Slammed

June 29, 2011

Today’s scary deed was unintentional and at the complete expense of poor Crookie’s tail. In a moment of lapsed concentration, I slammed the car door on his tail as he dismounted from the back seat. He screamed and wailed and did the worst thing you could possibly do when you have a tail caught in a car door, and that is to try and run away. He bucked and squealed in terror as I raced towards the door handle in what felt like cinematic slow motion, mouthing the word “NooooOOooooooOOoooo“. Upon his release Crookie ran straight for the safety of his crate and stayed there for a good 15 minutes processing the event, while I processed my feelings of guilt and shame. Scary unintentional incident of slamming car door on doggies tail? Check.

Understandably, Crookie approaches me with some caution for the remainder of the day.
