We All Rested on the Verandah
We all were resting on the Verandah yesterday. Here Gage is flaked out in his familiar sleeping pose. June's wee dog thought he would get to know the Runt better.
We are a pretty laid back bunch.
Gage is long suffering as the wee dog tries to get him to play by climbing on his face. Gage is very gentle. The two times I have had to drag him off the neighbour's dog as he had it in a death grip to the neck have really surprised me. Unfortunately, the dog he has tangled with is not the bull terrier which killed my last dog. Now I have the biggest dog in the area. Others will have to learn to show him some respect. Unless you are just a tiny tea cup poodle (a sad freak of Nature) then he his kind and gentle.
The little dog is not the one I showed a couple of weeks back . That one died. I think the vet made a mistake. She gave the dog oral heart worm medication which she said was the same dosage for all dogs. The dog had a seisure type reaction right away and through the day got weaker and died. The drug company is paying for the $400 vet bill to watch the dog die and the autopsy to see what happened. I can't believe the dose is the same for a 100 pound dog and a two pound dog.
June was distraught over the loss of her $1.500 dog (Yikes! too much money for a dog) The breeder gave her this replacement ( a little larger dog) It is almost full grown now. This is all a very sad tale.
I am glad Gage seems to enjoy this tiny mutt. If he didn't he could dispatch it in short order.
I am please the Runt seems to be willing to tolerate the wee mutt.
