our Arboretum........this is too much.....


Patience-please said...

Oh NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! We wonder if you might have bunged a toe? Perhaps your PL2 could ever-so-gently feel each one. You could scream and jump and act like you might faint when she gets to the right one so that she gets the message.
What ever it is we sure hope it's all gone in time for you to get Mr. RAT!!!

Niamh said...

Oh dear Agatha! And you have been training so hard for your trial. Rest it as much as you can. Maybe your PLs will carry you around so you don't have to put any weight on it. Paws crossed for a quick recovery!

Your friend,

Gus said...

Oh yeah, that is a good idea. You may even have to be carried onto the field at the earth dog trials.

Whatever you do, don't lose sight of Mr. Rat.

Oh RATS! This is not funny. Not even a little.

It is sounding strikingly familiar, though. I made a flying leap off the tall bed a few months ago and later started limping around. After a (very expensive, as Mom put it) vetman visit and some anti-inflammatory drugs, my "stubbed toe" got all better. We're hoping that's "all" it is.

Run and dig in your dreams, in the meantime. Chase that RAT!

Wirey best wishes,
Jake (and Fergi)

the many Bs said...

oh dear, this is very bad. Agatha, you must get better FAST! you need that leg. take it easy, no crazy jumping, okay???


Dexter said...

OK, little Agatha, remain calm. This is just a little strain, right? Maybe a heating pad and massage. You can practice your Earth dog in your head by thinking about those rats and what you will do when you see them. Go easy at the Arbor Eat 'em.

Momma was thinking of trying to get to your competition this weekend, so keep us posted if you will be there.


Deetz said...

Ohhhhhh, gots to go to the doctor too...surely you will be better before the trials...just stay off it for a day or two...Crutches would be kinda cool and with those things you can just beat the rat over the head with the crutches...

TwoSpecialWires said...

We're back! (How's the limp?)

We just updated our last blog with some good news! We thought you might want to know!

Waggin our tails,
Happy Jake and Fergi

Poopsie aka Blue said...

Oh my!
Poor you - Do hope you're going to make a quick recovery Agatha...

Love, pats & pets

Princess Patches said...

Poor Agatha! We like Deetz's idea...just beat the rat over the head with the crutches! But, seriously, we're sending lots of healing Aire-zen so you are all better before the big day!

Eric said...

Crickey Twinnie!! Can hardly breathe, wagged over as fast as I could to see what was up. Oh twinnie I really am dogabloggingsobbing for you. Paws and everything crossed you'll be ok in a couple of days. Take it easy. Hope those coachies have some good ideas for you.

Woah and missing your date with my sweetie pupcake and her bro too. Hope those lilacs will wait.

Love and healing kissies, Eric xx

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh Agatha, I am so so so so upset to read this news.

I hope it soon sorts itself out!

I am late in commenting and blogging, we have had computer probs.

Nothing new then!

Get well to your leg soon!

Marvin xxxxx

Molly the Airedale said...

Our paws are crossed that things will be much better in a day or two!
Maybe one of Lacie's smoothies will help to keep you calm?!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Unknown said...

OMD!!! Remember RICE- not to eat but Rest- Ice- Compress and Elevate! Maybe Tom Brady can come over and give you some tips. Oh that's right.. he's busy with that giselle thing.

You should take some time off anyways before an event. That way you'll be fresh for the rats.

Where's your event? We may peep at u.

Lucia said...

Ciao, A+A!

Santa vacca, Agatha!!! I will keep my paws crossed that this is just a minor toe-stubbie incident and that you will be all betterer PDQ. In the meantime, I like the plan Deetzy suggested: if you have to get crutches, you can use one to just whack that rat upside the noggin!

Tanti baci!

Lorenza said...

Agatha!! I can't believe it!
Paws crossed! Paws crossed! Paws crossed!
I hope you will be like new for your trial!
Kisses and hugs

Amber-Mae said...

Oh noooooo Agatha!!!! That soooo totally sucks! Why do these things ALWAYS happen(including to us) when there's a huge event coming up like a week or a few days & we're participating in it? Why oh why??? We hope it gets better soon. Be sure to have alot of rest. No more jumping, running, playing rough & tumble till your trial day.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh noooo.. that's terrible!!! You have been training so hard for the 'E' so it'd be a real pity if you have to give it a miss.. but hey, your well-being is more impawtant. Hope it heals soon...

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Agatha...calm down immediately.

All that panic is going to set ur sypathetic nervous system into overdrive...flight or that for the rats...IT DOES NUTHIN' FOR HEALIN' UR KNEE.

Now, calm down...I will be arriving shortly...I'm thinkin' we should try an onion poultice...I'm assumin' you've been icin' for 24? the heat....get Arch to chop buckets of onions and fry em up till they're hot....I will be bringin' the special flannel to wrap them in...

Scruffy's comin' too...he's bringin' hot dogs and kraut...(kosher...only the best) so when we're done with the onions we can eat em...I know I know...dogs can't eat onions...well, these are special problemo....

I have a special healin' smoothie I've been anxious to try...has four different kinds of fruit...and a lot of additives....

Now stop frettin'...I also am bringin' Hotel For Dogs so you can keep ur leggie up while you poultice.....

Never fear...Lacie will be here....


William Tell said...

No, no, no!!! This is a catastrophe (even without a cat involved)!!! We love hearing about your earthdog trials and can't bear to see you sidelined! Hope you heal in a hurry.

Agatha this is dreadful news. Do you think you over did the training and this caused your problem?

We do hope the bone cracker can help you.

Take care, put your paws up and get Archie to do all the running around for the next few days.
