Post by: digndeep400 on December 17, 2007, 08:05:38 PM
i was runing my trapline today and found that i had cought a stray dog . a wite looking lab mix??? there are no houses for miles and i did not have my pole with me but the dog let me take the foothold of his leg that i think was broke so i could not leave him there ,then i remembered my girlfriend wants a dog and it looked like this one needed a home so long story short the dog is at the vet  and i dont have to buy her any thing for christmas. :D

That was a great thing to do, dig!  O0 And the dog won't forget it, either. I would name the dog Lucky.

yea i did name him that ,but the sad thing is he was full of heartworms ,he was 4 years old and it was gona be like 900 bucks worth of a vet bill so i just had him put down. i hated to do it but the vet said that even if i spent the money it still did not look good :'(

Times what you paid out that night by 4 and thats what it would cost to treat for heartworms.Alot of time a dog dies from the dead worms congesting in the lungs or heart.You can treat a dog yourself but it`s like parvo,it`s 50/50 no matter what you do.

Sorry it didn`t turn out so good for you.
