I ran back up stairs because I knew I had to get both boys up and rush him to the vet's office. Saenz popped up right away as did Zephyr. Saenz got Banjo's kennel while I dressed and brought down a towel. I managed to get Banjo inside the kennel without being bitten; mind you I would not have minded because I know he was in a lot of pain. This looks like he ripped his back open on some wire. We will search the yard later when hubby is home.
Right now Banjo is being taken care of at the South Texas Animal Hospital by Jerica. I was just a almost 'weepy' mess as I watched her exam him after administering some pain meds. His yelps of pain just about ripped my heart out just like when I had to take one of my own babies to the ER to be seen. He looks just awful. He is in surgery now and though it looks like a superficial wound; I am worried to pieces. He is such a wonder pet with a warrior's heart. We owe this little 7 lbs of love so much for saving us from two rattlers and other danger lurking on our property. If ya'll don't mind please say a little prayer because we need our pet back healthy and happy.
BANJO we all love you so much!
On to another major event (rite of passage), Zephyr lost his first tooth with another one to soon join last night. I am so proud of him; he did not get upset over the blood and came to tell us the news. He is such a big boy with no panic in his heart over such a milestone.
Do you see the second one between his top two?
Zephyr found a hand-written under his pillow a 'Thank You' note from Tooth Fairy Jennifer on the outside of an envelop with this surprised tucked inside.
So Gentle Readers, please have a nice day as we wait and say prayers for our little Banjo; he is in good hands.
