Bentley's Road to Recovery!

Did She say DOG PARK? 

It's been so long since mommy and me went to the park. Are you ready mom? LET’S GO! I'm so excited to play ball with you! HURRY! HURRY! 

It's getting late, mom said one more throw ... and that's where it all started!

It all went so fast; I took off in a flash! I was gonna get that ball, until I took the fall.

The pain was like no other; I called for my mother!
To my rescue she came, with love to cure my pain.

But something was just not right, I have a feeling it’s going to be a long night!

Let me tell you about my fight…

Where is my mommy? What is this strange place; you’re not a familiar face!

WAIT, STOP! What are you doing to me? I'm not going to be so carefree!

They didn’t give me a choice, you no longer can hear my voice.

Oh NO, What next? I’m feeling quite perplexed!

She’s grabbing something out of her pouch?

This place is a little creepy; I'm starting to get sleepy.
These beaming lights, I'm losing sight. 
4, 3, 2, ZZzzzzzz…

What is this monster machine; It’s showing pictures of me on a big screen. Am I in a dream?

PHEW! What did I just go through? Did I take a little snoozy? I’m feeling a little woozy!

I can see mommy in sight; everything is going to be alright!

This is bazaar; I can’t even get into the car!
I just want to go home and be left alone!

OH GREAT! I can’t even hold my own weight, and now I need to walk straight. These stairs are going to be ruff, I’ve had enough!

Ahh! comfy bed, now I can lay my head. Getting comfy was not too fun, it's easier said than done.
OH, THE STRUGGLE; I just want to snuggle.

Oh No, I have to GO; but the thought of those stairs blow!!

Mommy I know you mean well, but this is not so swell. I feel very confined, please lower my behind.

It’s a new day, and I'm still in dismay! Not feeling so good, I wish I understood.

I feel like I'm gonna get sick. OOP, that came up quick.
Red? Have I bled?

Mommy was worried and to another vet we hurried!
I hope this doctor is better than the last, or I will be outta there FAST!

Mommy is still here to calm my fear.

Thank you for the treat, but please stop touching my feet. I don’t mean to whine, but my ears are just fine!  The belly rub was great, but tricking me I hate! In the corner, he held me tight so I wouldn’t put up a fight. My stomach is in a knot; oh no, I think it's another shot!

PHEW, that wasn’t so bad; boy am I glad!

As they chat, I hear “torn Cranial Cruciate Ligament (CCL) – What is that?

 Mom looks distraught. Man, they sure do talk a lot!

Did they say, “change my food?” Damn I'm screwed! The thought of all these pills kills and the time to heal, is enough to make anyone squeal!

Mommy needs to make a decision, whether or not they should make an incision.

WOW!!! $3,500 – that can buy a lot of bones! Instead, she’s going to have to take out several loans!

She wants to see me run and play, but she doesn’t know how she can pay. She wants nothing more than to see me on all four!

Please find it in your heart to contribute to the pot.
Little by little, a little becomes a lot!

Much Wuffs for your support <3
