My Dad's Hip



       When my dad comes home from
work he always takes me for a walk.
I get so excited to spend time with him too.
Last week I was on the long leash running
down the sidewalk. But I stopped, then
came back to daddy. Can you guess what happened?
That stoopid leash went around my dad's feet.
Next thing I knew daddy was on the ground.
He said HBO words like he was still in the Army.
    Dad's hip is not broken thank goodness.
      The retractable leash is in the trash.



  1. Sounds like a scary thing to happen! Glad everyone's okay! Yeah, my mom agrees....those retractable leashes can be a nuisance!

  2. Ooophs, hope Daddy gets well soon
    I try and tie my peeps up wiv my lead as well Astro but I haven't managed to lasso them to the ground yet, that's very impressive work

  4. Oh No Astro...that was a nasty fall. My mom is kinda clumsy so thank goodness she doesn't have to take me on walks!!
    Hugs madi

    Ouch - that's gotta hurt! Thank goodness no break... but Astro, maybe you need to calm down a bit pupster! Sending POTP for dad. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  6. Poor Dad - we hope he will be OK. Mom wishes she could feel comfortable using a retractable leash with Misty, especially in the early morning when the grass has slippery frost on it. But they scare her more than her fear of falling. Please give your Dad some smoochies from us.

  7. We hope your dad's hip feels better soon. That's a nasty bruise!

  8. OUch! WE have one of those retractable leash things but mom never uses it

    NOW... we LOVE those HBO Words in OUR house... they remind Dad of his days in the NAVY...

    AND... we want to say that... we are REALLY happy that he didn't fall on his BUTT.. Just Sayin..

  11. Crikey Astro .... THANK GOODNESS YOU DIDN'T BREAK YOUR DADDY'S HIP!! But ..... OMD ..... you sure made a mess of it, aye?? I hope it heals quickly. It looks real ouchy!! Better give it lots of licks, aye??

  12. Yipes! Glad there were no broken bones. I'm sure you didn't mean to trip Dad.

  13. Oh no! I hope your dad is feeling better. That is a terrible way to fall. It's happened to many of us too.

Treats ideas for dogs

Can you all help my ma out with a recommendation?

           I know everyone has their own idea of what is good for their dog,
           but I have to consider what is good for Astro.

           I am looking for a small to medium treat that is not hard,
          or crunchy. We purchase treats thinking Astro will like them
           because they are salmon, duck, liver or chicken, he turns
           them down. What is a good soft chew, that is healthy made in USA
           no corn wheat or all that other nasty stuff? I have so many bags of
           crunchy treats I am feeding it to the birds and yes the squirrels too.

         Ok let's hear what your ideas are.
