Gus the Wonder Dog is Wondering

Gus is wondering how to type on my computer so he can help me write my blogs! He is sad because he pulled me though the trees, which made me slip on wet pine needles and tear the tendon in my right arm. I was unable to use my right hand for about a week, but it is much better now and I will be able to continue my blogs this week!

After the fall, I held Gus in my arms and explained that he is a puppy and I am the mommy. I am the one who made the mistake by traveling through the trees at 10:30 at night and not heeding Jim's warning. I think he understood, but he was still sad.  

I'm sure he was happy when he heard me tell Jim that my orthopedic surgeon explained on Monday that rotator cuff surgery was not an option because the tear was too large. I held my breath while waiting for Dr. Sensiba's next recommendation. I was elated when he prescribed six -weeks of physical therapy! Gus may not have understood exactly what I was saying, but I know he felt my excitement and relief at that news. He is after all, a wonderfully, smart puppy!

The next day, I found Gus on the back porch playing with the garden digger. I think he was trying to figure out how to help me with the weeds!  I will let you know how we make out!

Thanks for your patience and concern!

    Gus is a very smart puppy but he needs a smarter alpha.

    Ok, my friend. Physical therapy is so much better than surgery - even though it can hurt, it really makes a difference. Hang in there & give Gus a hug for me!
