I posted a couple of weeks ago about my friend Marcia’s dog Kimmee, who was attacked on February 14 (for the second time) by her neighbor’s two pit bulls to the tune of $470 in vet’s bills.
I’ve seen him a couple of times since, & I’m happy to say he’s doing pretty well. He had to go to the vet a couple of nights before these photos were taken (on Friday, Feb. 25) after he somehow tore most of the stitches on his throat. The vet had to staple him, & since then he’s been wearing a turtleneck to prevent him from opening his throat up again. Outdoors, he also wears a sweater for warmth. But I did manage to get pics of some of his other injuries.
Marcia has made the call to Animal Control, but the person whose supposed to stop by still hasn’t. Good thing I took the photos. Animal Control has, at least, contacted the vets to get copies of the vet’s report & medical bills. The owner has from the beginning refused to take responsibility. She’s blaming it on Kimmee, & we figure we’ll be having to take this to Small Claims.
But the most important thing is that Kimmee is doing well. Though he wasn’t too happy at being left behind when we left him home with the cat because no one remembered to get him tickets for Friday’s performance at the Performing Arts Center of “La Boheme.”
(It was a really good show, too. Thanks Mark & Linda & Lauren!!!)
