After arriving home from a late night of scrapbooking at Archivers, I was standing in the kitchen with Kim and Peggy Sue and surrounded by a sea of dogs. I remember stepping back and hearing one of the dogs yelp! I didn't know which one it was and I didn't think nothing of it since they are always getting underfoot. It's hard not to when you are one of eleven dogs... (Kims four, my four and three puppies).

The next day (Saturday), Kim and I noticed that Hallee was limping and not using her right front leg at all. Kim tried to check the leg but Hallee was in a lot of pain and let Kim know it. I tried to look at it but she wouldn't let me touch it. We took her to the Banfield Emergency Vet and they x-rayed her leg and found out that she had two broken toes... Poor thing. They had to muzzle her and give her pain medications that made her drool like a St. Bernard because it was making her nauseous, put a splint on her leg clear up past her elbow and made us tie an IV bag around her leg every time she has to go outside so the bandages don't get dirty. And on top of all that they made her wear the Cone of Shame! (See the movie UP).

I feel so humbled... I stepped on her paw and broke her toes, putting her through some excruciating pain and multiple vet visits. Yet through it all... she still loves me...unconditionally.  Why? Because that is her purpose... to love her people no matter what...

Dog spelled backwards is God...

Kind of makes you want to stop, bow the head and bend the knee to thank God for His unconditional love...

I am so sorry Halle Bug
