Tater


We thought Tater pulled a muscle the middle of this past week while we were out in the park. He started crying while playing with a poodle (we thought it was just excitement). Then he wasn't jumping up on the sofa or the bed (and when he did we would cry out in pain). It was getting better (less crying and wimpering) by Friday, but yesterday we had a relapse. I called the vet, explained what had been going on. He told us that we could give Tater baby aspirin but that if he wasn't better a week after the incident, we should probably come in... because dogs tear ligaments/tendons all the time. And as some of us remember from anatomy, ligaments don't heal... without surgery. This is Sunday morning and he's still crying when he jumps (we're trying to not let him, and most of the time he doesn't want to), and crying sometimes when he stands up and when we pick him up (though he can walk just fine and walked all the way around the park yesterday with no problem... go figure). So, I'm calling the vet's office tomorrow for an appointment. I'm in agreement with the vet; a pulled muscle should be getting better by now.


So, if you feel so inclined today, could you please say a little prayer for Tater (and for our bank account) that whatever is wrong inside of him heals itself...
