puppy update

i'll write about my puppy today, since he's all i can think about. vito is almost 7 months old now and it seems like his energy levels grow exponentially every day! well, yesterday he had a little play date with 2 of his buddies (labs). he was tearing around the yard at top speed, jumped on to the deck & tried to rocket his way between a chair and the house. next thing we know, poor vito is screaming and holding up his paw. let me tell you, that sound was the single most awful thing i have ever heard. we got him inside and checked him out...and let out a yelp when his shoulder was touched. he seemed to get a slight bit better, but at 2am this morning, he rolled over and woke me up with his crying. so he went in to the vet today. turns out he probably sprained his shoulder & the good news is that it doesn't look like anything is broken.

i'm thankful his injury is not more serious...and even though we took him in, i'm still worried. i can't help it. he's my little puppy-poo. he was wagging his tail and trying to half-heartedly bite stuff he wasn't supposed to...which means he's in good spirits.

here he is about a month ago, (being good for once):
