You turn your back during feeding time for one second and the huge mutt-dog accidentally mauls one of your beagles.
So you scoop up the victim and run her to the vet swaddled in a towel.
You drive to the vet ever so carefully speaking to the dog telling her how much you love her and asking her to hang on.
She's not very alert at this point and you realize she's in shock.
You throw the car in park, run in, hand off the pooch to the vet --- all the while your car is running in the lot outside and you look down only to realize you are now also covered in bright red blood.
But minutes later you find out your little buddy is stabilized and you hear her yelp in the triage room next door to your private exam room. And then another few more yelps.
The sweetest sound ever.
And at the end of the day you get a call to come pick her up as she is finished with her IVs, pain meds and monitoring.
And, God is good all the time.
Even if the beagle instigated the accidental attack over a tiny kibble.
That kibble cost her Mom $417.
There goes my spending money for my vacation.
She's worth it though.
Had she been more alert, $10 says she would have been really upset about the Hello Kitty blankie.
Mad props to the purple, polka dot tourniquet though.
