I got up from the computer and turned and started walking when I felt something very soft and squishy beneath my foot. Little C made one little yelp. I nearly vomited. She seems okay. She is wandering around right now, looking for her favorite toy. She even gave me kisses when I picked her her to see if she was all right. She seemed to be apologizing for making me worry! Just to set my mind at ease, I tried to take her to the vet's, but he was already gone. Little C was squirming about madly and wagging her tail and demanded to stop by the park for a quick run and pee, so I'm guessing she'll be all right?

I'm so thankful that I don't wear shoes in the house. I wouldn't have felt her underfoot nearly as quickly and my foot is softer than a shoe's sole.

I did poke and squeeze her all over and she just got that glazed look she gets during belly rubs--no whimpering or flinching.

Neither dog apparently learned a thing from this as both are lying on the floor behind me. They have their own balcony with their own stairs to the window, two dog beds, my bed, the new sofa, and my lap and they prefer to stretch out on the floor and possibly get stepped on.

Oh, I didn't even mention the true horror of it all. She was sprawled out on her belly and I stepped on her spine.

Awww....
Glad you and Little C are both ok!
I have also stepped on Brink's paw and accidently kicked him/walked into him which sent him flying across the linoleum a little ways...
That was when he was a tinier puppy...he is always right behind me..

:new_Eyecrazy: Oh I know that feeling myself. Scooby sits right next to me when I am on my computer too. I have a swivel chair and when I turn around to get up he is right there. I have kicked him a couple of times and felt awful. Now I keep my feet together on the floor when I turn and he jumps up and moves the moment my chair moves. I guess he learnt his lesson too.
I am please C is ok too

sounds like you were "hurt" more by this than Little C.



It is definitely traumatic. My first Maltese was good about staying out of the way.....but my two rescue pups unfortunately took a few "hits" before they learned that feet were not NEARLY as safe as hands!!!!!

I was however, even traumatized once by my Sweetie, when she JUMPED from my hands so quickly she FLEW in mid air.........luckily landing on a sofa.........It could have been disasterous. She was on 2.9 lbs at the time! :


I remember reading about a Malt that actually died when being accidentally dropped from a little more than waist high.


I am so glad Little C is okay.............and that you are recovering nicely.
