This is the only way to describe the puppies. This morning as I was trying to pick up red girl to weigh her, a puppy was under me and as I was trying to avoid stepping on the puppy I ended up falling into a hole and spraining my ankle. To say it hurt is an understatement. Thankfully as I fell I was able to hang on to red and not drop her and not fall on any other puppies. As I sat there crying inwardly and trying to breathe, I had all 10 puppies climbing all over me, giving me kisses and they were just happy I was on their level. I kept my feelings in check as to not upset the pups and eventually managed to get myself up off the ground.
I know that the one thing I am supposed to do with a sprain is to elevate and Ice. However, I had to go to work, which is impossible in both instances to do. So now that I am home again this evening writing this I am finally able to elevate and ice and hoping that it is feeling better tomorrow. If not I am not going to work that is for sure. Too many things going on this week to have a bummed up ankle.
The pups are all doing great! Purple and Hot Pink hit the 15 pound mark and Little Lime has passed up Red and Silver girl and is now 12 lbs 2 ounces, I figured I had about 145 pounds of puppies on me this morning.
Yesterday my friend Cindy Geisler came and helped take puppy pictures. We had a wonderful time and it was so nice to spend time with her and not be at a dog show or having her do a chiropractic or acupuncture on one of my dogs. We were able to take her dogs for a nice walk and it was just a lovely afternoon.
Tomorrow morning I am taking everyone into the Vets office for their first shots and micro chips. I also need to bathe the puppies this week, so I am thinking either Wed or Thursday, could be both:)
