The other night we were in Hewitt and my neighbor texted me and said 'I just wanted to let you know Sasha is out front and her husband can't catch her'... I immediately called Alyssa and she stated that they couldn't find her and that her husband went looking down our street with a flashlight.
Thankfully she texted me while were racing home to let me know that Sasha was now in the backyard....
Our back gate is broken and you have to open and close it a certain way. When our neighbor went looking to see how she escaped he noticed our gate was laying on the ground....So most likely she jumped on it just right and the whole thing feel over.
When we arrived home I immediately went out back to call her in, I knew she was probably scared out of her mind...she wouldn't come in at first, we figured maybe she was still scared and thought she was in trouble for the whole ordeal...we coaxed her in and noticed she was limping. She had a huge gash in her leg, a puncture hole in her mouth, her eyes were blood shot, and she had a few other scrapes...
We knew as expensive as it would be we needed to take her to the animal hospital; thankfully in our panic moment Zach remembered that the lady who lives right behind us teaches Veterinary at a local college in our area; so off we went to take Sasha to her house...I felt horrible knocking on her door at 10:00pm. She welcomed us with open arms and helped us tremendously! She said Sasha could use a couple stitches in her leg, however it will heal on it's own due to the location, the hospital would only clean her mouth out, so she taught us how to do that...she checked her up and down and advised us although we could take her to the hospital she didn't think we needed to.
We had some left over antibiotics and pain meds from when she was fixed last year and she advised us to start her on those.
She was in pain last night and woke us up every hour on the hour; Zach and I decided that we could handle this whole parenting thing as we did good waking up with her all night!! :)
Here are a couple 'pitiful' pictures that I took with my cell phone (sorry for the blurriness).
