Another Ella observation

I stepped on her paw (that’s not the observation)! She’s always underfoot, but usually I manage to just run into her. But the other morning I got her. 😦  I didn’t think it was very hard but she screamed and carried on and lifted her paw — it was heartbreaking. I was a little worried, but I was still pretty sure I hadn’t stepped down hard. The thing is, we know so little about her — on the inside. For all we know she could have really fragile bones. So I picked her up and wrapped her up and gave her a cuddle. After a few minutes I put her down and held my breath. Off she went, full gallop!! It’s funny, but it’s also another “tell”. Little Cullen, at five weeks old, knew he was supposed to hide any hurt or pain. Clearly, Ella doesn’t. It would be another strike against her out in the world. Good thing she’s safe and sound, inside, free to be as much of a drama queen as she wants! 😉

One Response to Another Ella observation

  1. Oh, Ella. I’ve done something similar to a puppy we fostered for a short time. Except I rolled the door over his paw. I didn’t realize he had turned back around to come inside. He limped for a good five days. I’ve never felt so guilty about something! I think I cried like ten times lol. I’m glad she’s okay. Phew.
