Yesterday, Wiggley had a minor mishap.
Or make that, major mishap. That would be an x-ray of his right "elbow". It's a bit dislocated. He also has a broken left leg, but that x-ray didn't look quite as interesting as this one.
You see, Wiggley and his best buddy/neighbor, Peewee (pictured below), love to chase squirrels. Well, this particular squirrel decided to dart across the road in front of a truck doing about 90, who never even checked up. Wiggley survived. Peewee did not.
It's a bit difficult for him to sit himself up to eat right now.
And well, lets just say he won't be hiking his leg anytime soon either.
He has to go back to the vet in 10 days, and he's currently on painkillers.
Remember, just because you may be on an empty country road, doesn't mean you should speed. There could be anything around the next corner, dogs, kids, livestock, broken down tractors...
And by the way, if you happen to hit someone's dog, make that, 2 dogs, at least stop. Don't be a jackass and act like you didn't notice.
