I haven't posted on here in a while, but I felt I should share this.
Last week I was out surfing, and unfortunately broke my leg to the point that it required surgery. I had a plate and 7 screws put in to hold my fibula together...no fun.
Needless to say, I haven't been getting much training done in the past week. I'm not the only one who's noticing this lack of action, either.
I had the surgery on Monday, and they told me that I would be in quite a bit of pain for about a week before I saw any improvement.
Yesterday, I was sitting out on my porch, reading a book when I felt a cold nose on my knee. When I looked down, there was my girl, sitting in front of me with a bumper in her mouth, and continually bumping me with her nose and whining.
I took the bumper from her, and threw some fun bumpers for her, which she was very happy to get. I spent the past few days thinking about how this injury had ruined my summer as a beach bartender and had not been in the best of moods. But she reminded me of another VERY important part of the summer...getting us both in shape for the upcoming hunting season. I swear, they know when we're feeling down, and they know just how to get us back up.
Now that I have this new look on the situation, I swear my leg feels a MILLION times better today. I love my dog.
