So many kinds of Love...
*as always, click on image to biggify*

I don't know Ms/Mr. Shader personally, but the words touch my heart so deeply and describe so perfectly the bond of love between a good shepherd and his flock. I've spent many an hour (but never enough!) sitting with my sheep and can confirm that it is indeed, a little bit of heaven.
As is the love of a good dog!
Wonderful news on the Rescue front:
Jake (who's name I am in the process of changing to "HERO" is home and doing very well! I can't believe how quickly he has bounced back from such a horrible ordeal but he is as happy and loving ~ if not MORE SO ~ than he was before Sunday afternoon. He has to be kept quiet for at least a week to make sure that a similar event doesn't take place. I'm going to call Dr. Taggart to ask if it's OK if I take Hero for a walk or if I should wait a few days for that.
A couple of things I'd like to clear up:
First of all, I got a call from the clinic of the first veterinarian that I called on Sunday. You may remember that I was so upset because she never showed up at my place while I was waiting so desperately for help. We apparently had a major communication breakdown because she was waiting for me at her clinic! I feel terrible for all of the nasty thoughts I was having about her on Sunday night!
Secondly, there was no dog-fight. In fact, I'm pretty sure that the reason his sutures broke open is because the dogs were playing "tug-o-war". They have a large, rope/string toy that is made to tug-o-war with and Cisco and Jill play with it constantly. I noticed a ton of strings from the toy all over the house when I came home Sunday night. Nothing had been gotten into, nothing else out of place ~ just string and blood throughout the house.
