Like Pam and the strange things that happen to her, Morgan (our spunky greyhound) always seems to get herself into some predicament that usually ends in a trip to the vet.
In Clovis, she broke her toe after a ten-minute rabbit chase… how do I know? Because she left a blood trail in the snow everywhere she walked. You would never have guessed it though, because she wasn’t limping or whining… she just had an extremely crooked and bloody toe. Then there was that time I took her out shooting with me and Astro… I think she mistook the gunshot as the starting shot of a race or something. Upon hearing it, she took off running like a bat out of hell… only to run full-speed into a barbed-wire fence. I didn’t realize anything serious had happened until, when I finally got her over by me, there was at least a pint of blood cupped between her neck and collar. Fortunately, the puncture from the barbed-wire didn’t go too deep or hit a major artery (or so the vet told us).
Anyway, today I kicked the dogs outside for a bit while I ran to Lowe’s to get more oak for my nightstand project. I was only gone for about an hour. When I got home, I dropped the wood off in the garage and went to let the dogs in. I was surprised to see a greyhound (Merlin) and an oversized Bull Terrier that looked strikingly like Morgan. After a quick photo, I (once again) rushed her to the vet. They seem to think it was a bee sting on her snout or something. Like all the other emergency vet visits, I’m sure Morgan will somehow come out smelling like roses (unlike my wallet)… only to cause trouble or get into some predicament on a later day. Oh well, at least she’s not gay like Merlin…
To the right is the quick photo I took before I rushed her to the vet. If you mouse over it, I included a picture of what she normally looks like (without the Bull Terrier-type snout).
UPDATE: After a few hours at the vet and a few shots in her mouth, we got her back. Looks like Morgan “escaped fate” once again. She’s currently doing (and looking) much better and on oral medication for a little bit.
