I don't like asking for help. Never have, even since I was a kid. I guess I just prefer to do things on my own for the sake of learning, personal growth and little bit of fearing weakness or burden to others. Maybe it's a recipe for pure stubbornness. Yes, that's definitely what it is. Where to begin is a bit awkward, and I've probably spent the last hour deleting each sentence as I go along. Truth is, I just don't know what I'm doing, but I'm going to give it a try.
For the last couple of weeks we have been having a bit of trouble with Breakfast, where he has been prescribed with 10 days of rest (and medication) due to a limp that he developed quite out of the blue. Definitely the word "rest" isn't part of the puppy vocabulary where even I have had some difficulty in learning how to keep him even close to semi-sedentary.
I'm doing my absolute best to take Ian's advice to take each day at a time rather than get sick off of senseless worry, though I have no idea what is going to happen next. I figure the best thing I can do to keep a level head is to continue on with the things that warm my heart, by offering our newest Dear Libby product for puppies; Chewy Lewis! *more details about this product will come in our next post.
For each Chewy Lewis purchased, we are not only asking all of our fellow puppy lovers to lend a hand (or a paw) to get our wobbly boy back on all fours again, we encourage you to share with us your own heartwarming stories about what it is that makes your dog so fabulous. What have they brought into your life? What have you learned? How have you grown? This sort of approach makes asking for help feel so much easier because I know what it means to be head over heels in love with a dog, and that the world would be a very boring place without them.
Breakfast and I thank you all for your tremendous support, as we enter the next phase of this process. All of those who wish to help, send your inquiry to our Libby mail.
