Just wanted to give you an update on Collins. He is doing well. He was pretty sedated for quite awhile, which was really nice for him. After the sedation wore off, our "Collins" was back. :)
He stomped his feet and told me in no uncertain terms that I was late with his milk. (He always says that!). It took everything he had to "stand and wait" for his milk. He does that pretty well although his head is always moving about 100 miles an hour and he is verbally voicing his impatience. But those front feet stay planted. He munched all night on his "yum yums" and is feeling pretty frisky, so PTL for that and thank you for all your prayers. Actually, he is feeling a little too frisky and I am hoping he doesn't pop his stitches. But you know Collins.
There are times when it is hard to understand "why" things like this happen. I know we have to trust in God and that everything happens for a reason. I have to say I have a hard time understanding things like this. One dear friend mentioned that maybe this happened now, so it wouldn't be a small child that was injured down the road. I don't know, but all I can do is keep praying.
Thank you so much for all your support and prayers, and I pray that this helps and no one else ever has to go through this again. Unfortunately I spent two days, not too long ago, cleaning up the carnage with a dear friend after a couple of other dogs who turned into "sport killers" had massacred her mini's. We spent two days euthanizing and treating those poor little ones. The dogs were terrorizing the neighborhood and would attack, then stay quiet for a few weeks and then do it again. When we arrived at her place they were laying in the sun, waiting for another round, calm as could be. As much as we hated losing our girls, I couldn't risk that happening to someone else. I truly believe they are wrapped up warm and tight in the arms of my beloved mom. She will take good care of them, and I know that someday the tears will stop flowing and the pain will ease.
ON A MUCH BRIGHTER NOTE - Robin and Denise arrived last night and Robin and Rocky finally got to meet. Rocky was being kind of a little goober, so we took him into the round pen. Robin did fantastic, and made sure that Rocky was paying attention to her. The meeting was as wonderful as we could have hoped for, and I think they will be best friends for life. I am so excited for them and their future together.
Today they will spend more time together and we will try to get some pix up tonight.
Again, thank you for all your support. God bless!
