I’m still pretty jet lagged. I worked a half-day yesterday and will work one today as well, and then I fly out for a training at a university in the midwest. Our trip to the big island was incredible, and I’ll write about it soon, but don’t have time or energy today.
I had taken our runt terrier to her first vet appointment yesterday, and while I was running an errand before bringing her home, I had some frantic texts from my partner. She told me that Storm had a gash, but when I finally looked at it after going back to the vet–this time via the emergency department–it seemed more of a gaping wound on her rear right leg. It made me really sad.
We still have no idea what happened. She did let herself out on Sunday evening for a bunny chase, so it is possible that she got hung up in a fence. She’s not herself today, and not at all vocal. She is rather Chewbacca most of the time, and tends toward stamping her feet by the french doors at squirrels, birds, and bunnies that may have found their way into our garden. Seeing her this sedate is really sad.
I want to plug Alameda East Veterinary Care in this post. They are amazing. She had torn away some skin and the vet did an amazing job stitching her up. She also explained all of the post operative care to a t. Poor Storm! I hope that she will be ok while I’m out of town for four-days. I’m sure that my son and partner will give her some extras.
