Trouble On Tuesday - by Phod

Dear pals,

The most horrible thing happened last week. I was out for my morning walk with the Lady and Lee and as we turned back to our private road, I stepped on a pine cone and rolled my ankle.

Now while I did convince my peeps I didn't need the vet, things have not been peachy. I have to rest. No long walks. No ball. No beach. And the worst part . . . 

they ice it. 

 I don't seem to be in too much pain and I am limping less.

Hopefully life will get back to normal soon.

The saddest Phod ever


  1. we hope it heals up quickly... to ice something is a challenge... we had a mess in the kitchen as we tried to ice phennys paw after the bee attack.... hugs and potp to you

  2. Hari OM
    eeeeeekkkk!!! Sending POTP dear Zaphod, that you heal fast and true! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. Oh Phod, I'm afraid Gail has been following your lead and she is sitting with a bag of frozen peas on her ankle as she helps me type this...
    Please get well soon, my friend.
    Toodle pip!

  4. So sorry to hear this and I hope you're better today. The surgeon that did Bob's eyelid said the best way to ice things was to use peas Garden peas so you might want to try just a bag of frozen peas and if it's too big you take them out and put them in a baggie and they wrap around the pawl really. We took tiny little bags and put like 20 peas in it so that the bag was just the right size to put on his eye so you can make it any size you want and it just kind of wraps around

  5. Hope you feel better soon, Phod. I think I'd never sit still for an ice pack, though. You're a good pup!

  6. Phod darling I once did the exact thing. Bcat and I were out walking Minding our own business and a pesky pine jumped under my foot. I too rolled my very weak ankle...thank goodness Bcat didn't have to carry me the remaining block home I hobbled but boy oh boy do I feel you pain.
    Hugs HiC

  7. Oh dear! We sure hope you feel better soon and will be back in good shape soon. We think swimming would be good exercise for your leg. Our paws are crossed that you are fetching your precious soon.

  8. What a bummer, Phod! We are sending you lots of AireZen and healing vibes and we hope you are back to 100% soon!

  9. Oh Phod, the things you suffer!! Hopefully you'll be back on all four feet in no time.

  10. Oh Phoddy...we sure hope the Lady and Man are supplying lots of treats while you are healing!

    POTP you are back to good real soon!

  11. Oh Phod, we are so sorry about your ankle injury. We hope it heals quickly. Misty doesn't like it when Mom puts a warm compress on her leg - it just doesn't feel normal to her.

  12. Oh no, Phod! We hope you heal quickly and can get back to walking and playing again.

  13. Sorry you hurt your ankle. Hope you feel better soon.

  14. Oh no! Ice is cold! Hang in there, pal.

    Love and licks,

  15. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! Oh NO! Feel better soon so Ball can come back!!!
