Minnie Pearl

You've seen this pic before. I haven't caught a more recent one. (I didn't have the camera on me at the time) Minnie now sports a cast on her right rear leg. I am sorry about this, but I am NOT surprised.

You live in the country, you let your dogs run free - right? Free to get hit or killed on the busy roads. Free to damage or steal other people's property. I'm just bummed when people are not responsible and have such little value of their pets lives. They have lost several to our busy road already.

Well, at least she didn't get killed...yet. Only time before it happens, she is still running the roads... :(

  2. People are bad about letting dogs run loose here in our town too. Susie has lost about three of her lives to big dogs coming into our yard and attacking her.

  3. thankfully...so far...I've seen no dogs running loose in this neighborhood. We are rather insular here...it's a circle off of a very main road...we're bounded by commerce on the west side, a fenced subdivision on the south and east side and the main road on the north...let your pet run wild and they'll not last long here. I did see a cat in my back yard back around spring, haven't seen it since. Of course something has been killing my birds...as evidence by feathers and carcasses under the oak tree. At least two blue jays and maybe a mockingbird have fallen. I hope Minnie Pearl has nine lives...or more...like a cat. I think she's going to need them.

  4. Awe poor Minnie Pearl :-( I hate it when dogs run loose like that... And we get that a lot even on our busy street... which amazes me. Why would someone put their dog in danger like that!! **shaking my head**
