Karen, if you think it's okay, I respect your judgment.

And anyway, I'd rather be taken in once in awhile than become cynical and hard-hearted.

Hi Renee,

I do know that the story is true... and that this family is very grateful for the help given to help Duncan survive. The family has been posting updates to those that have helped on the blind dog list, and more often than I've had a chance to keep up with them to pass along! I'm posting the last one from today for those keeping up on Duncan

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Just wanted to update everyone on Duncan. His ears seem to be getting
better. Drops dont bother him as much anymore. He isnt eating much
and only will eat when we sit with him and hand feed him? This just
started about a few days ago. We have slowly started to re-introduce
him to his fellow companions, but I admit it is really nerve wracking.
It seems our other dogs do not recognize him with the shaved hair and
wounds. Or maybe the smell of open wounds drives them wild? Whatever
it is, we are taking it one step at a time. As for an Isabella
update. Everyone that purchased pictures, we thank you again. Now,
getting a three year old to make more than 3 or 4 pictures at a time is
a little hard. We apologize for the long waits some of you have
endured. We have not forgotten anyone. It may just take a little
longer. Also, we are having trouble finding something large enough to
put pictures in without having to fold the drawing. Oops, we never
thought about that part. Well...again I apologize for not being up to
date with everything. I have also taken on 14 hour days at work to
catch up on time missed, etc. So computer time is down to almost nil.
Sorry it takes a day to catch up on emails. Duncan is scheduled for
some bloodwork on Wed. We'll keep you updated.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One thing that bugs me about the whole story.


5.19$ per stich and 3.00 per stich to take em out. Someone's BSing either a Vet or the Owner.

I have some experience with vets and stitches and its FAR from that expensive, and ALL vets I knew, the taking out part was 100% free because it was post op.

My suggestion is to find a vet who isnt out for money, obviously the current one is.

I was also wondering what happened to the attacker dog and its owner?

Why cant they be held liable? Was it a stray?

Holding someone liable and actually collecting are two entirely different things - and even when collecting is possible it can take years . . .

Some vets are learning to charge like MDs . . . which is sad.

Sure is!

...I had a tough experience with a bad vet...

But now, for Rocky's last shot it cost--guess?

lol... $8!

Rather than $80...

That is such a sad story. It reminds me of when I was attacked by a dog. I shiver just thinking of it. It's really nice to hear the dog (and the family) is recovering. I'm sure they"ll go through it! Thanks for the updates JRT Rattie Mom, keep them coming.

I live in San Antonio and wrote our local newspaper to see if they have heard this story. Also, I plan to drive by the vet clinic. Sorry, I am also a skeptic....
