I took a short 5 minute ride into the National Forest Saturday afternoon with my wife, with Porkchop (a 20 lb. mini pinsher), and with Cai (a 115 lb. german shepherd). During a 100 foot walk I discovered Porkchop was my key to temperary relief of my chronic neck pain. I was standing alone when Cai came running up behind me and with her 115 pounds ran past me bairly missing my right leg. Then Porkchop came running up behind me and used all of his 20 pounds running into my right leg. At that moment I discovered my neck did not hurt for the next 10 minutes! As I found myself sitting in the dirt road I quickly noticed my neck pain was completely missing while I was holding my right ankle with both hands. It then came to me like a bolt of lightning striking my right ankle - ouchhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! After sitting there for about 10 minutes I slowly got up and limped back to the truck with much pain in every other step. I have since gone to our storage and obtained a crutch which I am still using to keep weight off of my right ankle. It is still swollen and very sore as I write this. Is there a lesson to be learned here? YES! Do not ever attach Porkchop's 3 foot leash to Cai again even if Porkchop always has a history of running off! I really do not have a problem now if Porkchop wants to have dinner with the wolves.
GOD BLESS ALL,
