I had been keeping Tally out of the park because she gets sick to her stomach every time she visits. I found another park that's much cleaner and thought I would try it out this morning because she really needed a good run and play. No good deed goes unpunished and now Tally is at the vet again. Another dog showed up and according to the owner "we've had her five years but this is the first time at the park, I'm not sure how she is with other dogs." When Tally tried to play (play bow and jumping) this dog bared her teeth, started snarling and attacked Tally. There's your answer you stupid cow.
One does not take an unsocialized dog to the park. Just no! Tally came away with a bloody ear, face and back leg and I've got a knot that goes from the pit of my stomach all the way up to my throat. She doesn't need sutures but will need to be sedated so Dr. Dunn can give all her cuts a good cleaning. Not sure how long she will be there but I'll be a wreck until I she's back home and safe.
In other news, our laptop died, the one I do all my blogging from. I have a barely used PC in the upstairs office, where I am now, but I just don't get inspired to blog sitting up here. Hopefully it's just the power supply like Rob suspects. Enough whining, things could be worse. Speaking of which, have you read the news about the raw milk buying club in California that was raided SWAT-style and shut down?
Nourished Kitchen has all the latest details. It makes for a very interesting and infuriating read. I'm a bit too upset about other things to be completely coherent with my thoughts on this. Imagine, though, things like corn syrup can be advertised as being safe and healthy on TV and is present in every food we eat, but people who are trying to make healthier choices and bring them to their community are treated like criminals. It's disgusting.
One of my facebook friends said it best...
Well after all, raw milk *is* a gateway drug. Who knows what kind of inexpensive, non-pharma-dependent health it could unleash??
Whether you are a fan of raw milk or not, what are your thoughts on this issue?
