it seems that every time I leave for a job, I have to take one of the dogs to the vet because something happened or is happening. Iggy just happened to have two visits in one week. I can only say thank you to Pet Health Insurance.
The events leading up to the second visit were priceless. We ran out to the park for a quick walk..ahh what a nice day it was. The sun was shining, a tiny chill in the air and the squirrels were out in abundance searching for winter food. And there gos Big.. running running after squirrels. Once she sees one, she turns off her pet dog face and goes straight into KILL mode. Not what you expect from a Brussels Griffon. She is like the incredible hulk, normal playful fun loving dog and the next total psycho kill kill kill squirrels dog.
Iggy being a little calmer and more of a hunter, stalked a big grey squirrel. She went charging at it, than Big saw her out of the corner of her eye and followed like a freight train plowing right into Iggy, knocking her over. Iggy slowly stands up a bit dazed and her right front leg is bent in the wrong direction and hanging to the left. Looked like she dislocated her shoulder. I was laughing and crying at the same time. Totally fucked up.
I Call the vet, pack the dog, get money out of the atm, hop in a car service. A shot, some anti-inflammatory and a scolding! WTF? Grand total of $300 on the Amex for the vet, meds and 2 car services. Sucks ass! That was my day before I left for CA.. fun times.
btw Iggy is FINE! chasing squirrels and biting her sisters leg. ahhh the life
