Yesterday, she decided to take on a porcupine, and guess what, it won. At least we think by her looks As most of us gals don't like our picture taken when we don't look so good. No pictures were taken of her with mouth full of quills. She also had a quill very close to her eye. She was very lucky. However, I can tell you yesterday she would not agree.
It started with John seeing her at the door, he know what had happened and hurried to call Care Veterinary Clinic, he talked to Steph and off into town we went, it's at least 22 miles so I was in charge of keeping her calm. We were met at the Care Clinic by Steph opening the door as John carried her in. Julia smiled at her and gave her that poor baby look.
I have to say that these are the moments I wish I could talk to her and tell her everything would be ok. But a soft pat on the head and petting her on the leg made her calm. Soothing words and John braking a few speeding laws we were all relieved to have her in good hands.
A shot latter and a stay overnight proved good for her. When David Hanson the vet called early this morning I felt better. She had done so well and was acting just like a puppy entertaining everyone and other sick dogs. When I picked her up, I could hardly tell the trauma of the day before. Now we will see if she has learned a lesson. No hunting for her today. While working at the computer she is sound asleep and all is well.
Just another look into a day at Balsam Ponds
