Off to a good start by watching movies in the car
Fishing at the pond
Playing with the bait
Goliath was fishing for bass, but caught this HUGE catfish instead.
It was 28 inches long and weighed 10 pounds!
Goliath also caught this nice-sized fish!
While Goliath was busy cleaning his catch, Little Middle and Baby
had fun playing with the puppies...
and kept a wary eye out while visiting the pigeon house.
The X-rays showed that Goliath's wrist was broken, as well as the bones in his forearm were out of place. The ER doc summoned the on-call orthopedic doc, who explained that he would have to manipulate the bones to get them back in place--a procedure that would need to take place in the operating room. For obvious reasons, he wanted Goliath to have full anesthesia so he could neither feel nor remember anything that would happen!
This is my brave boy getting ready to be wheeled into surgery. Explaining to him why we couldn't go with him was really hard--look close and you can see the tear stains on his cheeks!
Neither did I, buddy.
