Poor Rex the Wonder Hound!!
While on vacation, I left Rex the Wonder Hound in the care of my friend, Mae, who for you long time blog readers is also the daughter of Rancher Ed. A few days before Christmas, I received a call from Mae letting me know that Rex had a large wound and needed emergency vet care.
It turns out that Rex was attacked by a coyote, which took off a section of his thigh, leaving a very large wound. He needed anesthesia and surgery, and remained at the vet overnight. Despite his ordeal, Rex is still a happy camper, even if he is not crazy about his new cone headwear:
I am surprised the coyote came so close to our house. I am also surprised that Rex survived the attack. I’m sure the fact he weighs 100 lbs saved him. Anyway, I am thankful that Rex is alive and still with us.
Other News: The news media here in Northern CA are all aflutter about the coming storm. They are predicting a blizzard in the Sierra, plus snow and high winds at my elevation. Down in the valley they believe there will be flooding.
The storm is supposed to begin today, with the worst of it on Friday and Saturday. I’ll let you know if the storm lives up to the hype on the news.
