it's getting so i'm afraid to sleep! warning - it's graphic. i'm pretty good with the dream interpretation but i can't make head nor tail of this one. it doesn't make any sense. i was shopping - not here in my small town but in a big place like ocean's or superstore. lots of chrome and glass and such. suddenly i felt a sharp nudge on the back of my leg and it was dandy. i looked around guiltily and said "what are you doing here!?" and went to get him out before someone saw but then i realized he was in BAD shape: his fur was dusty and matted and dry and crispy, his ribs protruded, he was limping on his rear left leg, and he looked awful. i said "omg, dandy! what happened to you!" i bent down to hug him around the neck but he wasn't there - he'd split into two beings: a giant, sumo-type wrestler wearing a diaper and a ceramic caillou-type mask who was laying on his back with his knees pulled up, rocking from head to butt (not side to side) and moaning incoherently, and a really hot asian-looking guy who didn't look physically real - he looked like he'd been extracted from a Final Fantasy video game and he was just laying there, totally dead. i jumped back and said WTFgF!?? closed my eyes, opened them again, and they were gone - so was the store: i was standing in front of the open door to my house. i saw ganesh inside at the top of the stairs (he was just a shadowy shape) and said "where the f is my dog!? where's dandy!???" all panicked and ganesh looked at me like i was losing it and said "uh... " and i heard saari chime in with "he's right here, mom, where did you think?" but didn't see her at all. so i called dandy and he came out of the house but again, he didn't look like him - he looked like a gigantic tricolour australian shepherd and he was limping badly, favouring his rear left leg. i said what happened to you?? and picked up his foot and it was HUGE - massively swollen (i mean it was as long as my forearm!) with a solid yellow crust of yuck with hair all matted through it. there were buckshot wounds all over his foot, his leg, and his belly, all bleeding freely, and the entire side of his foot had a hole blasted right through it between the first two metatarsals (i looked it up). and that's when i woke up. i mean...... WTFgF was that all about!???
