Mommy & daddy came home late from taking Juneau to his puppy vet appointment. Our vet hospital is also an emergency pet hospital. Juneau had a 7:30 appointment, but he didn't get seen to almost 9:00pm. That wasn't what made mommy upset. She said that when she had Shanna & had an emergency with her, she was on the other side of the waiting watch so she knew what it was like & didn't mind waiting while more important cases were seen. 2 people came running in that their dogs were out loose & chased another dog & got hit by a car. The grown dog was brought in dead. The younger dog/pup was brought in through the back & had go right into surgery. The people did not stick around to see the outcome. Mommy was upset that people let the dogs out to run around without supervision so that there would be an opportunity for a disaster to happen. Also, know one knows if they were actually the owners or the ones who hit the dogs with their truck since they didn't stick around while the puppy was being worked on. Another family came in with their dog to say 'good-bye' to it. Mommy was upset because she said that she knew what they were going through. It brought back to many memories. Well, at least the night ended up on a good note for us. Juneau gained 4 lbs. - no wonder mommy has a hard time lifting him! He got his next round of puppy shots. Next time, she told me, I will be going with Juneau cuz I need my yearly shots. I don't want to share his time, can I put it off - oh, no - no shots!!!!
P.S. (Tuesday, 7/24) Mommy called our vet to find out if the puppy that was taken into surgery had survived. He did & he went home with his owners yesterday. His owners left when they brought the dogs in from the accident, because as they told our vet, they were having financial difficulties which they later resolved. Oh well, as mommy says, the world is made up of all kinds of people-some with more common sense than others. I know that if Juneau or I were very badly hurt, mommy or daddy would not leave right away until they knew we would be on the road to recovery.
