This morning was completely different. It's not my normal chore/work day here. I woke up to one dog not herself. I could tell by one look.
Instead of coming right back inside (when I took her out), Sadie simply laid down half way to the door. Immediately I knew something was really wrong. Yesterday she was fine when I walked her. In fact, while walking her, I looked down and saw her carrying her leash in her mouth (walking herself).
With my morning barn chores delayed, I quickly got animals watered and fed, and brought one watering unit in to thaw.
Of all days (wind chill is pretty chilly), the wood stove was let to go out over night, and I didn't have time to re-start it before zooming off to the vet. Its now back in action thankfully, but we are all worrying over Sadie.
And of all the dogs to have out with me, while hunters shoot very close to the homestead, I now have Jesse under my feet. Poor guy.
Until the vet calls, I must keep myself busy. Keep Sadie in your prayers please.
