I never write but Im running on fumes and maybe someone will get help from this.
Dont call 911 if you have an emergency with a pet, they wont do shit.
Last night I was studying for the CPA exam (40 minutes from my house). I get a call from my fiance in full panic mode. She said that our dog had fallen in the canal behind the house. Well Ive jumped in the canal in the summer and it is almost impossible for me to get back out by myself.
I told her to call 911. She did and they didnt do shit. Not sure what I expected them to do but was hoping they would send a cop or someone to help her out of the water when she went in to get the dog.
The water is probably in the mid to high 50s right now. Our dog is 35lbs and is strugeling to stay near her. So she calls me back after 911 wouldnt do shit and she hung up on the operator.
So I tell her the only other way to help. I tell her that the dog wont be able to last in the water as long as she can. I tell her she will need to jump in the water and lift him out of it. And that I would be home in 20-30 min to help get her out of the water. So she does just that.
Im driving up the main road at 6pm doing 75 and weaving through traffic. I get home to pull her out of the watter and have a bloody shivering dog to warm up and clean off.
He scratched himself up on the oysters and barnicals trying to climb up the dock pilings.
Now everyone is fine. No majore injuries he just has a bunch of small scratches and cuts that we need to watch for infection.
I see myself putting up a fence in the near future.
Im tired as crap. She didnt sleep last night so that means I didnt sleep last night.
