a rally


When I was a child, I wanted to save the world, make a difference. I think I still do want that but have never thrown myself behind any cause.

Causes I get behind nowadays are for the welfare of my dogs and myself – for our survival, if you will.

I had to take my dog to the vet yesterday. His dewclaw nail was torn. It might sound too trivial, but I was perturbed by the whole situation. You see, he is not a people friendly dog; a very competent guard dog, but he does not like to be approached or touched. I fretted. I fretted about him getting infected. I fretted about going to the vet and him biting somebody. I first tried to fix it by myself. He was obviously annoyed by his injury and tried to get me a couple of times when my hand reached for his paw. I soon realized that we needed help.

So, I called to make an appointment, put the muzzle on him and marched off to the vet office.

They gave him a sedative shot, operated on the claw and saved his paw. No one and no animal was harmed in the process.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Blogger With a Cause.”
“If your day to day responsibilities were taken care of and you could throw yourself completely behind a cause, what would it be?”

  1. Funny about dewclaws. Both of my dogs had dewclaw problems. Dewclaws must be pretty fragile. I’m glad he’s finally taken care of and that you came out of it intact too ❤
