Monday Mischief~Rehab Warrior

Gambler is the Rehab Warrior since he is a dare devil and decided to jump up on the truck and then when I yelled at him to get down he hurt his paw on the way down.


He wasn’t on the tool box this time, he was on the hood of the truck eating out of the chicken food bucket. I didn’t have my camera at the time and didn’t want to do a reenactment so you get this picture for the visual. “Get off there Gambler before you get hurt!”

This all happened last Sunday night. He didn’t seem like anything bothered him after he jumped off the hook until Monday night when I got home from work he was holding his paw up in the air. Rimadyl was started and off to work he went with me on Thursday for an exam.

Ruh Roo it's x-ray time.

  1. Hi Y’all!

    Gambler, you are no gentleman!

    Me? I’d never think of eating my Human’s supper, much less jumping up on any part of the car! Yes, I’m a boring, good boy and a “brown-noser”.

    Y’all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog


  2. I love your bed! It always amazes me that your big dogs are such mountain goats. But it doesn’t surprise me that they’re eating chicken food! Mine do the same dang thing.


  3. Thanks for the write-up on PetsMove. We’re getting lots of people joining and MOVING! It’s great fun. And poor G’man – guess that chicken bucket was just too attractive. I hope his rehab goes quickly – looks pretty comfy snoozing on that bed with the rest of the crew! We’re glad to have him on PetsMove as one of our Rehab Warriors!
