Moms, I don't know how you do it.

Again, I apologize for comparing my dog to your child but...

Here is our sweet, dumb dog.

{and here is a short cut from our house to my sister and brother in laws house next door}

We moved the chair and those stones a week ago because Buster learned he could jump over the fence and experience the sweet taste of freedom. On Sunday, he tried to jump the fence and managed to get his back paw intertwined in the chain link. The poor guy was hanging with his back foot caught in the fence for 10 minutes. Luckily, I saw him. Just hanging and helpless. I immediately ran to help, realized it was a two person job, screamed for Tony and we both lifted and wrestled his paw free. Buster was in shock. Tony and I were as well. His foot was cut and bloody and he wasn’t putting any weight on it.

I felt so helpless, every time I got close to him to pet him he would get up and move to a new spot in the house. After a vet visit and x-rays, we found out the foot was not broken, just cut up, swollen and painful.
So I did what any reasonable person would do, I went out and bought him doggie ice cream

Did you know they made that stuff? It's called Frosty Paws and while it did nothing to heal him, it took his mind off the pain for a brief moment.

Seriously mothers, how do you watch your kids in pain? It scares me. I feel like God is saving the best life lessons for parenthood.

happy he's doing much better. KJ fell the other day and busted his lip and nose. Wouldn't stop bleeding for 4 1/2 hours. When my husband finally got home it stopped, ugh. my heart hurt.

Poor puppy! I don't care if it is "just a dog," he's YOUR baby!! And I always say I'd rather suffer than see any of my babies, human or feline, suffer.
