In the Ruff

I walked downstairs and found my beloved dog Coco lying motionless at the foot of the steps.
I’ll interrupt myself to say that she is now fine. She had a fever. She’s cured and sitting right next to me. However, I didn’t know that at the time and there are few problems more terrible than seeing your beloved “best-friend” staring at you mournfully and trying to figure out if you should go see a vet.
