The silver is now over $60 US with a mintage of 5000. Now this is released I’m not sure how many weeks I need to save but I must have at least one
How was your Saturday night?
I had a very eventful night on Saturday/early Sunday morning with the emergency vets after our dog was bitten.
Was out for the evening constitutional and a little rottie comes running up to us. It was off lead, barking like mad and circling us like a shark. I tried to keep our dog out of the way as the owner (more on this idiot later) came over to try and control his dog.
The rottie lunged at my dog, made contact and bit my dog taking a big chunk out of his side.
@HelpingHands @ChrisSIlver I wasn't sure a fairly graphic photo of a dog bite and subsequent stitches was appropriate so I won't post it, but needless to say it was a hole about the size of a silver crown. If it is OK to post it then I can, otherwise if someone really wants to see they can message me.
Continuing on...I shouted that he needs to get that dog on a lead, to which he replied he did not have one. It was then I noticed the huge gash on my dogs side. Needless to say I was furious and chased after this chap to make sure he a) got a piece of my mind and b) find out his details so I can report him. There was some shouting and commotion and some neighbors came out to help me. It was a horrible situation to be in.
Now, more on this idiot. He was clearly drunk. Stumbling and slurring, trousers falling down and arse hanging out. Completely irresponsible and dangerous dog handling and dog ownership. Made me so angry. This chap slunk off to his house as I was tending to my dog but one of my neighbours followed him home. I went round and gave them a bollocking. Threatened reporting them to the police and local dog wardens. The problem is that with no witnesses to the actual attack, it's his word against mine and there is not much that can or will be done. Sad world we live in.
We have also been lumped with a big emergency vets bill - no chance of getting money out of these people - they said they have no money and would try and help pay but that we would have to beat with them regarding payments. Then there is the hassle and stress of taking them through small claims or trying to squeeze money out of them - it just does not appeal to us at all. Not really a great idea to piss off the neighbors and we don't fancy a brick coming through our window in retribution for pursuing it (they seemed like those kind of people).
The typical thing is we chose to discontinue the insurance about 6 months ago as we were paying £60/month and had not claimed for anything in 3 years. Typical that now we are lumped with just about 1 oz of gold's worth of vets bills 😉😉😉 that's the gamble you pay though!
Money is not the object of this post though, we have safety net savings for these very types of things (as I firmly believe anyone should) so no need to sell any PM's to cover the bill - but still it's a grand gone.
The worst thing is that it even happened at all! It just really pisses me off that some people can be so irresponsible and allowed to own animals. Makes me sick actually. I firmly believe there should be thorough background checks and home checks for any and all people who own/plan to own dogs. It's a subject close to outlet hearts as we have rescued both our dogs who had previously had hard lives.
The good news is that I am very happy to report that our doggie is well and on the mend, albeit with 5 stitches in his side and feeling a bit sore and sorry for himself.
Hopefully very soon he will be back to his old ways like this:
