Tootsie Tuesday


This is my old pup and I earlier, just before I went out for my run. Not the greatest photo. Why? She kept moving around. That’s right after another long night and part of today she is walking again. Not just walking but almost back to herself walking! I have always been amazed with the human brain and now I am in awe of the dog brain too. 24 hours ago she was not doing well at all. The Mr. had mentioned it was probably best if we made a “decision” and as much as it hurt to admit it, I knew he was right. 24 hours ago, I was getting so close to calling the vet and I was preparing Princess and Buckaroo for the worst. We were all having a hard time. Lots of tears were shared between us. I decided I was going to give her until Wednesday to improve. It came down to quality of life for her and I just couldn’t bear seeing her not being able to walk and looking so sad.

But here we are! I am a little nervous about her doing so well so fast. But then again God or whomever you do or don’t believe in has given us more time with her. And I will take every minute of it.

Its been a good day. No. Wait. Actually. Its been a great day!

And I am looking forward to finally being able to rest.

Do you believe in miracles?

Did you get out there and run or walk today?

Until next time always be true to yourself and think like a boss!

  1. Waiting is hard but sometimes it is for the best. Happy to hear she is doing better.
    I didn’t run this morning but did ride my bike for my short commute to work. Tonight I have run club so will do my running then.
    Keep enjoying your great day! πŸ™‚

  3. Kimmie…I just wanted to reach out to you….the past 5 days have been a whirlwind for my boyfriend and I taking his dog to the vet. Unfortunately she gave up her fight last night and passed away. Until 5 days ago, she was still acting like a puppy despite being 9 years old…and then bam…she is now gone. It has ripped our hearts out and I know you know how I am feeling considering you were considering your options not long ago. I am so glad that your pup decided to fight!! I know I need to take comfort in the fact that we gave her the best life for those 9 years but it doesn’t help the pain. The vets are mystified as to what happened which does not help either. It is a long healing process ahead of us.


    • Ohhhhh no Courteney, I am so, so sorry, my heart is breaking for you, 😦 I completely understand how horribly awful and painful it is to lose furry family member. I lost my Izzy as a result of a drug recall that didn’t get pulled off the shelf and was used on her, I don’t know if its something to look into, but for me at least it helped to understand the why of things a little more. Oh heavens, my heart hurts for you, I have been where you are and its so difficult, they are such a large of part of our lives. Huge hugs and I will keep you both in my prayers, I really wish I could do something more! Hang in there and please know that you can email me if you need to vent or if there is anything I can do for you. *hugs*
