I decided to take my dog for a walk earlier,its a lovely day here so I thought a gentle stroll would be lovely,but it has ended with me laid up on the sofa in agony!
My dog Tess is 15 years old and iv had her since the day she was born,she can be a grumpy madam like when I had my ATOS medical at home and she very lovingly welcomed him by growling,some may remember I wrote about this visit.
I decided to go up the lane from my house,cross over a road not very busy but the vehicles come down the hill so quickly,I carried on up a bridle path and let my dog off the lead,we had walked a way down the lane and as I turned around all I could see was the back end of her taking off back up the way we had come,I shouted and shouted but she wouldn't stop,I started walking faster and that's when I realised she was not going to stop,it was my worst nightmare,I was desperately trying to run but I new there was no way I could catch,she was heading to the road where the cars come down fast,I actually spoke out load to my father who had died many years ago to please please don't let her be run over.
She made it across the road and was heading home,it was awfull I just couldn't run,my legs had gone wobbly and my back had just gone into spasm,I could see her trotting down my road to our house and I could see a van coming!i was frantically waving to him like some demented woman that had just escaped from somewhere!
My dog has no road sense and she is also partly deaf,thank god the driver stopped and got out his van and caught her!
I was so angry and relieved nothing happened to her,infact I went through so many emotions,the sweat was pouring from me,I couldn't breath,it was awfull.
I am now totally drained,my arms,shoulders,back,knees,you name it i am in so mutch pain,i haven't tried to run for years,I didn't make a very good job of it either!
I said a thank you to my dad for watching over her when I got in!
Thank you for reading..xx
