Happy Was Not Too Happy
This is Happy. He is one of my daughter's 3 dogs. He is a Blue Nose Pit Bull. He is also the MOST timid dog I have ever met in my life.
Shortly after Laurie left my house last night, I received a frantic phone call. It was hard to understand what she was saying, but what I got from her side of the line was that Happy had a fish hook stuck in his mouth. Look at his lip. You can see it hanging down. I immediately called the Animal ER and told her I would meet her there. (Oh yeah, my husband advised her to cut the hook and push it though to get it out.....NOT).
Happy is almost a year old and is a Rescue Dog. You may remember that Laurie just moved into a different house and thinks Happy found that hook in the garage. It was a large barbed hook. I'm thinking it might have been the type used for Coho fishing which is a big sport here with the St. Joseph River running through this area. Happy was given an anesthetic and the hook had to be cut out of his lip because it was multi-barbed. 3 hours and $250 later, Happy went home a little tired, but Happy!
