So I was at the park yesterday, just doing my thing, and -- I don't know what happened. One minute I was kicking butt in a game of chase, and next thing you know one of my feet stopped working. It hurt so bad I didn't want to walk on it.
I couldn't walk good enough to get myself home from the park, so my human had to carry me. Talk about embarrassing! But as soon as we got home, she did some stuff to make my foot better. I've been down this road once before and knew the routine: baby aspirin, frozen peas, homeopathic jelly, then to bed.
If my foot doesn't feel better soon, I'll have to go the vet. But that's not the worst of it -- the last time my foot hurt I had to stay in bed for a whole WEEK. Ugh. So I asked my human if there's anything we can do to speed things up this time. She said if I can elevate my foot - y'know, keep it in the air about my heart - that will keep the swelling down and, somehow, help it get better.
It didn't take very long to find a comfortable position to elevate from. Now I just need to figure out a way to watch Animal Planet upside down.
