It hasn't been the best week for me or the dogs. It all took a turn on Tuesday evening when I got home and Annie, who up to this point could do no wrong and even if she did, it would be 'okay,' uncharacteristically started a fight. I'm not sure exactly how it started. I only know I'd just gotten home and the dogs were all around greeting me, I saw Annie turn on Sheba and it became a free-for-all. I was able to break up the fight, but not before one of my hands was bitten several times, causing it to become sore and swollen. (Making it difficult to type)
I checked Annie very carefully to make sure she'd not been hurt in the fight because she instantly become a real grouch. I found myself scolding her that evening when she snapped at Todd and the other dogs more than once. Her soft and gentle eyes even looked different. Needless to say, I was very concerned about this sudden change.
At the vet this morning we took an x-ray and her toe isn't broken and there is no visible tumor. We're hoping that the infection has not spread into the bone and a medicated foot soak along with antibiotics and pain medication will do the trick and bring back the lovely Annie that we are all quite fond of!!
