Dublin broke his leg...
The poor puppy was playing and jumping after a toy and somehow landed wrong...and broke his leg. Big D and I weren't at the house when this happened, which was very frustrating, but in the midst of that frustration, I still have some things I can be thankful for. It is amazing how many I can think of when I just try!
I am thankful J was at a friend's house when this happened...it would have been really hard on her to have seen Dublin in pain and panic!
I am thankful that D3 was home, and for his calm and capable handling of a terribly traumatic situation. He will truly be a great veterinarian some day!!
I am thankful for M's attempts to clean the carpet in my living room after the incident, making my job much easier then it would have been. (Dog's, according to my future-vet son, evacuate their bowels when in crisis. Dublin did alot of evacuating!)
I am thankful for C's willing heart to make and serve lunch to her brother and his 2 guests while I finished cleaning the carpet.
I am thankful that though the vet wanted to do surgery, she was still willing to give the cast a try. (So we are praying like crazy! Surgery isn't an option for us.)
I am thankful that God hears our prayers regarding our puppy.
Does God care when animals get hurt? Absolutely! "Yet not one of them is forgotten by God." Matt 12:6
