Dempsy's Mom Posted May 14, 2017 Share Posted May 14, 2017 So .... I am pouting here in South Dakota. You know when your really happy and then something happens to start your day off wrong. I am better now, but yes I pouted and cried and felt sorry for myself for about a half hour right away this morning. Every morning Elsie runs down the steps in front and I carry Dempsy down. Elsie always waits at the bottom of the steps. Well, this morning - first step - my feet went flying out from underneath me - I was mid-air and landed smack on my back - I kept ahold of Dempsy and released him safely after I landed. Little rascal circled around me and scampered down the step to hide. Elsie, on the other hand, was still watching at the bottom of the steps. Her eyes were big, "Wow mom, that must of hurt." I laid there and assessed the pain. Wrist - ok. Arm - skinned and bleeding but working. Back - Ouch! Moving. Moving more. Ok - I didn't crack anything. Your ok. Just your spirit is broke. I limped to the door to let Els out, but she wouldn't leave my side. I ended up lying out in the grass thinking if I stayed with her she would go pee, but she laid beside me. So sweet. "Elsie, go pee." Nope. So I crawled to my feet and walked with her. Then she decided everything must be ok and she finally peed. Went back in the house - Dempsy is in his crate - laid on the couch for a half hour - Elsie on top of me. Pouted. And now I am back on track. Beautiful day! Going to plant my flowers today. Elsie and Demps will get to spend the day outside with me. It really makes me chuckle remembering Elsie's face. She had the most horrified look on her face - it must of been quite the sight. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!! 1 Quote Elsie, Max, Meeko & Lori Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
