Poor Biscuit . . .

. . . we almost lost her.  Why do dogs think they can outrun tractors?  I couldn't even look at her the first week of her really bad owies.  I wasn't going to get attached to another dog.  I'd had enough animal heartbreak.  But she has become my dog.  Follows ME, helps ME in the yard, waits for ME to come home, insists on riding with ME on the lawnmower and golfcart, likes ME best.  And you know what . . . I like HER too!


But I'm glad to announce that she is doing fine and will be able to return to her playful puppiness when the stitches heal.  But in the meantime, has to wear that collar!  It's too funny watching her sniff the ground and get caught up on something.  Drinking out of the water faucet (her favorite way to drink) becomes a major flood and gets everyone wet.  And when she sneaks up behind you to say hello, that collar just about knocks you down!  And I'm sure she has itches that she just can't scratch!  Just another week, Biscuit, and you'll be free of seeing white sides.

Farm dogs - sometimes they just have to learn the hard way.

Now, go pet your best buddies . . .

Poor baby girl!

Silly silly baby girl, thinking she could take on a tractor and win. Thank goodness she will be ok.

She'll be so glad to get that cone off - do you think she's learnt her lesson about tractors?
