Had a scare with Honey.....

We went to a park the other day and my two took off running and before I could get to them they ran down a steep hill. I was yelling the whole time trying to get them to come back to me. Gunner ran back to me a couple times but no Honey. I had almost made it to the edge of the hill when she came running up. She was all wet. There is a little creek at the bottom of the hill. I wasn't sure if she fell through ice or if there was an opening. I didn't want to walk over to the edge to look down because I was afraid they might run back down. I took her home and put her in a warm bath tub and sprayed the fur down. She acted fine so I didn't think of checking her out till later when she rolled over on her back. She had scrape marks, scratches and bruising on her inner legs. I felt terrible! I washed her off and applied some Tritop that I had left over from when Gunner got cut. It's looking much better and all the redness has gone down. I'm blessed that she was able to get out and not drown. I would have freaked out if I would have seen her in the creek not being able to get out. She must have gotten scared and pulled herself out over some down tree limbs and branches. I have no idea how deep it is....just so happy she got out with a good ending. I think I aged a little bit that day...

We had been working on her recall and she had been doing fairly well. She doesn't even like it when I am out of site. I went back to the park alone yesterday to check it out. I walked over the edge of the hill and could see their paw prints in the snow all the way down to the creek waters edge. There were several downed trees and branches laying down. The ice was visibly thin. I'm not sure if she tried to walk out on it or just walked into the water and fell in.....

So glad everyone is OK. You could have gotten badly hurt trying to rescue her.



Love is patient, love is kind.
Love never gives up or loses faith.
Love is always hopeful and endures through every trial.

I'm glad she's OK!

The closest I've come to that happening was last month when I took both dogs out to a lake, assuming the water wouldn't be iced over yet. At the lake it wasn't, but I detoured around to a smaller pond while hiking with them and freaked out when I saw Jacks leap onto the ice... <- I mean I laughed about his "where's the water" confused look, but your mind goes through all the what ifs. o_O

I'm so glad Honey got back to you relatively unharmed. Give her extra hugs. And a little smack-pat on the rear for scaring you like that!
