Mad at Dad

It just isn't fair and I want to file an official protest.  Sherman gets to go the dog park the last five days, while I am stuck at home.  Dad told me that I am on convalescent leave from Angel Paws.  I know Sherman and his rowdy friends are not keeping Angel Paws safe.  They are just to busy playing.  Arggggg.

Please let Dad know this is cruel and unusual punishment.  The Secretary of Da Fence, Essex, has a very important job to do.  If I have to stay home, then Sherman should stay right here with me.

The aggrieved pawty,

Essex S. Collie

=======================

Essex has been limping off and on since late November, when she was broadsided at Angel Paws.  She would seem to heal, then she would be gimpy again.  We saw the vet a week ago and got some pills to help with the occasional swelling.  The Doc told me to give her some Zoom.  I decided it was time to give her a week away from Angel Paws.  I hate leaving her at home, but by the Great Dane, she needs the rest.  Plan is two more days away from the park and x-rays next Wednesday.  In the five days away from the park, she seems to be getting stronger and quicker during our morning walks.

Sorry Essex, but I am staying firm on this one, even if you give me the sad puppy dog eyes look.

Protest all u want, old girl, but u know once dad makes up his mind, that's the end of it. I'll talk to Sherman about guard patrol, but u know playing with his pals comes first almost to the point of an obsessive distraction. Get better, old girl, so Angel Paws can be safe again!

Aw, Essex! I am so sorry. Poor girl. You gotta stay home and rest your paw, though!
I hope she heals up soon!

It is tough but sometimes dad know what's best. Reilly has had the limp thing going on for years...it comes and goes and they have never been able to find out why.

Awwwww Essex! It's not fair at all! But Dog Dad is doing his very best to make you feel all better...and I bet Sherman is watching the fence for you, cause he's a good guy. I hope you feel better soon!!

Hi Essex,
You KNOW I understand your complaint and I empathize with you, but SOMETIMES the Dad (or Mom) is doing the right thing for us....even if we don't agree. I had to be quiet and make sure to leave my stitches alone after my surgery or mom would have made me wear the "cone of shame".
Don't worry, you will be back to fence duty before you know it! In the mean time, give Dog Dad the sad puppy eyes and maybe you will get extra TREATS!!!
Get well soon,
Skye
