Well, I am not here for weeks and then I come back with bad news. Sarge was walking w/my husband and he was training him to walk w/out the leash, and we live on a very quiet street w/sidewalks and he saw a squirrel and bolted out into the street just as a teenager speed around the corner and hit him. We rushed him into the ER Vet and he has a broken leg (rear right) and bumped up possibly a canine concussion, but he will be alright, thank God! My life is a soap opera right now! I swear! Any ideas on how to keep a 9 mo old Shepherd puppy from making his leg worse? ARRRGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :?
