I want..........

A really boring day. A day of laying on the couch watching movies.

So today. I have plans to meet up with someone and have coffee. Yes, A real live human that is the same height as me and talks adult, LOL. So thats all set and I sit down and hear Sammy our Rotty hit her foot on our sliding door (which she does all the time) so i spin my chair around to look at her AND OMGOSH, SHE HAD BEEN HIT BY A CAR!!!!!!!!!!. i wont go into details because what i saw was horrible. So i call Ben crying and telling him he HAS to come home. He's working over time and can't come home. Sooooo, he comes home with another officer who knows about dogs (ex vet tech). So by the time they get here she is doing SOOOOOOO much better. So, but she wont go to the car. She is afraid of alot of things. She was abused before we got her and she hasnt emotionally healed from any of that. Bens aloud to say hi to her but she won't let him touch her, it was obviously a male that hurt her. So I have to carry this huge dog to the car and we get to the vet and thankfully the lady carries her this time, lol. Sammie lets the vet check her. (who is a male) By then she's bleeding out her nose pretty bad, her eye looks bad. BUT he says the nose thing is nothing just like our bloody noses bleed alot so do dogs, lots of small blood vessels. So she gets an overnight observation at the vet, some antibiotics to fight against inf if blood got into her lungs and the eye will be treated topically (amazing, it looks horrible) and she cracked a tooth and that will be removed in the next couple days. If nothing else shows up overnight she'll walk away from this pretty fair. I think this happened when our mail got delivered. The mail lady and a farm truck were passing at the same time on the dirt road and i think sammie got caught in it. so i cancelled coffee of course and we had a program to go to at codes school. So we leave the vets and head over there. It was an hour long program, about 30 minutes longer than Abbie and Matthew wanted to sit through. so now we are home and tired.
I was just going to take new pics of sammie and tell you how she guards our house. Something she did on her own. Its in the breed, but crazy amazing how she does it. I'll hold off untill she is better.

The vet just called. He said he thinks she'll be just fine. SHes peeing good and walks fine. her lungs are fine. Just a bloody nose and a broke tooth. So once they see how she is tomorrow they will decide when to take the tooth out.
