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.
