he's a tank

Just wanted to update about Scole. We have no idea how he got this lucky, but the vet called this morning and there are no broken bones. I was completely in shock. I was sure that he was going to have a broken hip, leg, or even worse. After if happened last night, he couldn't walk or even stand. He looked like his whole back end had been rearranged. Our vet just said he was "built like a tank." Anyway, he probably has some ligament damage, especially in his right leg, but he's going to be ok. They are keeping him until Monday morning and then he'll get to come home and take pain medication and recover for a couple of weeks before we can tell how severe the ligament damage actually is. We are all so relieved and thankful for the good report. Lilly is so glad that he isn't going to heaven yet :) We'll be keeping a much closer eye on Mr. Scole from now on. I'm just glad he'll be around to celebrate his 12th birthday in the house he lived in when Jon first brought him home as a little floppy puppy. Thanks to everyone who had asked about him!

Wow, it's amazing he did not break anything. I love my lab and can't imagine anything happening to him, I would have been a basketcase!
