I’m hoping this picture will show it well enough, how we caught a beagle on the fishing line this weekend.
Yes, an unattended fishing pole had bait on the hook, and guess who took the bait!
The hook went through her lip from the inside out, then curved around to hook her again under her nose.
Not a wimper from her, but she wouldn’t let us touch it. Of course the hook was barbed, so of course, we ended up going to the emergency vet on Sunday evening.
She almost died under the anesthesia, never been gassed before, and for a moment, to think — well, anyway, it was scary there for a little bit.
Still, she made it through like a little trooper, although I don’t think she will enjoy fishing with us any more.
We thought about getting her a diamond stud to put in the new hole in her lip, but then decided against it….
