9.2.12 Bad Mommy – But Sofie’s Ok

02 Sep

I am lacking inspiration and yes, I know why, but still it is hard to get moving on anything.  It doesn’t help that the heat has returned and it is really unpleasant to be outside.  So the dogs and I took a trip to PetSmart to return 2 big bags of kitten food that the kittens no longer need and to buy some new cat food and of course to get them treats.  I was actually very excited about taking them on an adventure because we have not done that much the last few weeks.  When we got to the store, I figured that I would be safe and I backed the truck up to the curb, so that when I let the dogs out, there would be less of a chance of them running into traffic.  Well, you know how in parking lots that have those cement bumps on the ground for cars to park against, I think they have some special name like… “curb stops,” or something.  When I opened the back door of the truck, the dogs were good and stayed until I told them to come out, but when Sofie jumped down she landed right on that cement bump and then proceeded to careen into the real curb, which was only 6″ or so away, and landed chin first. I was initially worried that she lost a tooth, but she appeared just dazed and did not whine or cry.  So, being the ‘let’s just keep going no matter what,’ kind of person, I went into the store with them.  It was about 5 minutes later, as we were admiring the guinea pigs (Note: please go to animal rescue (even guinea pigs), do not buy live animals from pet stores unless they are from an animal charity), that I realized she was bleeding all over the place.  She had really scraped her chin bad.  Thank goodness she did not loss any teeth.  I swapped her down with a tissue but then went to the in store vet and asked them for some wet guise to clean her up.  She did not like me touching it, but otherwise was ok and wanted to sniff and explore.  We had a great exploration of the store, got 2 new eggcrate beds for their kennels, and a new rope toy.  Did you notice how you always spend more money if your kids are with you in the grocery store (really, they have scientifically proven this to be true), well I absolutely spent more money because the dogs were with me in the pet store (or was it because I was suffering from Mommy guilt because one of my furries got hurt.)  Good thing the cats weren’t with us or I would be broke.

“Lulu, I got a boo boo, can you make it feel better?” – Sofie Bear

Post Script:  Sofie does not want me to touch the boo boo, but I have been trying to put antibiotic cream on it.  She has been licking her paws a lot and I think that is because she is trying to rub it.  She also won’t let me take a picture for you to see.  But she is fine.
