For Chewie

I couldn't decide whether or not I should do a post on this, but I like to think if Chewie could use a computer and read, he would read and love my blog. So I decided to post about him and what has happened to him. Last night Chewie and I went for our normal walk around the block. We were almost home, just about 6 houses away, when a dog attacked my baby boy. :( I will leave out the details, as they are horrifying and traumatic. Chewie was taken to the emergency vet to get checked out and he is doing ok. They said he was very lucky. He only has one bite mark that punctured, the other 15+ marks have only bruised him. He is wearing a cone to prevent him from getting at the staple in his far back and to keep him from licking the wound.
They had to shave half of his fur off, so he is a little chilly at times. He was also upset because he was going to make his modeling debut in a few weeks at our engagement pictures, but I told him it would be alright and we an do them another time.
Chewie has been a very brave dogie through this whole thing. He seems to be bouncing back today better than I am. When he is not wearing his cone he acts pretty normal, once the cone is on though he goes catatonic and hardly moves. I am working from home to keep an eye on him all day and to love on him as much as I can. I know he will make it through this and be an even stronger dogie. It is so hard to have anything happen to someone you love so much. Seeing his cute little face can turn the worst day upside down. I know everyone will wish Chewie well, so I just wanted to say in advance thank you all so much. He appreciates all of the well wishes too. I am telling them all to him. Yes I am a crazy lady that talks to her dog like he can talk back. :)
