Ouch!

This is my poor puppy's leg. When Ray was walking him on Wednesday night, a dog ran out of his yard and attacked Andy. Ray pulled the dog off (a Jack Russell) and the dog bit Ray too and ran away. Andy had a big chunk taken out of his leg. The vet bill was $700. Yikes. And the puppy isn't himself yet. This is him looking sad. Poor puppy.

LATE EDIT (Saturday night)! : We know where the dog lives, but apparently, nothing can be done. We can sue the owners for the vet money, but our lawyers fees would be more than the vet bill... Ray pretends that the dog didn't bite him, but it DID break the skin 3 times. He is in denial and won't go the doctor. Andy is healing well. After 2 days of lethargy, tonight he's jumping all over Lauren and running 360s in the garden. Thank you all for the well wishes!!!

And to top it all off, I'm really sick (AGAIN). Last weekend I started feeling sick after 2 weeks of pretty good health. So with the puppy and the illness, I'm behind again. Today I'm mailing some swaps off, and then heading into report cards. The good news? Only 3 1/2 weeks until holidays.

This is a polka dot page that I made for Heather's fatbook. More pics to come.......

I am so sorry for Andy, the poor baby, it looks awful. I hope you are feeling better soon. Don't forget next Friday is ATC night at Bizzy B's and its Italy. I haven't started mine yet, not sure what to do.

I hope Ray is o.k. and that all of you will be better soon.

Can you go after the owner of the dog for the vet bills.

Take care, see you fri. night.

Poor Andy! Looks like he got quite a chunk taken out of his leg. Poor little guy! Hope all is well now.
Love all of your new art!

Andy looks quite tragic, and who can blame his with that wound! I hope he and your husband are recovering from the bites. I also hope you're feeling better. The CD you arted is great.

This is terrible news Martha!
I can not believe people let their dogs run loose in the city. I hope you reported him!

Eeeeesh! Your poor puppy and poor Ray! You should at least threaten to sue and see if you can get some money out of them. In the US if a dog attacks a human it can be quarantined to check for rabies - don't know what the rules are in Canada. You might want to contact the authorities - if the dog was this violent he's probably done it before and will do it again!

What!?!
I hope the owners of that mad dog know the damage it did?
I'm glad Andy is recovering, and I hope Ray is too. He really should have had it looked at.
Call me if you want some tea and sympathy. The art is fabulous as usual. xoxoxoxox

M, could you not leak it to the news/paper? or report them to SPCA,stating that there is fear of rabies?

Sorry to hear about Andy and Ray. The dog bite thing is scary. I hope they're both recovering.
