so the vet called before the end of the day. beau is going to be fine. "he has lost a lot of blood". he suspects his stoic demeaner has something to do with enimic shock. it took them two attempts of opening him up and closing of a vessel to stop the bleeding. they dont think he needs a transfusion and have someone watching him overnight. they might x-ray him tomorrow to see if he was shot. it was a real deep puncture and clean with nothing they could find close to the surface. they are hoping to give him back to me in the afternoon. he was a real matter of fact kind of guy and asked some questions. "how long has he been bleeding, would there be someone that might shoot him." and said a few really nice things as well. made me feel a little better. a friend of mine thinks we should throw a benifit party for him. to help with the costs... im going to stap a set of handle bars to the damn dog when he gets better and ride him around, since he will now be my new dirt bike!!! fucker. but our house doesnt feel the same, even charlie (the lab) is mopeing around... so the evening is upon us and the kids are back. and it will be early to bed i suppose.
oh the weather says snow down to two thousand feet tonight! thats us! if we have snow tomorrow we are all going to play hookie!!! wish beau luck wouldja!!!
