Daisy loves to race around the house like the silly little nut she is, especially if someone’s trying to catch her to give her a bath or put her harness on. Or sometimes for no reason at all.
She goes so fast that it looks like her back legs want to pass her front legs. I don’t think there’s even a camera speed that can stop that action!
The other day Daisy was curled up on my lap, and I was stroking her lightly. Very lightly. When my fingers ran over a spot on her left side, she made a small sound of complaint, and her entire side pulled in.
I’ve never seen her do that before. I thought maybe I’d hit a ticklish spot and it annoyed her. So I did it again just to see if it was a one-off. Nope. I did it a third time just to be sure. Each time, the same result. Anywhere else was fine, but that one spot bothered her.
Broken rib? But how could that have possibly happened?
I mentioned it to DD, who solved the mystery.
Silly little Daisy had been racing around and around the coffee table in the family room when she cut the corner a little too tight one time and hit her side on the corner of a footstool we keep tucked underneath. DD said Daisy stopped in her tracks, looking a bit stunned, seemed to think about it for a second, then walked away.
Which just goes to prove – sometimes puppy mischief can backfire!
