Christmas cheer

Toffee has asked me to cut out the histrionics and give you an update.

He ran out of the park gates in front of a car, the car braked, skidded and clipped his behind. I thought he was a goner, but in fact there wasn’t so much as a broken bone, although he didn’t recover the use of his back legs for many hours after the accident.

He has a badly bruised bottom and, quite literally, his arse in a sling.

Thanks so much for your well wishes, and thanks too – to a friend, for putting up with my panic attack.

I hope you all have a wonderful, joyful Christmas, whatever is perfect for you. We are going to sing and celebrate all the more, the lads will “wee on it”, and we’ll have a jolly old time!!

All the same, a pretty scary event. It's just so good that it wasn't worse, though. What a Christmas that would have been. {{shudder}}

I think you should record your "wee on it" rendition...hehe I have promised to one day sing Jimmy's "bath time" song. Yeah, we'll see how that goes.

I'm glad all is well this holiday and that Toffee is recovering nicely.

Cheers to you too Colin!!

Merry Christmas to you and the boys!

Merry Christmas, Colin. I'd think weeing on anything would be quite difficult with one's arse in a sling. Poor Toff will have to come up with something else for a bit. Glad he's okay. Glad you're okay.

With his ass in a sling, does Toff have to squat in order to wee on it?

as if dog-butt usually isn't amusing enough on it's own- now you have dog-butt-in-a-sling to keep you entertained for days. your pooch is a lucky little booger, hopefully he'll learn to listen to poppa once and awhile now!
MERRY CHRISTMAS.

I'm so glad that it wasn't any more serious than a bruised bum. Whew. I would have start crying right here and now.

Happy Holidays Colin!

Glad to hear Toffee is recovering. It is terrible when that happens. When Blaise was a pup he ran out of the park & straight in front of a car. With tears almost flowing down my face, screaming my lungs out all I could do was stand & watch the wonderful marvellous driver stop just inches from my pup. Thank you whoever you are! I think I was still shaking a week later. Glad to hear Toffee's wasn't a really bad accident & hope you have recovered too.
