If you’ve read this blog for any time at all you’ve seen and heard about our two faithful dogs – Molly and Grizzly. We love them both and they are with us rain or shine. With all due respect to Grizz, Molly is definitely the brains of the operation and has the quiet, gentle way about her. He is a full blood Blue Heeler and she is 3/4 heeler and 1/4 black lab.
A couple of days ago a large boxer roaming loose came onto our ranch and attacked Molly who was right outside the house just minding her own business. She’s a sweetie, but when provoked she can hold her own. It took 3 men to pull them apart and I’m told the other dog took the worst of the fight. Molly has several cuts and bruises and is very sore. Grizzly hid under the house.
I can’t tell you how angry it makes me that a dog wandering unrestrained came on our property and attacked our dog – and this is not the first time the dog has attacked another. The owner was apologetic, which is something I guess, but I am still peeved. Is is really too much to expect that our animals should be safe on our own land?
We’ve been nursing Molly and today we discovered her poor chewed up ear is draining pus – yuck. We cleaned it out with peroxide, she didn’t even make a whimper, and will check with the vet tomorrow.
