Colonel Mosby

The Three-Legged Adventures of Colonel Mosby

Colonel Mosby

Out and About

Two days ago we had to make a trip to the ER, because Mosby was panting, whining and clearly in a lot of stress. One trip later (which they didn’t charge us for — they said we’d pay enough!), they decided he has extreme pain in his lower back due to the strain of learning to walk with three legs, and upped his pain killers. That seems to be helping, as well as putting a warm pack on his back several times a day. When he is happy, I’m happy. Fingers crossed this continues.

As a treat, we took him to Tractor Supply to help pick out his grain free food, and also took him with us to Lowes. His tail wagged the whole time. He loves people and didn’t understand why every person didn’t come over to pet him. We definitely got some sympathy / pity looks, but some people really cooed over how handsome he was and asked if they could pet him (of course! He will be sad if you don’t!).

Dad, is that my food? Dad?

Mosby is snoozing near me, and it’s time for his next warm pack, so I’ll do that in a moment.

    Looking good Mosby! Murphy also loves a good massage to his back – when he lays on his side, we start rubbing his back & hips…he starts moaning & arches backwards lol.

    The Colonel is getting such good spoiling and deservedly so!! 🙂

    I can’t imagine ANYONE taking an opportunity to pet Mosby if he’s within petting range!! Such a sweet, gentle, happy boy!

    Now don t overdo Mosby, okay? Straining your back muscles requires taking it really, really easy for several days.

    Glad your humans didn’t get charged for the ER visit. Obviously, that’s because you are a very, very special boy!! 🙂

    Lots of hugs!

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
