Hurley has a broken leg...  
So, my husband and I went out of town this weekend so I could take him to his favorite restaurant for his b-day. We had some friends watch him (they just got a new Schnauzer pup) and let the two kiddos have a little play date while we were gone. When we came back to pick him up on Sunday, Hurley was holding up his back left leg and wouldn't walk. He had jumped off the couch earlier that day (he's been trying to act like super-dog lately off of our couch, so I see why...) and landed wrong. Took him to the vet yesterday. Sure enough, his tibia is fractured and he has to have cross pins put in the put it back together. Waiting on the vet to call me back as soon as he gets out of surgery. I'm pretty bummed, he just looked so sad and pathetic. Poor pup.

[Shhh... He's sleeping...]

poor guy :( did your friends tell you what had happened before you got there?

Yeah they called us and said he had jumped off the couch and hurt his leg. When we got there they had him on a heating pad hoping it would help. They are really torn up about it. But unfortunately kids and pets always find ways to hurt themselves... not much we can do but get him some good care and baby him when he comes home from the vets.
