don't you ever run out of the park again...

there's no more sickening moment than the screech sqwall of brakes and a dull thud....

...nothing so terrifying as looking down at your dog, who's petrified, broken and shivering in the road....rolling a big bown eye at you and whimpering because his legs don't work

or standing in the surgery waiting for news..I'd change places with you gladly if I only could...

and then waking up to the same big stupid eye, lolling in the same big stupid, beautiful face, with a silly bandaged bum, lying in your bed.

Thank you providence.

We so have to get out of this f#cking city.

We don't belong here.

Was it Charlie or Toff?

Hope everything heals beautifully.

Oh my God Colin, you're right there would be no more sickening moment! What a stressful day for you, but I'm so glad he's going to be ok.

No broken bones, just bruised? You were lucky that time.

wow- i can't even imagine how you must have felt, standing there staring at your poor pooch with your heart in your hands. the sight of any dog in pain just about kills me, i can't imagine what i would do if it were mine. he's a lucky dog, for sure!

Oh Colin!!

I'm glad he's ok... I hate the city traffic so badly. It is one of the reasons I won't get a pup just yet. It seems as if Toffee has the greatest disposition.

How scary of a night but what a happy boy to wake up to.

Time to scoot. Find a job that pays the bills and get to a place you'll enjoy. Life's too short. It really is. And when you get there we'll all throw you a blogger's house-warming party.
