I got a call from my husband while I was at work yesterday. He told me Cola got hit by a truck while they were out moving the horses around. He didn't see what happened, but I do know that Cola isn't very careful about getting in front of moving vehicles and when I am out running with him I have to really watch him when a car or truck comes along.
Good news is Cola survived the accident.
Bad news is that Cola is pretty banged up and super stiff. He managed to run half a mile back to the house and is able to go under fences and climb stairs but is in a lot of pain.
We got some pain medicine and antibiotics from the vet to help him.I am glad I am home from work today so I can take care of him and make sure he is eating and drinking all right.
I am pretty sad for my little running buddy and wonder if we will ever do 20 mile runs again together or if this will leave him to stiff to run that far again comfortably and happily.
He is only 2 so he does have youth on his side. I think Rocky feels bad for him too since I found Rocky snuggled up to him, of course by the time I grabbed my camera Rocky was done snuggling.
