One minute after ten and I'm pulling into the parking lot. Jackie behind the counter says, you weren't kidding.
On her three good legs, she danced in circles around the reception area when she saw me. It took three of us to calm her down. It took two of us to get her into my car. And it took me and a sling to get her up the stairs.
The happy ending is that she and her turkey leg are back at home, and she's fast asleep at the moment. Happy days.
