Poor Baby

My sweet girl got snake bitten!

Yesterday afternoon she acted like she could barely walk and I couldn't imagine what was wrong.  She had a look on her face like she was sick.  She laid down on her bed that is on the porch and I noticed a bit of swelling on her neck.  I called my husband to come look and we saw the "bite"  of which she would not let you get near with your hand.  So off they went.....20 miles....during another round of heavy downpour to the vet.

He said it was treated in time, 2 shots and pills for follow up should do the trick.

Meanwhile she remains lethargic and pitiful. (the search will take place this afternoon for the varmit)
You can see the (bite) dark spot above the swelling.


She is so afraid of thunder and lightning and has been spending the evening in the chair with me with her head under a blanket.  Last night when it thundered she got off her bed, gave me a look like "what else can happen" and sauntered into the bedroom closet to sleep.

I am looking forward to family arriving for the weekend, so I am off to clean/cook.  Have a good weekend.....I'll see you all soon.  It's a fish fry, crawfish boil weekend.....yum.

We were at my sisters several months ago when her dog was bitten by a copperhead. She had a major seizure and "died" but then all of a sudden her heart started again! We didn't know she'd been bitten until the next day when the vet found it. We just thought she'd had a seizure but didn't realize the cause. She's doing well now but does have some kidney issues as a result. I'm glad your little one is ok. blessings, marlene

This just breaks my heart! Not only the pain, but I can only imagine how fearful she must have been. Poor Trixie. I hope she's feeling better soon!

On a happier note, I hope you enjoy your weekend. Sounds like a blast!

Flickr instructions:
I'm not sure these are going to make sense because I'm still trying to figure out the whole flickr site myself, but...

When you are viewing the image that has been uploaded to flickr, you will see email/facebook/twitter icons in the upper left corner near the image. There is an arrow to the right of those icons. Click that arrow and then click on the link that says, "Grab the HTML/BBCode." Copy and paste the code into your blog post body copy. That's all I did. I can't believe the difference it made! Let me know if those instructions don't make sense or don't work.

Hope little LC is feeling better soon! And that you guys have a wonderful weekend.

It is a ruff ... tuff... world out there for little doggies.
The woman I walk with has a dog that looks like yours...his name is Gram. He was found when they were in Gram Texas (o:
