Freaking Out

For several months now we have, involuntarily I may add, two dogs. Mia, our pooch got company from the neighbor's dog Toby who has made our yard more of his home then his own. Maybe he has just expanded his territory. Either way, he made himself part of the family.

This morning I saw Mia barking all the way in the back of the yard. Toby was nowhere in sight. I didn't think much of it; there are many critters in the woods behind the fence and likely one got Mia all stirred up.

About half an hour later I stepped out on the patio with the intent to enjoy the sun shine for a bit, when Toby came walking up to me. Blood was dripping all over the patio, his face was drenched in it on one side and he had several other bloody spots on the other side. It freaked me out.

Great; hubby is at work, Toby's owner is at work and I don't know anything about first aid for dogs. The other neighbor does though, she worked for a vet and yup, she was home. After inspection it turned out he had several bite marks and his ear got punctured, hence all the blood. He will be fine and hopefully he had his Rabies shot.

Since the bite marks do not resemble another dog's, I suspect he got out in the woods, which he has done before. There is no telling what animal he ran in to, but it sure got him good. Maybe he learned to stay inside the safety of the fence now.

We may not be aware of it, but we encounter dangers on a daily basis. Each time we leave the safety of our home we expose ourselves to attacks from others. It is comforting to know that God's protecting arms are always around us!

Proverbs 1:33
33 But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, And will be secure, without fear of evil."
