Romy's Recent Encounter with a Softball

Woof Woof to all my friends and welcome whether you have two feet or four paws - glad ya made it back.  I gotta tell ya about my little L.A. friend Romy.  He's just a tiny son-of-a gun of only 7 lbs (most of his weight is in his ears)!   The fella was hit in the head with a giant softball a few days ago.  That gigantuan ball from all accounts was travelin' at a speed of about 120 mph!  I thought he was a goner if ya know what I mean...thought he was goin' to the doghouse in the sky because he fell ovah on impact and laid very very still.  After two an a half seconds his front leg suddenly started to twitch and his human Mommy Renee started to cry as she reached down to pick him up.  He growled at her and showed his sharp teeth.  Ya know, we do that sometimes when we think danger is approachin.  But hey, he let her pick him up and he came back to his senses.  I can't imagine bein' hit by a monstah sized softball goin 120mph and I'm a hefty 60 pound Springah!  Anyway Romy's family had him on 24 hour watch to make sure he didn't stop livin' and lo and behold when the little fella' visited the guy in the white jacket  (aka the vet) the next mornin he was given a clean bill of health - nothin but a little shook up from the impact.  I gotta tell ya though Romy initially thought his Mommy did it cause she was the last person he remembered seein before bein hit and the first person he saw when he regained consciousness.  The two of 'em was walkin between ball diamonds when the accident occured cause the little guy needed to take a whiz and the nearest tree was a galvanized fence post near mid-field.  His Mommy ain't gonna take that route again.  Romy's bein treated even more like the grand king that he is eatin special meals of diced boiled pork with sweet potatoes, broccoli and apple slices.  I'm so happy for the little guy as life has really gotten royal...Us Big Dogs in the neighborhood now refer to Romy as the little guy that's given a whole new meanin' to the phrase, "Built to Last".   We have muttin' but luv for our favorite littlest friend aka BIG ROMY!   Post your comments below and...
