Today the government starts paying HIM

Yes today is the Blacksmith's 62nd Birthday.  Oh how I wish he was here so I could give him a big hug, or bake him a cake, or ask him for some help . . . but for the 38th year, he is gone on his birthday. He always goes on a primitive muzzle loading squirrel hunt. 














And this is why I could use his help. Our black lab Bentley was bitten, we believe by a snake. He wasn't far from me or the grand daughter when he gave out 2 little barks. But soon he started acting different, then his eyes swelled shut, his whole face started growing. I called the vet, first we give him ibuprofen (we used liquid children's stuff), later he will get antibiotics. 

So from this day on the government will pay the blacksmith to stay alive!!  

Happy Birthday Bernie!

Congrats to the hubby! Hope Bentley is doing better. Sorry I didn't get a chance to talk to,you at the last guild meeting but I had to hurry home and feed some animals!

Happy Birthday to Bernie, and hope that Bentley gets better, we had a cat who we think was bitten by a snake, took about a week on meds and she was ok. Enjoy the rest of your week!

Happy birthday to the blacksmith. :) My sister's dog was bitten by a snake a couple of years ago when we were up there - it was pretty awful. It was a copperhead and it got her in the neck. She lived over it but really was never the same after that. I hope your sweet dog does well with the antibiotics. blessings, marlene

Hope he had a wonderful birthday!

Government pay is not a bad thing......

With all our dogs and cats over the years, I don't think we have ever had one bitten by a snake. I hope your dog recovers fully.
