Sasha's Great Escape

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).


He was soo worried about her...he feel asleep on the floor with her...

These dogs of ours. You want to kill 'em when they do stupid stuff, but then you love them so much anyway.

I'm glad she is going to be ok.

How adorable is that last pic!! Poor baby. What a night you had!!

Tiffany Pifer said...

I know...he was so worried. :( She is doing better now, thank goodness!

Tiffany Pifer said...

Yes, they do give us a run for our money...but I don't know what I'd do without them :)

Aww, I hope she gets better. I have a Rottie and he is my world. If anything happens to him I go crazy. At least your neighbors tried to help. Mine would run because they think my dog is going to eat them (he is just a big baby and has never hurt anyone).

Your poor baby!!! The pictures are so sad. I'm glad it wasn't worse though. And I was the same way as Z when Spanky broke his leg. I was a tiny bit overprotective. lol.

Our dogs seriously think there humans..I have to admit they are like our children and are very spoiled :)

Tiffany Pifer said...

I am so thankful she wasn't worse also. Yea, I am a little overprotective as well!!

Tiffany Pifer said...

Sasha may look mean (in person), but she is sweet as pie; I'm so glad we are lucky enough to have neighbors who called us also!

LittleGirlsofMine said...

Andrea said...

Poor puppy. I hope he feels better soon.

MamaShells said...

So did she hurt herself with the gate or did something else happen?? Did I miss that part? Glad shes at home tho and u have some wonderful neighbors!!!

Tiffany Pifer said...

I know, I thought it was sweet too--I wish I could have gotten a better pic but I knew if I got up to grab my camera he would have woken up!

Tiffany Pifer said...

Yea, we think we got tangled in the gate when it fell and the spokes (sp? pokey things on the fence?) is what messed her up so bad...she is healing good, but she still isn't feeling so great :(

Ohhh poor baby! I hope that she feels better soon.

Jennifer said...

Awww...poor Sasha! So sorry. Hope she is better soon. It is hard when our pets are sick or hurt. My Sam is like my baby.
