Hello World. My name is Ziggy but my parents call me all kinds of things: Boo Boo Butt, Pretty Girl, Sweetheart, Angel Face, Puppy, etc. I’m an adopted three-year- old that absolutely loves living with my family in Phoenix Arizona.
You may have guessed from the pictures that I am a very happy dog. One time, I got SOOOOO happy that I ended up spraining my own tail! It happened the last time my parents took me toPapago Park to play in the local lake. I ran up, down, and all around, chasing the ducks and splashing in the cool water. Oh, it was an absolute blast! We even went to the park to play with the dogs in my neighborhood before I got home for my bath. Talk about best day ever, I couldn’t wait to go to bed and dream all about it!
I woke up the next morning in a world of pain. My tail was throbbing and I couldn’t help but sit in my bed and whimper the pain away until my parents woke up. My mom noticed my limp tail on our morning walk and ended up taking me to the hospital to get it checked out. The doctor recommended two options: 1. cut my tail off and send me home with pain pills, or 2. cold laser therapy sessions and some medicines that would make my tail feel better. Luckily for me, my parents agreed to the laser treatment and in just a couple of days, my wagger was starting to get its swagger back!
Before that happened, I use to throw my tail all over the place, with no real regard for how fragile my backside really was! Although I still play hard and show my enthusiasm with a vigorous wag, I am way more considerate when it comes to my wagger’s wellbeing. I could have been sitting here with a nub if it hadn’t been for the cool laser that saved the life of my tail! Who knows what
Thanks for reading my tail tale, check here next week for another installment of Puppy
Lots of Love,
