Oh, three (3) readers, it’s been such a chaotic week. I’m not even sure how to put it all into words. But I’ll try.
We had to take Pirate Doggie of Love back because she got into a fight with Max and he didn’t fare so well. He’s okay but suffered some fairly serious wounds to his head, snout and neck. It breaks my heart into pieces to see the sweetest dog in the whole world wounded like this. Last night, when I got home from work, I saw Duty had brought home a big bag of treats for the doggies so I gave them each one. PDOL snarfed hers and apparently decided to see what droppings Max was leaving. Next thing you know, there’s this hellish sound. I run into the sunroom and PDOL is standing over top of Max biting him. Duty ran in and we managed to separate them but Max was bleeding quite a bit.
After taking Max to the emergency vets and getting some antibiotics and stuff and making sure he was okay (if a lot beaten up looking), I returned home and Duty and I decided together that PDOL couldn’t stay. She already had a run-in with the neighbor dog but I thought that was about her being tired. So, this was twice in two days and that didn’t bode well for the future.
The good news is that the nice lady we got her from was able to arrange a good foster home for PDOL where there are no other pets. I think that’s gonna be a key factor in her being able to stay with someone. She had a sweet heart but just couldn’t get along with even as docile a dog as Max. Duty took her over there today and the house is somewhat back to normal. Max is looking pretty ragged but at least he’s hanging out downstairs with us now and he’s made friends with Duty again. I gave PD a big, big hug this morning and asked the angels to watch over her.
I feel like my whole world went topsy-turvey since last Friday and now, with a big, deep breath, I can return to status quo. Between the two day class in Charlottesville last week and the bad stuff with the doggies, I am exhausted. For reals, y’all. Not only that, but I sucked on my AI picks and plummeted from first place to fourth in my pool. Quelle horreur!
Will write more about the weekend after I catch my breath. It was great and I learned a lot. And let me tell you, when you’re doing a meditation about buffalo energy and you decide instead to wander off (astrally speaking), don’t be surprised when the buffalo “assists” you with getting right back into your body. Just sayin.
Hugs to my Gal for a sweet, encouraging email about PD and Max this am. Here’s a Hamster of love for you:

Are Lucie and Sophia treating Max with extra kindness as he recovers from the trauma? Or are they supremely and felinely uninterested in all this drama?
PS Now I know how Sir Paul felt when he was knighted! (You’re welcome.)
Lisa, Lord have mercy, what a nightmare. So sorry that you had to go through all that.
I send big fat hug as well.
I’m sorry~ what a stressful situation, for you and the doggies! *hugs* I hope you have a nice, calm, relaxing weekend.
So sorry about Max and PDOL. Glad things are back to normal… whatever that is :D.
Sending love, hugs, and strength your way!
