One of our dogs, Phoebe, has eaten some rodent from our yard and is now very sick. We don't know what it was, or for how long it was dead. All we know is that she's been vomiting up fur and is in a very bad way.
It could be some form of poisoning, as rabbits (and I assume other rodents) carry a disease that can often kill dogs who eat them. If it was nasty and rotten, that could be a cause too. It also be intestinal blockage, which would be even worse.
If it is bad enough to require surgery... we may not have the money to cover it. I might have enough to help out with it if need be, but with school coming up in less than a month, to have most of my savings gone ... I don't know that I could do it.
This is an attack on us, pure and simple. Between jobs, school and projects, we've all been getting more and more busy. But more importantly, everything was looking up. Everything was improving greatly.
What better time for something horrible to come up out of the blue to hurt us?
What better way to disrupt the flow of everything we were doing and fixing?
What better odds would it be that our dog, who's 9 years old with hip problems and a thyroid disorder, would manage to catch some diseased rodent in our yard, and actually eat it, which she has rarely, if ever, done in the past?
Who better than my mom, who's been working like a maniac with her job and everything else, to catch the brunt of this?
What better time to stall or halt the long overdue repair and advancement of our lives?
So please, to my friends out there, please pray for our dog Phoebe. Pray that whatever she's gotten will be easily fixed, and will not cost us my entire savings.Pray that this attack stops right here and now.
We are not going back to that routine of monthly destruction and disasters. We are moving on with our lives, the way we were meant to, and will not be dealing with this crap anymore!
