My Flying Dog

Ay-yi-yi. It’s never a dull moment around here and this morning was no exception. I had to take my greyhound Picasso to the vet for his annual exam and vaccinations. He’s always excited to go for rides but apparently this morning he was extra excited.

I had him on leash and was inserting the key into the rear hatch door on my Mitsubishi Montero when he suddenly came flying over my shoulder and went SPLAT right into the rear window! He jumped up and attempted to get in the vehicle before I even had the door open!

It was shocking to say the least. I tried to catch him and only half caught him on his way down but he was able to at least get down on the ground without plummeting.

He must have thought the black glass was the opening because his aim was definitely for the window. He jumped over 5 feet! His head was above my head! He literally flew over my left shoulder and then his whole left side, head included, collided with the window. S-P-L-A-T! He broke my rear windshield wiper, which is okay, I don’t use it that often anyway.

The vet said he seemed to be a little sore on his one side and that he’d probably be feeling some minor pain later on today. I gave him a Tramadol to stave off any ill effects of his collision with the rear window.

What a crazy dog! What was he thinking???

  1. Oh gosh, your poor doggie. He will be sore. Maybe he saw a reflection of a squirrel?? This reminds me of when my sweet Katie decided to go through the screen door but the glass was there instead. She did get a cut but thankfully it wasn’t a bad one. Who knows what gets these doggies all wound up.

    • Wow, Katie got really lucky only getting a minor cut going through a glass window! You’re right, sometimes I just have to shake my head: don’t know what goes through these dogs minds. It’s fascinating for sure.


    • He’s fine Paula. Just knocked the wind out of him for a minute or two. He’s back to normal now. Re: his name: You can’t tell anymore because his whole face is getting white but back when I got him, his whole face was black except one little white stripe down the center of his nose. And it just looked like someone took a paintbrush and swished that white line down his nose so I named him Picasso. He’s a beauty! Thanks for stopping by.


    • Yeah, he LOVES LOVES LOVES going for rides. When I get my keys and sunglasses on, he’s at the door wanting to go with… 🙂
