Grace update

Grace went to the vet today, her leg was draining and did not look good.

Vet said she seems to have an infection and is starting her on antibiotics and fluids.  Grace will stay there today and I'll pick her up this evening.

Grace is out of surgery

Grace is out of surgery, and can come home tomorrow!  Handled surgery and anesthesia very well, great prognosis for full recovery.

Saturday, March 24, 2018


This morning Grace was hit by a car. We were packing the truck up for an event and had turned off the radio fence. Grace bolted into the road.
Her leg is badly broken--compound rotational fracture of her femur. It's going to need a plate and probably a rod. Looking at a $3500 surgery. Surgery will be in grapevine on monday. Vet will keep Grace until then.

If you can help out, I'd REALLY appreciate it.

As much as I love the big animal, Polar Bear has been driving me nuts today.

He has about a dozen chew toys, but instead has emptied out most of the greenhouse to scatter around the yard and chew that stuff up.

Seriously--he chewed up a 5 gallon plastic bucket.  Like a home depot bucket!

Then he just goes back to being a lump on the porch, until he finds the next thing to get into.

The joys of an adolescent lab...

Polar Bear last august--when he was being behaved.
