The Captains Dog Gets A Peg Leg

So my dumbass puppy fell off the top of our couch on Saturday and broke his leg.  Isn’t this the most pathetic thing you’re ever seen?

I wish I could say that he fell off because he was vigorously playing with Hugo or something else with a little dignity, but I can’t.  He just lost his balance and fell on his leg, breaking it in two spots.

Of course this had to happen on a Saturday afternoon, which meant we had to take him to an emergency veterinary clinic to get treatment.  $275 dollars later he came home with a blue splint on his leg.

The poor guy was super groggy for the first 24 hours, and since then he’s been slowly regaining his energy.  It appears that there is actually something that can slow Desmond down!

Meg took him to our vet today, and it looks like the splint will be staying for an additional 4–8 weeks.  Yikes!  Desmond is a tough little fellow, and the vet thinks that he will make a full recovery.

Should I have seen this coming?  After all, Desmond’s namesake on Lost fell down a well a few weeks ago and presumably broke a few bones.

Maybe tomorrow nite’s episode will give us an update on what to expect from Desmond.  Until then, our little man will be hobbling around the house like a pirate on his peg leg.  Barrrrrrrrrrk!

Ciao,

The Captain
