… keeping a good dog down!  Seriously, Morgie woke up this morning all perky and rarin to go.  Um, hello?  You are a FRANKENPUPPY.  You cannot go out and dig in your hole (yes, you little brat, I know about your hole behind the house).  You cannot jump around.  Go lie down and relax!  And stop looking at me like that!

She made it through yesterday laying on the couch.  It was rough.  Lots of keeping her clean, and getting her meds into her.  Tons of quiet time, under constant survelliance.  Today, I think I’ll be kennelling her for periods of time, to force her to rest.

She’s wearing a shirt of my niece’s, to stop her from licking.  She fucken HATES dress up, so I’ve once again added insult to injury.  The first one being taking pics of her yesterday when we got home from the vet.  She hates the camera more than anything else in the world.

I’ve uploaded a pic of my frankenpuppy.  It is rather shocking, so I’m gonna trail it down some, for those that choose to click away now.

Morgana Owies

Sigh…

So I just got off the phone telling my mom about Morgana.  It’s actually her dog, that I’ve been fostering for nine years. She tells me that she would have put the dog down.  With the amount of pain she’s going to be in, and the fact that she’s already arthritic, she doesn’t think it’s fair to make her go through this.

I can’t say it didn’t cross my mind.  But I didn’t feel prepared to make that decision.  Based on a dog bite?  It’s not like it was a life threatening wound. 

Now, my rule is that anything over $500, and the dog goes to sleep, but I’m making them pay for it (even if I have to take them to court, but cross your fingers it doesn’t come to that).  So I didn’t feel that it was right to make that decision.  And besides that, how do you look a vet in the eye and tell them to kill your dog?  Because of a dog bite and because of money?

I’m sure I’ll have to face it one day… is it bad that I’m almost hoping that she doesn’t make it?  So I don’t have to be faced with that decision? 

See?  This is why I have a private blog.  There is no way I could say that in front of anyone I know.  They just don’t get it.  Yes, I love the dog, but bottom line, she’s a dog.  And with dogs we have the power to be merciful that we don’t have with humans.  We can stop their suffering.  And if it comes down to food for my family or the dogs medical bill, the kids win, hands down.  Does that make me cold and heartless?  I don’t think so.  The amount of tears would prove that it was not a heartless decision.  Just a practical one.
