Guess who is back????

Update.......below these 2 pictures is my morning post.......how happy we are too have Gidget back. This update is around 2 pm after we got back from the hospital!
AT 8 am this morning we had Gidget outside on her leash waiting for the school bus with Gaige. After the bus came Mom decided to walk Gidg up the sidewalk about 3 doors up. She fell.....hit her mouth on a railroad tie around a flower bed....broke her wrist, we just returned from the hospital , we have to go back on Thursday where they will put pins in her wrist and set it. her are some pictures of her after the fall....she is ok....just a little shook up but resting now.


Gidget with her new haircut!

This evening I was standing out on the front porch. Mom was out there beside me. A man with 2 small boys was walking down the sidewalk holding a puppy. Of course I waited for them to walk past my house since I love all puppies. When they got to my house, I walked out to them and said " Oh what a cute puppy!". The man acted kind of nonchalant ...I wasnt sure he was going to talk to us. As I looked at the puppy I realized it was Gidget! They had cut her hair! As soon as I looked at her and said Gidget she was wiggling trying to get to me. I really had no idea when I seen them from a distance that it was Gidget. My Mother started crying....the little boy started crying....I told the man.." this is our dog". He said he had had her for a couple weeks ( she has only been gone a week yesterday) and her hair was all tangled so he cut it. Her hair was not tangled, she doesnt have the kind that tangles. I felt so bad for the little boy but I wanted Gidget back. So I went into the house and got some money and handed it to the little boy...I told him ..I know this wont replace the dog, but I want you to know we do appreciate you taking such good care of her. My Mother was crying the whole time. Between her and the little boy I dont know who was worse! So long story short...She is back! I think she is glad to be back.....she is sniffing all around. I wasnt sure we would ever see her again and when it stormed I worried that maybe she was out somewhere wet and cold. I am so happy we have her back home with us! I know you will all be happy for us!



Edited Note: I had to laugh after I read this post. When my
Mom put that shirt on with those pants today we laughed........but we knew we werent going anywhere so it didnt matter if it matched. After I posted the picture and looked at it I started laughing.....I said " Mom, come look".....she did and I said look at your pants and shirt...lmao.....we howled.......she said well I didnt know I was getting my picture taken today! LOL

I hope the little boy takes the money and gets him a puppy. That would make everyone happy.

Ol' Lady said...

3 cheers for Gidget...
3 ouch's for your mother...
That is great that you got Gidget back, I feel bad that your mother fell and broke her wrist...they sent her home with a broken wrist to wait till Thursday to do anything with it??? Wow...that's health care I wouldn't like to have. Hope it all goes well for her...at least she has Gidget to keep her company :)
BTW I don't see anything wrong with her outfit...I have several similar ones :p

Big Pissy said...

OMG! Your poor Mom! :(

She's such a trooper!

Hope she feels better soon! :)

Mimi said...

Wow. What stories! I am glad you rmom is okay and that her fall was not any worse. And I love her outfit. I sometimes do the same thing but that is when someone comes to the door so I try not to much anymore.

I am sooo glad you got Gidget back. I can't believe he tried to lie about how long he had the dog. Did he give you a hard time about taking her back? I hope he lied for the boys sake and not just cause he is a jerk! That is so weird you just happened to see them. Talk about meant to be and fate!

Give your mom and Gidget a hug from me. Those poor women have had quite a time!

Lorna said...

I am glad your Mom did not suffer anymore damage from the fall, that had to be scary for her......so glad your puppy is home safe and sound. I did notice your Mom's outfit, but figured she had PIZZAZZZZZZZZZZ, my grandmother had the same pizazzzzzzzz about her. :-) hugsssssssssssss

Carmen said...
