View Full Version : Puppy fell off the bed!

17th August 2006, 05:42 PM
Elvis fell off the bed last night when he and Beauregard were playing and broke a piece of bone loose where the tendon connects the knee parts. Thankfully, the docs think it may be okay with a splint for a couple weeks. He's a very unhappy puppy today, and his playmate is, too. We knew they could get hurt jumping off the bed, or falling off during their sleep...but never really thought about them falling off while playing. Duh! This will make you feel like bad doggie parents. :(

sorry you had to go through that. did he cry? i hope he heals up fast.
the photos sure capture the moment. i had to laugh out loud when i scrolled down and saw beauregard looking at elvis in his place of confinement. a difficult time for all, clearly.

Oh wow is he ever big now! I love the pictures ;) I am sorry he fell off the bed!!

When Kos was still brand new to me he fell off the counter in the bathroom!! :yikes :yikes It obviously wasn't on purpose and i caught him halfway down to soften his fall, but things happen!! It was bath time and I was trying to dry him and he was so squirmy...! ALso a few weeks ago there was another dog and he squirmed out of avi's arms and fell on the concrete. Thank God there were no broken bones but the point of the stories is these things happen!! Don't beat yourself up over it and just try to look at the bright side! His leg will heal :) You're not a bad mommy so don't even think that way! :) Take care! :flwr: :flwr:

Elvis is dragging the leg around with no problems. He's using the doggie door and handling the steps just fine. He and Beau both want to chew on the splint, so we're having to watch that...but all indications are that he's gonne be fine. :flwr:
