Well ..it's no surprise that our girl ended up in the ER. She has had a lust for socks, wash clothes, towels, any and ALL fabric items that she can find. She knows that we will take them so when she gets them and sees us coming..she swallows or tries to swallow whatever treasure she has found.
Todd and I have this house locked down like Fort Knox, and yet she managed to get away with one..it was lodged in her intestine and needed Emergency Surgery to remove.
Here is what that little treasure cost us...
As you can see, we do have insurance for her..and as I just noticed, her name is spelled wrong!!!
The deductible is high and there is a $5000.00 cap so we will end up paying a large portion of it.
Nothing like sitting in the vet office and having them ask you if you want to go into years of debt or let your dog die.
I wouldnt wish that on anyone.
We just got our tribute wall completed with photos of Cody, Duke, Hank and Macey with their urns and collars. As I was sitting there, I was picturing Storm's photo on the wall too and I just couldnt bring myself to let that happen.
I guess my free weekends will now be spent working more shifts at the Willow to get this bill paid off!
I am so grateful to my current manager at my full time job so that I can stay home and work remotely for a few days and take care of Storm.
She is still quite sick from the meds and stress so she is going out about every hour so she doesnt have an accident in the house.
There is nothing easy or fun about any of this.
The stress, time, money and fear of her future health have been really hard on us.
We have in idea of where she nabbed this sock from and so we're making sure to keep her out of the laundry room, even when we are in there and the clean laundry baskets immediately emptied and put away.
But, knowing how determined she is, there is no guarantee that it wont happen again. Which is very scary.
Gotta go let the lady outside!
My farm is my favorite place to be. Cant wait to share what's happening here.
