Update on My Day of R and R

When Ginny got home, her dogs Cyrus and Arlo sneaked out of the gate. Cyrus returned but sadly Arlo was hit on the road by a pickup. He broke the big bone in his back leg, both little bones and his pelvis! He is at the vet’s office waiting for surgery on Monday. Please, if you’re a dog lover, will you say a little prayer for Arlo and Ginny? This breaks my heart!

    Oh, I’m so sorry for everyone involved. Prayers being said. I’m so glad we live now, when surgery is an option–I often think of how much heartbreak my grandparents’s generation must have gone through, because I know they loved their pets, too, but their options were so much more limited. I am sure Arlo is in very good hands.

    I will pray for both dogs especially Arlo. How sad to have this happen to a family member. So sad. I will also pray for Connie too.

    Prayers for sweet little Arlo , 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 May his surgery go well and he will be on the mend soon. Bless little Ginny that she is ok. I’m sure she will miss Arlo till he is home. I wish people would slow down and watch for kids and fur babies they can get away from us so quickly. The good news is it didn’t kill him but I bet he was in a lot of pain. Bless his little heart.❤️
    Merry Christmas to the family .

    Oh I’m so sorry! This has always been a fright for me and my dogs. I cant imagine the pain! Please give Ginny my best wishes and hoping her sweet baby will be ok.

    Mary, always enjoy your posts. No never bragging. Just everyday life. I’ve never even seen a goat or chicken in person I dont think. My neighbor has a rooster I hear often but never saw it. So yes, love learning your farm life.

    Oh, my goodness. I am so sorry. I have two Goldens who are my loves. It is so hard when our furbabies are hurt or sick. My prayers are with Arlo and the vet team who is caring for him through this.

    Praying for Arlo in hopes the surgery is successful and for Ginny who is worried sick, I know. There’s nothing sadder than a badly injured animal. I’m praying for Arlo’s recovery.

    Just read your sad and shocking news about Arlo. Please, please God, help him through the weekend and through the surgery on Monday.
    Not a good day. I lost a chicken today. One I have had for many years.

      Sue – did your chicken die of old age? I always wonder about mine when they just die – I assume it’s old age. Thanks for thinking of Arlo!
