Yay, I made it down the steps and into the backyard for the first time since February 8. The dogs were really suprised and glad to see me there. Walking around on uneven ground with crutches is a new skill-I'm still learning.
I'm watching "It's me or the dog" and I'm not sure I get people who put their animals ahead of even their children. I think these "overspoilers" are trying to fix something within themselves by spoiling the dogs-and the poor dog (who isn't designed to be a therapist or a surrogate human) loses.
I've got to seriously consider whether or not I can take on another dog for carting-that's just one more mouth, to feed shots to buy and yes thing to love. But, maybe I need to wait awhile.
