That's a good edge to take, |_|_a! I'm happy to report that Mud started walking on it a little more today. I'm still having to doctor it everyday, of course. Which I don't mind. Just for everyone's benefit, work on your stay, targetting, wait, and handling! It's really come in handy with Mud. She's a great patient anyway, but it's been very helpful to be able to get her to target my leg or hand while I'm doctoring it. This way I'm not struggling with her, and it's not an unpleasant experience at all for either of us. And I'll ask her to stay or wait while I go grab something(vet wrap, antibiotic, etc) and I don't have to worry about her hopping around the house with her wounds open. She's not hard to treat at all. ^^
Well, when you have horses, you get used to accidents. You kind of learn to handle situations, because you have to. :dogsmile: (Horses tend to have a knack for getting into trouble, lol.)
Actually, things are looking up in some way....with all the attacks, people are furious and want something done. A 3 year old and a Doberman were attacked yesterday by a Pit/Boxer mix. A new club has been started promoting responsible owners, and they are trying to start Canine Good Citizen classes and other classes of all kinds. That's fantastic, because our town really needs it! However...the one's whose dogs cause the problems will probably be the ones who don't attend. Unforunately... :dogdry:
You would think that her being on her own property to begin with would account for something...but, it doesn't. Since the city is pushing for something to be done though, maybe I'll have the rest of the city with me. I'm going to try to join that new club, also. No, they haven't paid for Mud's vet bills...but we'll see how that goes. I wish there was some kind of magic sterilization pill that I could slip to all their dogs so they couldn't keep reproducing. :doglaugh: At least then the morons wouldn't keep having dogs that they don't give a %&*%^ about. I've already taken in one of their cats...she kind of adopted me, lol, so I just let her stay since I keep better care of her anyway.
Luckily, it was a leg and not a throat or something else more dangerous. She was terrified, but she's healing quickly. She's not the type to be down for too long, lol. Just as happy as ever. :dogsmile:
