Peg Leg Bode

So we were hanging out with Megan's grandparents in Alpine the other day and our dog Bode got a little carried away playing out in the yard.  Bode was chasing Megan and twisted his body in mid-air while jumping at her and landed on his right hind leg on the concrete of the back patio, the poor sucker.  At first Bode seemed fine, and he would only whine a little bit when you would touch his leg, but other than that he didn't make a sound.  I thought it was just a sprain, and Megan thought it was worse, but we decided to let it sit overnight.  When Bode was still favoring that leg the next day, we took him to the vet, and the vet called me back later that day to tell me that Bode had busted his fibula!  Megan was right!  So they put this funny-looking cast on him and he's been humiliated ever since.  

The good news is that we have been trying to train Bode not to jump up on us all of the time, so hopefully this time with a cast and a busted leg will learn him.  He also always used to be so quiet and sneak up behind you, and we would always trip on him, but not anymore thanks to his new peg leg!
