Can it get any better?

Yesterday husband and horse neighbor went and picked up 3 bales. He has a hay spike and I told him what happened to me, so he offered to pick up a few before the blizzard hits.

Husband was backing up the truck, hay son started yelling for him to stop, then move forward. Husband was a little slow on the draw. Our puppy had chased a field mouse under the truck and her paw was now stuck under the wheel.

Horse neighbor was trying to help her, and I guess our older dog Link, thought that he was hurting her, so he bit him. Bad.

4 puncture wounds on the back side of his upper thigh. Link wouldn't let go for what seemed to be the longest time.

Horse neighbor wanted to shoot him. I don't blame him one bit. I have never had a dog bite some one, and at 14 years old, Link has never bitten anyone.

Horse neighbor went to the ER, got some pain meds, and a cleaning, no stitches, but he has to take it easy on that leg for about a month.

The county will be out today to take Link. More than likely he will be killed because of this. Horse neighbor says he will try to prevent that from happening. He likes Link, and knows him to be a very loving dog. But Link messed up and will probably pay for it with his life.

We don't have the money to pay to keep him from getting killed. We told hose neighbor that we would help pay his medical, but they declined.

So for Christmas this year, I get to watch my dog get dragged away.

Stay tuned for a happy post in a few moments.

I'm sorry about Link. That really sucks.

It's nice, though, that your neighbor understands the dog wasn't being malicious. It takes a special person to understand a dog's mind and not hold a grudge.

Damn, that really sucks. Is there anything that can save Link?

I don't know what will happen. We have to wait for the county to decide. They don't like dogs that bite, at all. Almost a zero tolerance policy on it. We just have to wait it out.
