Default No fun at all

Had victor out on a leash...up runs two loose wet labs. One with collar and tags one without. I turn to put Victor in the house when the neighbor's pit Shady runs into the field and growling begins with her and with the labs. I get Victor in my house take his lead and curtail Shady and put her in my car and turn and the labs are gone just as I hear a dog scream and scream and scream so I high tail it to the corner just in time to see one dog run down the road and no sign of the one that obviously just got hit. Cars go about 40 or more..stressing the more down this road all the time, hill and curve and residence doesn't mean a thing to them. I can't find the la on either side of the road or in the creek. I got the car and tried to find the other but couldn't. I came back and left a message for Shady's owner and came in and called Animal control and told them in case an owner is trying to find their labs.. I took Victor and looked a couple hundred yards in all directions. I am sick with a fever and I just can't go anymore. OF course Shady did not have a collar on and of course so did not one of the labs. I never got to see the tags on the one that ran away.

And this day just got worse. Found a lovely small snake stuck to the spider glue trap behind the chair when I was looking for Sancho. I tried to free him, had about half of it done when the skin tore so there was nothing else to do but end it. I do not like this day I do not at all.

This kind of day makes me all teary eyed. I sure didn't mean to do that to the snake, we were almost free. I had covered all the glue so the freed part of the body would not get stuck again. Just awful. I have not seen a single recluse since the specialist came. So hopefully we will not have to use them ever again.

Just glad Victor and I didn't end up in a 3 way dog fight. Sadie came down that hill with the same force she did the day I threw my drink. It scared all of us which is why I think the labs growled and because they did she did. Victor was already trying to get out of dodge and pulling me back because he is a very smart boy. Thank goodness it wasnt' Pepper, she would have wanted to jump in and might have made it start.

I tried to give SHady's people a collar..a good strong one, but no no they said she has one. Uhhuh..yeah right. That was why I had to wrap Victor's leash around her neck. IF she had had one on I could have grabbed her at the same time as Victor and thrown them in the house and might have got the lab before he was hit. It was just nuts.

I was sick before that all happened, sick on top of being sick but I wasn't down for the count. They say stress makes you sick, apparently for me it is true. Today is call the doctor day, white flag. THe last thing I want is another antibiotic on top of my malaron and the rest. I felt so much worse after all that it surprised me. Was a very hard thing for me to face. specially because of where it happened. The first dog that died in my hands was when I was a little. THe dog had been hit and tossed in the ditch that was full of icy water. It was a little dog that often played with my little dog. I saw it, I ran him and I held the dog's head out of the water and I screamed and screamed for help but no one came and the dog died. I don't know how old I was but I think around 6 or 7 since I was outside alone. I combed that creek for this lab just to make sure because he had to have been hit right on the bridge. My Mom said she has seen animals after they have been hit and are dead, but she never has experienced what I have. i hear it, see it, find them injured and alive. and feel that it is a moral duty to deal with them but it is hard and it is hard on me. We also have extreme girl drama in the neighborhood with serious accusations that I have been dealing with all week. Lots of worries there but Hyia has been cleared of it.

Missing Grammy, what I would give to be able to talk to her now.

THank you it really does help to be able to talk about it and know that someone cares. I sure don't understand this place. I love the woods, I love seeing them outside my window and am very happy that it is like that, but these people are so different. Because of Hyia being involved with the children on the street of which there are way to many is necessary. The way dogs are treated here breaks my heart. Either they are over weight unsocialized long toe nailed matted and fleas, eyes dried out on pugs, and these are the well kept ones. I am taking the neighbor's dog to the vet because I don't see how anything is ever going to change for her itchy horrid skin. I have to live in the same building so this seems to be the most peaceful and neighborly way to handle it. Will still cost me 30 dollars but I don't want to see this dog suffer and I don't want to report my neighbors as if that would do anything anyway.I said they could pay me back for the antibiotics in payments. All I want to do is take care of my own. I don't want their problems and their drama and I don't know how to turn away from where I see things that could be fixed either. I can't stand seeing something hurt. I want to be able to take my dogs out and walk them in peace. I never want to see a glue trap again.

You have a heart of gold, you really truly do!

Those loose dogs are very lucky to have you around, even though it causes you stress!!

I think there needs to be a road trip to visit you. Afraid it's too far away for me, but I am sure there are some not to far away!!! Someone needs to take you out for a pampering.
