Crawl to the doc?

I over estimated myself yesterday . That makes a first some would say.

As my dog had to be pts in January, I thought I could walk someone else's dog for them.

I had answered an ad, and the family live VERY close to field where the dog likes to be let off his lead & run around.

Also, it wasn't to be very regular, only now & then when they couldn't take him with them.

His recall is wonderful. So, whilst he's a strong dog (a working Cocker Spaniel) I felt it would be ok as I didn't have to go very far at all, before I could let him off. So trial walk ok yesterday.

How WRONG could I have been!?

When I needed the loo in the night, I nearly fell on the floor.!

Had to take some paracetamol.

This morning is awful. Back, pelvis, thighs, feet! I can barely walk! Just from a very short walk to a field. The dog WAS VERY strong, but I managed him ok, and I thought it would be ok now & then. but Such pain this morning just from that short walk.

Obviously not.

So, I had an appointment for a blood test this morning, I am not going to manage to get there.

I am so lost without my own little dog. No motivation. No little companion.😢

Morning Sweetie,

Firstly I am so sorry, I had my gorgeous Diesel PTS on the 1st January this year and the ache I still feel is unreal. I looked after a puppy last week and it made it even worse!

I'm so sorry that you're in the pain, I can understand how you feel. I wonder if it's because it's a shock to your body? Not sure how much exercise you have been doing after your poor dog; but maybe it was a little bit of a shock to your system and after a few times it will get better? I always try and walk as it seems to loosen things up but I do suffer the first few times xxx

So sorry to hear that we lost our family dog 2years ago heartbreaking. HOpe you are resting the fact you went out and gave it a go with the walking but then end up worse off for doing it so frustrating. Hope your family looking after you I'm on a duvet day friend took day off to do something nice with me ended up sitting with me brought me choccie roses I'll fell like I've let her down but she's a star and tries to tell me not to beat myself up .im hoping your pain will ease off a little would like a dog but hubbie says no at the moment mite when he retires early they do lift you but I need someone to do the walking if I couldn't so for now will have to wait . I've been watching the dog rescusers on tv because they show you the happy endings and the marvelous work people do to help. This week there was a lady 98 walked dogs for the RSPCA bless . Xxxx
