3 legs are better than 2

Mighty was in trouble on Wednesday. He went pee all over my newly cleaned carpet when he was doing so good at going potty outside. I picked him up quickly and proceeded to take him to his "time out" spot. It was obvious to him that I was upset, so he got a little ahead of himself by leaping out of my arms and falling a few inches to the ground. It didn't seem like a bad fall until I realized he was holding up his left paw. Nervously I called his name. He began to slowly hobble towards me on 3 legs! I felt terrible! Immediately the tears started coming and I kept apologizing to the little guy. Turns out he broke basically all the little bones in his teeny tiny foot. Looks like he'll be getting all the treats he can eat for the next 6 weeks.

Poor Mighty! Once Harley ran under my feet when we were on a walk and I kinda booted him in the head and he blacked out. I felt so so bad. It's funny how much they turn into be our children that we don't have. :)
I hope he gets better soon.

oh, poor little guy! He is so cute. That is the same kind of dog that Spencer had growing up. So cute. I agree the cast is sad and cute at the same time...the picture almost makes me want to get a dog.
