Poor Bow!

Our dog Bow has had a bit of bad luck. On Saturday Ben, Jordan and I were four wheeling with the Ranger, Bow was sitting in the back of the bed and on our way back to the truck he was bounced out and shattered his Femur. I was driving and tried to avoid a bump so he wouldn’t be tossed out and instead turned to hard and threw him out. We knew the minute he hit the ground that he hurt something, he was crying and trying to stand up. We made it to the Vet about an hour and half later to find out he shattered his femur and was going to need surgery. He had the surgery on Monday; the surgeon had to insert three plates and about a dozen pins to hold it together. He is hoping he won’t need any more surgeries but only time will tell. We were able to bring him home yesterday and he is resting and recuperating. He is in it for the long haul he won’t even be able to use his leg for another 12 weeks. To top off the whole weekend when Ben went to pick up Bow after the accident bow nipped him in the ear, we took him to the hospital after bow and they cleaned him up and taped it back on. I feel awful for what happened and praying for a speedy recovery for both my boys.
