Preparing for Motherhood...

So I feel like Josh and I got a little taste of what being parents would be like this weekend. We took our "baby" Comiskey to the dog park on Saturday, like we always do and she was playing awesome with her friend, Izzy, the Weimareiner. All of sudden as Comiskey ran by a huge German Shepherd bit her. Comiskey came over crying and limping. We immediately rushed to the Emergency clinic. They did an exam and then came to the conclusion we would have to sedate her, to do the stitches. We put her in the little kennel and left. We were both so upset.

When we picked her up she was so disoriented. She had to have an E-Collar which made her so anxious so Comiskey and I layed in the living room together until 2:30am, then I went back to the Emergency clinic to get some pain meds. At 4am Comiskey and I went upstairs and I layed on the floor with her and rubbed her. As soon as she fell asleep I went to our bed, however, she woke up crying immediately.

So Josh and I brought her into the spare bedroom, got her up on the bed (She is not allowed on ANY furniture), layed her down and I petted her the rest of the night. We slept from about 4:30am - 7:30am and then moved to our bed when Josh left for work.

I feel like I was prepped a little for what is to come. We realized we would do anything to soothe her and make her feel comfortable and safe.

Here are some pictures from her ordeal this weekend. Here is the wound, she also had a huge scratch across her belly.

Here she is after she was shaved and got her 6 stitches.

And here is our poor baby with her ENORMOUS E-Collar on!

Owen just saw the pictures of Comiskey in the collar and asked what happened. I told him that Comiskey got an owie (sp?) and he looked at me and said "Iskey need to go to da doctor for med-cine. Iskey feel all better now." I thought it was cute and had to share.

Poor sweet Comiskey!!! My heart just broke reading about what happened... it sounds like she needed Brody there to protect her! Let me know the next time you take her over, maybe we can go there together? Either way, let's get together soon, I miss you!
