If there is an accident waiting to happen, it will happen to him!
Sammy got himself savaged by another dog yesterday, bad enough? You`d have thought so wouldnt you! Not content with that, his left ear was bitten clean though, and his little body is covered in puncture wounds!
But hey! There`s more! For some time now, Sammy`s eyes have been needing cleaned very day, and although we know his breeding is in question. His eyes have always been, shall we say? Poor! Small black eyes set back into the sockets, so when we took him to the vets, with the bites etc, we were also told that he has “Dry Eye!” The poor little devil doesnt produce enough of his own tears, to keep his eyes moist! Thats not all! No dear readers, it gets worse!
Then today after his patching up, the vet also informed us that he has “Entropy “, his lower eye lids are turned slightly inwards. Suffice to say, that the vets bill, the one we have finally managed to reduce substantially since the last crisis! Has now swollen to the size of a small Mediterranean countries debt problem!
But undaunted, we agreed to the op! For such a small rescue dog, he does get his fair share of vets attention! I would also point out that he is only two years old, so then that begs the question, “ what else is going to happen?”
Its Monday today, and as the song goes, “ I dont like Mondays!” I dont. In my quest for the country idyll, I fear I have become the sole financial supporter of my local vet! For `tis he who has the large house, `tis I with the large overdraft! It is true that Sammy`s value, is on a par with the value of Gold, per ounce of body weight! I have also thought that perhaps, I could recoup that value by offering shares in him on the stock market, for without doubt his value rises with every week!
But poor Sammy, he is such a jolly little chap, always on the go, always has his tail wagging, but as thick as pig s**t! So there we have it, I only await the “Bailiffs” and the debt collectors, my home to be repossessed, and the car to be towed! For my wife to leave with what money I have left and for all the horses to be stolen! LOL!!
True, it could be worse, but Sammy, the money pit, is ok, he comes home tonight!
