Abby Lab here.

I'm having a quiet day at home today.  Yesterday while Mom was in the recliner reading a mystery book and I was snoozing on the couch I was having this great "chase the rabbit" dream and I fell off the couch.  I tried to catch myself, as I woke up as I went over the side.  But Mom couldn't move fast enough to grab me and I landed hard, at a weird angle and my right leg was sore last night.  The Vee EE Tee said it's nothing serious and just take it easy for a few days.

I thought I nailed the landing,

But Mom said it looked more like this.


  1. We hope your paw feels better soon. OUCH! We have that chasing dream, too. But so far, no accidents.

  2. Ouch, Abby! Hope you heal up fast!

    OUCH! Sending a little POTP for that sore leg, Abby. I'd giggle, but that would be unkind... hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. I must say, I don't think I've ever rolled off the couch. But there's always a first time. Ghostwriter was reminded of the old old old Olympics where they said, "the thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat," and the guy falls off the ski jump.

  5. Oh Abby, we are so sorry you had that bad fall. We hope your leg gets better quickly with some rest. Feel batter, pal.

  6. Thanks for your kind thoughts. Abby is doing much better tonight. The Vet didn't find any serious injury, just possibly a bruise or mild sprain. By tonight she was zipping down the stairs after a squirrel like a champ. But she didn't once get on the sofa to sleep today, preferring the futon which tilts back so she can't roll off.


  7. That must have bee an exciting dream. Sorry you fell off and hurt yourself, but glad to hear you are feeling better

  8. Did you catch the bunny?!?!
    We hope you're ok.

    PS: We are trying to get back into the blog-visiting groove. We're sorry we've been absent. Mom's fault.

  9. Oh no. Feel better fast so you can be back in the saddle soon.

  10. Owie!! Don't you just hate when that happens! We are sure you did the most graceful couch dismount possible!

  11. Oh, I hate it when dreams get a little TOO real!
