Im feeling very mopey today, I sprained my ankle on the last night of our holiday, I can't ride my motorbike and I cant walk Alfred :(

Which means I am completely reliant on my mum who also feels full off cold, I need to go morrisons and the local pet shop to get some food for the pooches.

I hate not being able to do stuff, I hate not doing anything and I dont have much choice :(

Not much point to this thread just a grumble

It's horrible isn't it. I was the same last year when I tore the muscles in my ribs and couldn't move for weeks. Even breathing was agony... I just couldn't do a thing except rest. Thankfully my OH was great and helped with all the dog stuff.

I hope you're feeling better soon and back to normal and enjoy the TLC while it lasts :)

Ive been advised not to walk the pully guys, which gives me a choice of kira or... kira! So im relying on the OH to walk tthhe other 3 for me atm :(

Cant run them either, usually we'd be out training in the bike by now but not this year :(

Don't think about what you can't do...think about what you can :D. There are lots of games and training that you can do if you can't walk far that will provide lots of mental stimulation for the pup and give you a focus.

I know how you feel. Last year I broke both ankles & it was months before I could walk Sox by myself :( It was awful!

Wishing you a speedy recovery, take it easy :) xx

You need to keep off it, I didn't when I buggered my ankle up and really did myself no favours, use a walking stick in the opposite hand to your poorly ankle it will help lots, have you got it bandaged, I bought a gel padded ankle support and that made a huge difference, but being the idiot I was I though oh I can't walk the dogs far so I will cycle with them. Needless to say I was in agony and off my feet again completely for 7 days, I managed to really fluff up the rest of my ligaments in my poorly ankle apparently. Morale to this ramble, even when it's feeling a bit better don't and I can't emphasise this enough, don't over do it.

Feel better soon.

My mum has taken Alfred out and pi$$ed off is an understatment!

Conversation went a bit like this;

Mum 'Im taking Alfred out to run around'

Me 'well I'd rather you didnt let him off the lead because if he doesnt come back straight away you'll slap him, then that'll ruin all the training i have with him, please keep him on the longline'

mum 'no his going for a run in the field'

me 'just dont smack him!'

dad 'ill beat the dog if i have to!'

They keep telling me his far to naughty and its my own fault for not smacking him.

Im just so fed up and down lately :(
