It's not a great picture, let me see if I can find another one......
Ok, here is one of him and his brother Rickie.....
I just love this show!!!!! It comes on AE if your are interested in watching.
This show goes along perfectly with my weekend....
I come home Friday evening after work to find my dog, baby Samson / 8 month old Boxer, not feeling so well.
I came home as usual and went to the kennel to get Samson out. Samson is kennel trained and stays in an inside big metal kennel during the day while I am gone to work, and I let him out right away and he has free run of the house and yard. Well, I knew when he came out of the kennel he looked weird. Then I took a second look, and it looked like he had swelled something bigger than a grapefruit and half of his face was swollen also. I panicked!!! I leave in a small little town and the vet's office closes at 5. There is no emergency vet here the closest one is like at least one hour away. I picked up the phone and called the vet, it was like 4:45 and begged them to stay open for me.....they did thank God!!! I just jerked him up, threw him in the car, and rushed him to vet. When we got to the vet they took one look at him and said he had been bitten by a SNAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my goodness! He was inside the HOUSE!!!!!! Here is some pictures of Samson.....Poor baby!!!
Thank God he is doing fine now! I am leaving work early today to go get him! He had to stay all weekend long at the vet's office so they could watch him and keep an eye on his swelling.
So, now onto the mystery of where Samson got bite at!!!!! Every morning about 6 am I get up and let the dogs outside. I did that on Friday morning also. They stayed outside till about 7:30ish then Samson went straight to his kennel and Ellie Mae (4 year old Boxer) went back outside to play all day. Ellie Mae is terrified of rain. Everytime when it rains she tries to get underneath the house. It has been raining here non stop and she and Samson have been going up underneath the house all week. I am pretty sure they were underneath the house on Friday morning also. So, maybe he did get bite while he was outside. Needless to say I tore my house up this weekend looking for a snake. I didn't find anyhting :( I have gone through closets, moved furniture, you name it. But, what are the chances of me finding this snake. They can get anywhere......
I am really worried!
The vet bill from this snake bit is costing me $289.65 I did not have.
We can't afford another vet bill!!!!!!
If anyone has any tips, I would love to know them!!!!!!
Then, on top of all of this I got super sick Saturday night. I hadn't eaten much that day because of all of the snake hunting going on. I had eaten some sandwiches aound 3 pm. At 10:30 pm I was making some corn casserole for church and decided to eat some because I was starving. At 12 pm I woke up so sick!!!!! I was shaking, like when you are so cold and can not be warmed up. I was freezing!!!! It took me like 2 hours to get over it!!!! I am hypoglaucemic, so I am wondering if it was my sugar?????? I finally went to sleep and woke up a couple hours later having an acid reflux ATTACK!!!!! Seriously!!!! I was hurting so bad!!!!!!
Thank God, I am all better today, just a little tired!!!
I had quit a weekend didn't I??????
