The Prisoner

Our dog Ellie in her exercise pen to keep her from running and jumping before surgery for her injured leg

We picked up an exercise pen at a local pet store, which for Ellie will be an anti-exercise pen. It’s necessary to keep her off her legs as she’ll tolerate pain as long as it means she gets to play. Resisting her gaze I feel like a modern day Perseus, except Ellie is the anti-medusa, her sad puppy dog eyes will turn you to mush. She’s tolerated this all pretty well, and still has a ways to go, but oh how happy she will be when she is back on her feet.

  1. Oh, poor sad doggie! My condolences to Ellie, but also to you and L for having to enforce the rules that produce such an expression.
