Topic: Wild Weekend

Whoooeee! My weekend was sure hectic!! To make a long story short, on Saturday a neighbor's dog, Luke, got sick, so Luke's family (along with myself--I was curious!) took him to the vet. The vet looked him over, and said it was probably poison--i.e. botulism from a dead carcass, or strychnine (sp?). So the vet took Luke in a back room, put charcoal in his stomach to soak up the poison, gave him a relaxant, started an IV, and came back and told us to come back Monday. So, we go home. About three hours later, my friends and I (my two dogs, Mac and Tank, included) went up to a waterfall that's about a fifteen minutes walk from my house. While we're at the waterfall, I notice that my dog, Mac, is starting to have some symptoms like Luke had--rear legs trembling, hypersensitive to sounds, light, etc. So I go back to the house with Mac, and my parents take him to an Emergency vet. When we get there we wait. And wait. And wait and wait. For ONE HOUR!!!! (The worst thing about the waiting was that there was NO ONE in the waiting room!!) Finally the vet sees us, and he says that he needs to keep Mac for the night, and that Mac-o would most likely recover. He did recover, thank the Lord, and he got to come home on Easter! big_smile big_smile big_smile big_smile

Re: Wild Weekend

That is great. Hopefuly they willl be amune (I know that is spelled incorrectly, I just cannot think of it) to the poison. I am rather suprised that my dog, Kaile, never got someting like that, as she used to bite old ladies, little kids, and random pitbulls.

Re: Wild Weekend

At least the dogs are still alive.
I know this seems strange but you had the word luke and IV in there, did it occur to you after you worte it?
We went to my grandma's for her birthday, she still lives in Kansas however so I spent 4 and a half hours in a range rover with the dog getting there. On the way we passed a feedyard[moo], on one of the sheds was the sign-remember the restaurant lady? "Where's the beef?"- "Here's the Beef" and a little ways down from that..."Here's some more Beef"

Re: Wild Weekend

My dog bit our neighbors two-year old in the face.  We had to pay for the stitches and he now has an interesting cresent-moon scar on his forehead. 
Then the dog went and bit him again. 
Had to get rid of the poor girl... sad

Re: Wild Weekend

I had a cat once who died after eating a neighbor's garbage and he'd put rat poisening in his garbage, cause, apparantly, my cat had been making a mess of his garbage and he'd thought it was rats. I didn't actually know for quite a while. She just went  missing one day, and then about a month later my mom was cleaning the porch and found her behind some stuff. She didn't let me look, and I'm glad. I think I was 8 at the time.

Re: Wild Weekend

once when i was moving we could not take our 3 dogs so the pound had to come and they took them away i never saw them after that day. it stinks because i had had then all my life. they were good dogs hope someone picked them up beefor the 4 days. we have a law that says if a pet is older than x amount of years is sent to the pound and is not clamed it is put to sleep.

some blood lines were ment to end.

Re: Wild Weekend

I know how that feels. We had a yellow lab who we had to put to sleep because he went crazy and started growling/snarling/trying to bite people.

"We pray for those lost, we pray for our own souls and those lost to the winds. We may never strike the bell of terms, never truly understand the ways in which the world turns. The works of labor, the taste of nothing fresher than a well earned bite albiet an Apple or a small sliver of sardine we may be thankful. We may raise our hands high, We may look at our revolving dimension and hope for brighter times. Challenge sin, repent sin, and repel it's aluring charms. Dream, be thankful you can. Pray for those lost, pray for our own souls, and those lost to the winds. And still we may dream in the forever sleep, in the sleep and embrace of sweeter woven things wrapped about ourselves like a warm mother's caress."

I don't know, i just felt like writing it, losing a friend or pet is incredibly harsh. It's almost how I keep going, thought like passing it on.

Re: Wild Weekend

I ticks me off when people bait other people's pets.

I was upset the other night when I was driving home from the gym, it was dark and I saw a pair of glowing eyes in the middle of my lane. I stopped to see a cat run away. What upset me was it was sniffing a kitten that had been hit by a car. The poor kitten was dead but whoever hit hadn't even tried to find who owned it.

I ended up going to the house that the cat ran to and let them know. However it wasn't one of their cats. It just makes me mad that people are so heartless when they run over someone's pet mad

Re: Wild Weekend

Or even wild animals. I seem to like animals a LOT more than humans.

Re: Wild Weekend

Yeah, my boyfriend's puppy got run over this week.  And the week before last I ran over a dog, but fortunately it was only knocked unconscious.

Re: Wild Weekend

My dog got hit by a car, fell off a roof (only one story smile ), fell of the back of my dad's truck, aswell as jump out of it occasianly jump out of it. Also, when we were all at a lake that we go to every year, we left Kalie in the trailer there because it was to hot out for her, and went down to the beach. The door was made of metal, and very thick. When we were about half way to the beach, Kalie ran past us, as if to say "I don't need you, I can get there on my own!" She must of head-butted the door open.

Re: Wild Weekend

Well, my black Lab, Tank, got ran over by a truck (and I really do mean ran over--he was sleeping under the truck when the accident happened!), had dermodectic mange when he was a year old (he lost a lot of his hair and STUNK SO bad), and swallowed (yes, I said swallowed) a fair sized steak bone, resulting in him being very ill for three days. He didn't go through nearly as much stuff as your Kaile did, but he sure is a problem child around here smile smile.

Re: Wild Weekend

Hehe, yup. My Dad is a Marine, so for Christmas we put camo paint on Tank (F.Y.I. he's nicknamed "T-Bone", so if I ever refer to someone as 'Bone you'll know who I'm talking about tongue ), took a pic of him and gave it to my dad. He was very amused big_smile big_smile

She was a mutt, but we could tell she was partly a Golden Retriever.

Re: Wild Weekend

I had a dog named Mac.  I strongly dislike dogs, though.  I hate how they bark constantly, you have to walk them, and train them, and they chew your stuff and all that.  Cats are way cooler.  They don't constantly need attention like dogs, have retractable claws, and are stealthy.  My cat has six confirmed kills so far.
