Cowart's Common Room

Had a spot of dog trouble yesterday as Sparky's back left leg went under the wheel of a moving quad bike. She's okay but can't walk on it and is feeling very sorry for herself. The farmer was mortified and felt very guilty even though he couldn't do anything about it happening as she slipped on ice just at the wrong moment. He took her to the vet who sedated her and gave her pain killers but I've just dropped her off this morning so they can sedate her again and do an Xray. She's definitely brighter this morning but still can't use the leg. Nothing wrong with her appetite, however!

If anyone has any spare hugs going today, my dear husband could do with one as he's terribly upset about it even though he accepts that accidents can and do happen. Also, if there's any dogs out there that might have a little tlc to offer a gorgeous red & white collie, please channel it our way!!!

I'll keep you updated. I have blogged about it today but I know this isn't the place to announce it.

Have a good day everyone.

Ivy's Avatar Give her Bach rescue remedy and a beef bone she will have forgotten very soon. thinking of it the farmer needs some rescue remedy even if he might not believe in it tell him at least it can't do any harm. Big hug for both of them.

Mountainear's Avatar Poor Sparky - and poor Farmer. I'm sure she'll be OK - she young, fit and bendy and in good hands.

Chester and Wilson send love and Big Licks.xx

Cait's Avatar Finn the lurcher and Katy the border collie are right beside me and they send lots of big licks to Sparky and a big hug is on its way from me to your husband as well. Sheepdogs are the toughest of the doggy species, they seem to have nine lives sometimes, she'll be fine

Withy Brook's Avatar I can guess just how the Farmer feels - even though he knows he couldn't help it. Big hugs to him and pats for Sparky, because there are no dogs here.

Westerwitch's Avatar Oh I bet the farmer does feel awful - accidents do happen - no way of forseeing that one and Sparky will know now to keep away from the quad bike.

I big hug for both the farmer and Sparky. I do hope Sparky is more comfortable now.

Camilla's Avatar I think the Farmer must feel dreadful about what happened, not his fault though. Avery big hug for both the Farmer and Sparky. Do hope that Sparky will be feeling in less pain and more comfortable.
