The miracle of a closed gate ...
Dunno how many times someone has to nag about keeping a gate closed ... after all, my hubby spent an afternoon last year putting up the fence for my doggies. What's the point if you leave the gate hanging open ?
Two neighbor girls brought the dogs home to my hubby today, unfortunately they didn't get them rounded up before Dutchy got hit. He's at the vet with some really tore up, swelled up, hind feet. He'll get X-rays (some of the toes look broken, but it's hard to tell with the swelling), and the wounds cleaned in the morning after he's sedated. He was walking on his own ... but one toenail is missing, so the quick is exposed, there's road rash, and a nasty puncture wound. Oh, and one toe pad is skinned pretty good. He'll get some acupuncture to help with the pain and to get the blood circulating too - this'll be our first experience with acupuncture.
Poor sweet boy, it could have been a lot worse - but it shouldn't have happened at all. Greg says "I bet he doesn't do that again" (run into the street) I like to think he (Greg) won't leave the freakin' gate open again.
So if everyone would keep Dutch in their thoughts and prayers, I'd appreciate it !!
