Default Please say a prayer/send good thoughts for my puppy.

I am just devasted! I was putting my puppy down outside and just before he was close to the ground, he kept forward out of my arms. Well even though he was close to the ground when he landed his little front paw when under him and broke his little forearm (for lack of my knowledge of correct terms) I of course took him to the vet straightaway and they took X-Rays, put a cast on him and gave him pain meds.
I will be taking him weekly for a few weeks. He is eating and drinking well. He seems to have a lot of his personality back unless he bumps it then he yelps. He potty training doesn't seem to be affected.
I am just sick over this and am praying he will heal ok. My guilt is almost overwhelming me. He and I bonded so quickly and he's so loving. As I mentioned before, I believe he was probably neglected before I adopted him, now this.
I'm sorry this in long, but thanks for letting me express y concerns!

Accidents do happen. I too have accidents with one of my Chihuahuas who jumped off me and fell off the chair and have fractured both front legs in the 2 weeks apart. She has operation and casts on 4 weeks, and now everything is back to normal and she recovered very well. I hope yours will recover in no times too.

Poor Dart! I'm sure he will be fine. We worry so much about them and when he is better, he will have forgotten all about it!

I wish him a speedy recovery!

Thank you all! My little guy is doing great! Except for worrying the life out of me! At first he was listless and drooling. The vet gave him some meds and a cast. Just today, he took off his cast himself. He had a new one put on and the x-rays showed the bone is back to where it should be. He still needs his cast but he keeps taking it off so I mostly carrying him all day except when he takes a naps. He's running and trying to go up the steps, he's like having a toddler all over again! But I adore me and will do whatever he needs,
