The Dog Who Has Nine Lives.....:-/

Oh are the sweetest, most protective, most loyal and luckiest dog ever!  We are so blessed to have you as our loving pooch....but please, oh please...don't ever do ANY more joy running out to the EVER!  

~~~The Story~~~Our poor dog ran out to the street yesterday afternoon on a whim and a Lexus SUV broadsided him in his left shoulder.  Johnathan and I saw it all and it was a sight I'll remember a long while...Johnathan asked some questions about it later on yesterday evening, but seemed to be fine knowing BoBo was okay.  

We took Bo to the animal emergency hospital and luckily he didn't suffer any major injuries.  Just some bruising at the location of the hit, but nothing more that could be determined at the visit.  He got sent home with pain meds and we're monitoring him for the next few days 'til we take him back to his regular vet.  

Even though I am just sick over the fact he got hit I am grateful for the added reminder of just how dangerous being out in the street can be.  It was a good object lesson for the boys, but mostly for all happened so fast, in just seconds, and I am going to be more vigilant than ever when the boys are out there playing.  You never can be too careful when watching over little rambunctious dudes who don't understand the full scope of the danger that are out there!


So today finds me thankful for our sweet dog.  I just can't imagine life without him.  He's been our baby since before the boys and will always hold a very special place in our hearts.  

Love you, BoBo, and glad you're living to see another day!
