Dog sprains its tail from wagging ‘excessively’ because its owners are staying home

March 23rd, 2020

With the prevalence of the COVID-19 scare, more people have been sent home to work remotely. Because of this new scheme, many fur babies seem to be enjoying the current situation. Although they don’t know the reason why we are avoiding the outside world, for them, remote work means bonding, belly-rubs, and most importantly, chimken nuggers!

In an article published by Unilad, a sausage dog named Rolo couldn’t contain his happiness when he realized that everyone in his family would be staying home for weeks. However, what was supposed to be a blissful reunion for Rolo turned into a surprise trip to the vet.

On Twitter, Emma Smith, from Essex, England, mentioned that the puppy had sprained its tail from “excessively” wagging it.

So my dog has been so happy that everyone is home for quarantine, that his tail has stopped working, so we went to the vet and the vet said ‘he had sprained his tail from excessively wagging it’ 😂😂😭😭💔💔

For those who are worried about the dog’s condition, Smith reassured that Rolo is doing fine. Right now, he is on medication and is expected to heal within a week. Apart from that, he is also getting all the undivided love and attention from his fur parents. So, we don’t think Rolo has any problems with that.

Didn’t expect this happen😂, for those asking, he is currently on pain relief and the vet said he should be healed within a week, this is him on the 2nd day. He is super happy and there is now movement from side to side but he is struggling to lift it up in the air. pic.twitter.com/dY0o96HOpj

The only good thing about self-isolation and quarantine is that it gives us more time to spend not just with our loved ones but also with our pets who would always wait for us to come home.
