PIERRE'S "THE BARK" - BITE PROGRESS REPORT
Mom told you about the dog down the street biting me. First, I would like to thank you all for your prayers and well wishing. Your prayers are working as I am healing up slow but sure. I still like to lick the spot even though Mom puts stuff on it. I had to take pills, but they made me sick so Mom had to take me back to the vet to get a shot. I didn't like the shot, but was a good boy, anyway.
I wanted to show a picture of the bite, but Mom didn't think that was a good idea. She said she didn't want me to upset your tummy when you saw it.. One good thing though, is Mom took me to a new vet that was closer to our home than the one we previously went to. I liked our previous vet, but I like the new one, too. Of course both our previous vet and new one vet are ladies and I prefer a lady vet rather than a man. I guess I am a ladies man.
Mom got really upset with the man that owned the dog that bit me. He has two other dogs and one of them had bit Rickie, my Mom's dog before me. Now, another of his dogs bit me. We have a leash law in our village, but he lets his dogs run free. People were telling Mom to go to court, and Mom thought about it. Mom was really upset !!!!!
Finally Mom calmed down and took the two bills over to the man that owned the dogs. She calmly spoke to him and explained what happened. He didn't believe her, but Mom said she had two witnesses that saw the whole thing. She said people wanted her to sue him, but we lived in a neighborhood and we all had to get along. In the end, he gave Mom the money for the vet bills and a little extra. Mom took the money to the bank because she had to pay CareCredit as that is what she charged the vet bills on.
She also told the man how we go out of our way to avoid his dogs. He leaves for work at 10:30 PM, so Mom doesn't walk me for bed until after he leaves. In the morning he comes home at 7:30 AM so Mom either walks me before he gets home or makes me wait for a hour after he gets home so he can let his dogs out, walks them and get them back in before I go out. The rest of the time, Mom has to be careful when she walks me so we don't run into them.
I just wanted to give you a progress report and let you know how I was doing. Again, I thank you all for your prayers and thoughts.
