here on this blog, i know my girls && i don’t really talk too much about our real lives. we focus mostly on sl-related stuffs.. sales, awesome new releases, pretty pictures, that kinda stuff.
well.. i’m gonna break down that first life barrier today, just a little bit.
on my old blog, i once mentioned my dog, ralphie, and the origin of his name. if you’re familiar at all with christmas movies, then a christmas story probably rings a bell. and that’s where my little baby dog got his name, because of how much i adore that movie.. and the fact that we adopted him right around the christmas season, several years ago from the animal shelter in my city. he’s part poodle, part dachshund and he’s my best furry friend.
the whole reason for my post, today, is to talk about the troubles my pup is having right now. earlier this week, he injured his back and almost immediately lost movement and use in both of his hind legs. i completely panicked and fell apart, but both of my girls vivi and pumms helped me out with trips to the emergency vet. after visiting two separate emergency vets, it turns out that my little guy needs to have surgery on his spine to hopefully return some use to his back legs. dogs of his breed and mix (dachshunds) are prone to problems with their backs, and he has what’s called intervertebral disk disease and i was told that this is a common thing for dogs like ralphie. but i’ve been an emotional wreck anyway, and since the appointment is tomorrow for his surgery, if you have any pets of your own.. i’m sure you know the kind of doggy mom worry i’m currently going through.
i am the type of person that keeps my rl mostly private, and i so rarely open up about the things i’m going through offline.. but he’s such an important part of my life that i had to translate it to sl, too.
plus, he’s just the cutest && scruffiest dog i know, and it’s hard not to show his fluffy face off.. even if he’s a sick li’l thing at the moment. so if you could take a moment to throw some well wishes ralphie’s way for his surgery tomorrow, he and i both would appreciate it so much ♥♥
