ouch!

david s and his wife stopped by my place last night to drop off their 6 month old pitbull/black lab mix pup - inu ichi.

inu ichi's the epitome of a super hyper pup!

so i decided to take kian and inu ichi for a walk after dinner. got their leashes on. left them loose in the corridor and as i opened the side entrance door and started walking down the stairs...

BOOM!

i tumble!

my ankle was at a weird angle. the pain was absolutely blinding. and i almost had a heart attack thinking i broke my ankle.

that would be really really bad right now. can't afford to take any more time off work.

finally, after i got used to the pain and opened my eyes, i twiggled my toes and realized that pain is good. that i could move them and my foot too.

nothing broken. sprained ankle. bruised spirit.

moaning, i get up and make my way up the stairs and into the corridor. that's when kian, my almost 2 year old golden retriever, realizes that there's something drastically wrong.

he starting licking my face and not (!!) pulling on his leash and restraining the pup. then he rushes over to my apartment door and starts barking.

meanwhile, s, who has been working, opens the door to find me literally collapsing right outside.

he gets me inside. hands me an icepack. takes the dogs for a walk.

wow. its been a while since i physically hurt myself.

emotional scars are a whole different matter :)
