My dad was playing fetch with Domino, my puppy, while I was at work. When he decided to take it upon himself to lob the ball into a dangerous part of the yard. Domino cut his foot open on, likely, the same object my nephew cut his foot open on a few weeks prior.
I love my dog but thank you pup for your young lack of spacial awareness. Dogs don't innately look at their feet I know, but damn. $304 is the estimate for his surgery today. He's never hurt himself while I have him. My dad plays with him and less than 20mins later he's bleeding. Then! On top of that! They didn't take him to the vet right away- they said it was fine, just a small scratch. The next day when I saw it, it was not just a scratch. And he needed a trip to the vet- but my vet office was closed on Sunday. Off to the emergency vets for him! Who just bandaged it for $200 bucks, with a cone of shame. That's the most expensive bandage I ever did see.
Today I finally got him into my vet and she wanted to ream that "emergency vet" a new one for not putting stitches in right away, and for the price paid. Now he had to have stitches and it will take him almost three months to heal. ;n; And I have to get out of work early to go pick him up.
This just in- I also have to buy my text books for school that starts next week. It's not like I needed money to live or anything. Ha... haha...ha.
