    DefaultI am a BAD mommy

    GRRRR... now I'm pissed at Eric AND myself. I saw the signs... but I was too slow and ender went and peed a huge load on the stairs... I yelled at Eric "I TOLD YOU" he says "HE JUST WENT 15 MINUTES AGO"... and I said "HE'S A PUPPY... I TOLD YOU HE WANTED OUT"... So I took him out and his leash got tangled in his legs and he pulled really hard and I didn't let go... heard the "yelp of pain"... and he started limping and holding his right front leg up... GRRR (at myself)... I carried him for a few steps... had him sit and he didn't put weight on it... nearly cried right there on the sidewalk... examined his leg and he didn't seem concerned with me touching it and manipulating it... and within about 1 minute he was walking normally

    but I feel like a complete $HIT-head

    Awwww poor mister ender

    Don't feel bad we all do a bad doggy mommy deed at some point. Mine was almost like yours except it involved me yelling at Molly to get off the sofa and she whacked the corner table on her way down hitting her leg and she yelped and didn't put weight on it for a few minutes. I feel like major sh!t

    Things happen - wait till Ender trips you, or walks on you wrong - you'll be yelping too.

    I remember 1 time Moose and I were playing and he went wide open into my leg - I was sore for weeks. Another time I thru a toy out the back door for him to chase and he ran straight into our standing fire pit. He really yelped and I felt so bad - I moved it so it wouldn't happen again.

    Ahhhhh.... Poor Lindsay (I'd say poor Ender, but I think you're upset more than he is! )

    The first week or so we had CoCo home, I had her up on the couch with me and she got squirmy. Before I could lift her down she jumped! It was far down for a lil puppy like her, and the floor is cork tile, so she went *smack* and yelped! She limped for a second, and I almost cried. And then 60 seconds later she was back to her bitey puppy self!

    Thanks for this! Very helpful!

    You are not a bad puppy mommy, Lindsay. I know how you feel, though. I have to get used to having a pup under my feet again. I turned around in the kitchen last night and stepped on Prince's front paw. I was wearing my house shoes so I knew it and did not come down with pressure. He still yelped and limped off. It terrified me at first thinking that I may have broke his lil paw. After a few minutes, like Ender, he was back to walking normal.

    You're not a bad mommy! You are going to have probably a few more incidents like these. One day I was taking Kimba out and was extremely irritated bc when he was little he asked to go out ALL THE TIME and I was rushing him into the elevator and the door slammed on his tail!!! Man I never heard a cry like that. It was all my fault but we both recovered and now I do not think Kimba even remembers.

    Thanks everyone... I was extremely frustrated and feeling like a total idiot last night. Can you see how seriously I take this new mommy job?

    I'll have to keep that "2 hr" rule in mind... good sound advice! ;D

    Lindsey, I stepped off the back step on Baileys leg and I thought I had broken it. She cried and limped and I cried and held her. But pretty soon she was just back to normal. You're definitely not alone.
