Taking a Bullet for Someone You Love

I've often heard the phrase 'I'd take a bullet for you' and thought...  yea, right.  I can't think of anyone I would take a bullet for.  I must be s-e-l-f-i-s-h!

But then again, do we even realize what we would do until the time comes?  

Would I risk my life to save my grandchildren 
from a burning building?

I'm sure I would!

Would I push Gary out of the way so the oncoming train would crash into me instead?  

There's a good chance.  

Would I lunge toward my dog, forgetting about how old I am and how breaking just one bone in my body could lay me up for months, saving her from running out of the garage door as she follows me to the laundry room and I realize that Gary has the garage door opened?  

Well, yes I would! 

Maybe I'm not as selfish as I thought I was.  


OUCH!  BUT NO BROKEN BONES.



Dear Diary,
I don't know what all the fuss was about.  Firstly, I've always known that the nag Mom is crazy about me.  She can't live without me and that's a fact.  First thing in the morning... it's all about me.  Second thing in the morning... me, me, me..  Third thing...  well, you get the picture.  She's always got my back.  This brings me to the overprotective part.  A dog needs some space, ya know.  It is not necessary to drag me through the air by my harness (into the house) to save me from breaking my rope and charging at the annoying german shepherd walking its master down our sidewalk.  It is overkill.  I mean, really.  She's so dramatic.  AND the way she lunged at me a few weeks ago when I went to the laundry room to help her do the laundry...  shielding me from 'escaping' out the garage door?  There is that word escape..  huh...  I must be in prison if I need to escape.  Oh, and get this.  Then she takes me back over to the laundry room (after the fact) to re-enact the whole darn thing so she can take pictures and blog about it. This is one wacko wooman if ya get my drift.  Gracie.

OUCH!

Yah, the things we do for our pets! Definitely not selfish.

Gracie,
Think the shepherd would have given you an attitude adjustment, thank your Mom.

Your mommy loves you so much, that's one thing all of us who read her blog know for sure.

Samson Says: You better not try anything with that German shepherd. I'm too far away to come to your rescue, so you have to let your mommy do it. Promise! And if she didn't leave me a picture of you to drool over, I'd be very disappointed. It is true, even though we don't like to admit it: Our mommies know best!

Mommy loves you so much, Gracie. You are a very fortunate dog.
One of my cats got out our back door the other day and even though it is flat as a pancake - no steps - I fell trying to catch him!!! I got him but my "pride" was hurt!

I totally understand! Hope you heal quickly!

Lynda said...

Our "kids" always see things differently than we do!

Nonnie said...

Trudy says, yeah, been there, done that! You're right, Gracie, they are over-protective.

A wacko woman after my own heart. Not a bit wacko at all!

Gracie is loved, that is for sure!

Furry Bottoms said...

Secretly, you love it anyway, don't you? Yes you do!

That corgi :) said...

Ouch Bobbi!! But you did the right thing, despite what Gracie thinks about it. Hubby took a bite the other month so Koda wouldn't get attacked so he truly understands you putting your life in danger for your beloved dog :) We do love these furry creatures of ours indeed!

Hope it heals quickly!

Oh Gracie! What other dog owner would post pictures of their wounds because they saved your life?! Not many! You are one lucky dog Missy.

Sweet Tea said...

Gracie, I'm thinking you need to be extra nice to the Nag, er...er, your Mom. I saw that red, sore lookin' mark she got from "saving you". You owe her one! Ya hear?

Jenni said...

Your version of the events made me smile, though.......you stinker!
